Model: Triple S in white and blue
Release Date: Available now and for pre-order until May 29
Editor’s Notes: Earlier this year, we couldn't tell if Balenciaga's adidas Triple S was the real deal or another impressive fake-out. Fast forward to Balenciaga's Spring 2023 runway: we can confirm that the collaborative kicks are indeed authentic (and available to cop as we speak).
Unlike its Gucci monogrammed Triple S sneakers, Balenciaga's adidas Triple S opts for a more chill vibe with a noise-free white, black, and grey color scheme. The luxury fashion house's bulky-soled model then gets dressed in the adidas iconic 3-Stripes on the upper and a co-branded logo on the tongue and ankle tab.
While some are over the chunky sneaker legacy spearheaded by Balenciaga's Triple S kicks, Pharrell Williams is still riding the wave as he sported the hefty collaborative sneakers during the brand's Spring 2023 runway show on May 22.
Of course, the same design concept follows the blue iteration of the Balenciaga x adidas Triple S, which made its grand debut alongside Balenciaga's latest adidas apparel collection.
Balenciaga brought out the popular kids for its adidas collaboration, revisiting its beloved sock sneaker, the Speed Trainer, which fast fashion brands couldn't resist recreating.
Well, there's your confirmation, folks. Balenciaga x adidas Triple S are here and legit. But, the sneakers will only be around until May 29 for pre-order with Balenciaga.
Though, I suspect a wider release is on the horizon through adidas' CONFIRMED, as the brand recommends signing up for updates on the app.
