There’s no doubt that you’ve missed the hottest shoe this season: the Balenciaga Triple-S sneaker. Whether you love it or hate it, this shoe has become a staple piece among fashion enthusiasts and an iconic addition to the current trend of chunky “dad sneakers.” Our second installment of “One Item Two Ways” focuses on the coveted sneaker, and gives it two different, edgy approaches.
The Balenciaga Triple-S sneaker comes in several different colorways, ranging from an SSENSE-exclusive blue-and-yellow, to a sleek, cream hue. Peep the outfits below to see how you can rock the shoe. Cop the statement shoe over at Balenciaga, where it retails at approximately $885 USD.
There’s nothing more in-trend at the moment than an edgy suit, this blazer and trouser combo is both simple yet unique, and is a steal at H&M. Pair the over-sized jacket with a tight fitting bodysuit, like this simple one from Topshop. Follow the monochrome vibe and throw on a pair of black, ribbed socks to contrast against the bright hues of the shoe, and you’re ready to go. To finish off the look, top it all off with a burgundy liquid lipstick from NARS. This one is a guaranteed showstopper.
This look is perfect for everyday wear, and the sweater dress from Artizia can go from day to night in a matter of minutes. Paired with an over-sized denim jacket you can’t go wrong, and adding a pair of statement socks to the bold shoes will provide the perfect balance between the minimal dress and the colorful sneakers. When it comes to accessories, Balenciaga‘s “SINNERS” dad cap is perfect to pull together the Balenciaga aesthetic. Paired with sleek Gentlemonster shades, jet-black eyeliner and MILK’s Lip Vinyl, you’ve got a simple, yet eye-catching look that’s right on trend.
