Teaming up with Tokyo-based boutique AND SQUARE, Ceeze has crafted his first bespoke Triple S. Inspired by Atmos’ “Animal Pack,” the shoe is made from a variety of materials. Cheetah, Zebra and Tiger pony hair are used for the upper while black shark is pulled for the upper’s overlays and white ostrich leg covers the toe box. Accents include red pig suede and orange napa leather, giving the Triple S textural and tonal variety. The iconic Balenciaga sneaker, usually released in colorful or monochromatic palettes, receives an all-over animal treatment, creating a fierce and eye-catching statement piece.
The “Wild Thing” Triple S is limited to 10 pairs worldwide and will be available on Ceeze’s website at 6:30 p.m. EST for $3750 USD. The AND SQUARE store in Shibuya will also have a pair of the sneakers on view the week of September 23.
