Highsnobiety aims to provide our readers with the latest updates in the sneaker world. However, we cannot verify the reliability of any unauthorized leaks or rumors unless this information is provided directly by the brands themselves.

Ay yi yi, what a way to end the week. You've seen the Gucci Triple S, you've seen the Guccididas shoes, but you ain't never seen an adidas x Balenciaga Triple S before.

Nor did you ask for it. But here we are anyways.

On March 17, two images of the supposed adidas x Balenciaga Triple S collab was uploaded by sneaker leak page @apolloluo1976, showing the profile and rear of the shoe.

In the photos, the black and white Triple S sports co-branding from both companies on the heel, a Three Stripes (Triple Stripes?)/Balenciaga logo combo on the upper, and that's about it.

Not terribly exciting — if the shoe's even real, of course — but remember that the Gucci Triple S was itself quite straightforward, with one model simply covering Balenciaga's signature sneaker silhouette with an all-over "GG" monogram print.

Plus, Balenciaga and Gucci are both owned by Kering and it's not hard to imagine the creative team of one company putting the creative team of another in touch with adidas.

Though I'd have thought that we'd see a teaser at Balenciaga's Fall/Winter 2022 runway show, like with the Balenciaga/Gucci Spring 2022 presentation.

When Highsnobiety reached out to Balenciaga to confirm or deny the veracity of this Frankenstein'd sneaker and a potential adidas collaboration, a rep only replied to say that they "have any comment." Mysterious!

@apolloluo1976, for what it's worth, seems to upload images of shoes that skirt the line of authenticity — one day, it's a pair of believable Pharrell adidas or denim Jordan 1s, the next it might be a suspicious Nike Dunk colorway.

Another round of images have emerged of the same colorway, suggesting that this shoe is indeed the real deal, perhaps with a complete capsule collection to follow.
