Balenciaga Upgrades the Triple S With Metallic Silver Accents

A sharp revision of the must-have shoe.

By //Footwear

For Spring/Summer 2018, Balenciaga‘s red-hot Triple S sneaker receives a slight makeover, with the ultra-chunky sneaker outfitted in a new colorway.

Iconic detailing like the side and toe embroidery remain intact and the unmistakably chunky sneaker’s upper still boasts its usual blend of mesh and nubuck. The stacked rubber soles feature a rich array of distinctive, yet complementary, colors. Most notably, metallic silver panels have been added towards the front of the shoe, elevating the toe box and front of the laces with a slight sheen. Black and white laces and red “Triple S” branding on the tongue complete the busy sneaker, adding a final level of visual complexity.

Take a closer look at the sold-out sneakers on MATCHESFASHION. Meanwhile, Balenciaga‘s Demna Gvasalia recently sat down for a chat with The Guardian, offering some quotable statements like “I don’t think elegance is relevant.”
