Balenciaga’s love-em-or-hate-em pre-distressed “dad” sneakers were on full display at Fashion Week. Shown here in green, gray and yellow — the Triple S, first introduced on the runway for fall ’17, is paired with burgundy socks and white pants. A red striped sweater and a camel-colored peacoat with cutoff sleeves on top completed the look.

Phrases like “Give me more!” and “Life is beautiful!” as well as the hashtag #DG covered a pair of crisp white leather sneakers from the iconic brand. Furthermore, cupid-style hearts, stars and smiley faces added a playful element to the shoes.
