You can’t keep ugly down for long: the second drop of the Balenciaga Triple S Sneaker is imminent and this is your shortcut to ensuring you don’t miss out.
WORDS BY RYAN THOMPSON
Undeniably one of the hottest, most-hyped releases of the season, the first batch of Balenciaga’s Triple S sneakers arrived on Farfetch and sold out faster than you can tie a pair of shoelaces. Why? A game-changing silhouette for starters - the Triple S gets its name from the three stacked soles which were taken from running, basketball and track shoe moulds. Not content with just the one ground-breaking feature, Demna Gvasalia also distressed elements of the upper, threw in some rope laces and had the shoe size embroidered on the outside of the toe for footwear not like anything we’ve seen before.
So the good news is Farfetch has managed to secure the single biggest offering for the Triple S’s second drop: over 200 pairs across 4 different styles to take your streetwear game up to legend level. The bad news is that they’re not here just yet. But if you keep checking in with us, right here, we’ll lead you straight to the prize as soon as they arrive.
