Balenciaga’s Triple S made its debut in 2017, then quickly established itself as a cult classic for sneakerheads. Characterised by an oversized profile, the Triple S sneakers feature a chunky outsole with multiple layers of panel detailing. This intricate design and its ability to combine both wearability and style naturally garner high praise.
In truth, the Triple S initially saw mixed reactions due to its over-the-top, complex silhouette. However, it is now one of the most sought-after sneakers around. Featuring in big-name collaborations with Adidas and Gucci, it is also a seasonal staple appearing in numerous colours and materials.
This season, Balenciaga dresses the Triple S up in full denim. Classic iterations usually come in a mixture of colours and materials like mesh and leather detailing. So this is one of the rare few times that Balenciaga opts for a single colour and material throughout. Matching coloured laces and rubber soles also give it a stylish tone-on-tone look.
Denim isn’t the most common pick for sneakers either, making this a must-have for any sneakerhead’s collection. Now open for pre-orders, the denim Triple S will come in sizes for men and women, each retailing at SGD1550.
