Demna Gvasalia is bringing all the nostalgia of my former eighth grade skater self with these freshly unveiled Balenciaga Triple-S sneakers.
The bulky, triple layered sole, and distressed leather channel flashbacks of grinding on wooden benches in Soaps while listening to Eminem and are perfectly imperfect.
Sticking to the script as the black and red colorway, Triple-S features European sizes on the toe box, two-tone tube laces, calf skin mid sole, mesh inlay & Heely inspired italic branding on the tongue to round out these high end skate sneakers.
Three new colorways debuted at the Balenciaga F/W 17′ fashion show with the grey available now at Nieman Marcus for the Fonzie level cool price tag of $795.
