5 Affordable Alternatives to Balenciaga's Chunky Triple-S Sneaker

Get the look for less.

Balenciaga‘s Triple-S sneaker has officially reached grail status. When released in 2017, the sneaker community gawked at the awkward-looking upper and impossibly thick sole that never seemed to end. We weren’t sure if it was a joke or if lead designer Demna Gvasalia actually planned to sell the layered runner. Almost a year later, it’s clear that the Triple-S is still the shoe of the season. It dominated Fashion Month street style and has been spotted on celebrities of all kinds including style icon and risk-taker Rihanna. When a new colorway of the sneaker is released, it almost immediately sells out despite its hefty $900 USD retail price.

For those who are not entirely sure if they can pull of the look, the cost may deter them from trying out chunky sneakers in general. The trend is simple to style and can add edge to an outfit. In the interest of saving money, we’ve rounded up five affordable alternatives to the shoe from Eytys, Skechers, FILA and more.

Our top pick of the bunch would be Nike‘s upcoming M2K Tekno. Nike simply couldn’t ignore the trend towards thick-soled sneakers, and immediately dropped its hat into the ring with this new dad shoe. The silhouette seems to respond to all things popular including adidas’ YEEZY BOOST 700 and all other brands that are releasing their own versions, including PUMA and New Balance.

Read our list of the best Triple-S alternatives that can give you the same look for less.
