Balenciaga’s Triple S sneakers have been an icon of streetwear culture ever since their runway debut in 2017. Often imitated but never equalled, the silhouette is named after its triple-stacked sole – a statement foundation for the dynamic panelled upper that sees suede fused with athletic mesh inserts. They’re not a product of the current chunky trend, but rather the shoes that started it all.
Revered by industry insiders and sneakerheads alike, Balenciaga’s chunky Triple S sneakers perfectly capture the street-style look of the moment, especially in this distressed version. The name refers to the pair’s three soles that have been molded together for chunky elevation. The toe is embroidered with the size of the shoe.
