On Sept. 21, Balenciaga is releasing the Triple S sneaker collection, a line of mesh and leather shoes with a notably bulky sole. Described as “multi-material oversize trainers with a complex sole,” they come in several different colorways.
But so far, the style has been garnering mixed reactions from sneakerheads and fans of the high-end brand. The $795 shoe, which takes inspiration from the ’90s, as well as dad-esque normcore street style, is being slammed as “ugly” by some Twitter users.
“£500 for these new Balenciagas and they really be looking like shoes found in lost property at school,” wrote Zach Redmon.
Another user said, “I’m torn. The Balenciaga sneakers are tough, BUT they also look like an old ass pair of shoes that my mom keeps in a box in the garage.”
Noah compared the style to sneakers you’d wear for gym class, while another user expressed that they better not see any of their friends donning Triple S.
