Taking the wave of bulky footwear to new levels, Balenciaga welcomes the sports of running, basketball and track and field into one striking model. Releasing on September 21 for $795 USD, the striking sneaker boasts a vintage worn-in aesthetic while using materials such as nubuck and mesh throughout its upper. The speckled laces offset the solid color blocking while Balenciaga branding can be found on its lateral side with a Triple S motif placed on each tongue.
Made in Italy, its massive sole unit is the main attraction via a 10mm arch and overall size. To complement the branding found on its side paneling, you’ll also find a Balenciaga hit on the rear of its thick sole unit. As expected, these quickly sold out upon their release.
There’s no word yet if Balenciaga plans to restock, but if the Triple S matches the same popularity of the Speed Trainer, it’s evident that they’ll return.
