A trend that has been famous for years in the fashion scene is the “ugly dad sneaker” trend. You know, these shoes with the chunky and futuristic looking soles which your dad always wore to your hockey matches on the Sunday mornings? Well, thanks to Balenciaga, these “ugly” trainers, which were super popular in the 90’s, are back and better than ever! This is why we love the Balenciaga Triple S sneakers so much.

Various Designers, like Louis Vuitton, Prada and Dior, have brought this trend back to life, but the most dominating dad sneaker at the moment is Balenciaga’s Triple S sneaker. The Balenciaga Triple S sneakers debuted on the runway during the Balenciaga’s Fall/Winter 2017 collection. It features a retro-inspired design with its signature triple-stacked sole. And yes, this triple-stacked sole inspired the name of the trainers. The sole of the sneaker is basically a combination of running, basketball and track racer soles.



Triple S colours

The first Triple S sneakers are made of traditional mesh and nubuck paneling for an off-white based upper with soft pink, yellow, red and black shade accents. The shoelaces are two-toned and you can find the brand’s name in bold letters on the sides. Also, your shoe size can be found on the nose of the trainers. Some people hate it, some people love it! What makes this sneaker extra special, is of course the signature triple-stacked soles. The trainers are available in many different colour combinations. The black Triple S sneakers can go with everything, just like the white Triple S. Balenciaga also launched a Triple S clear sole sneaker. This sneaker has a chunky see through sole. 



How to wear Triple S sneakers

Because the sneakers look quite brushy, you might not really know how to wear them. But believe me, it’s easier than you think. the Balenciaga Triple S sneakers look amazing under a pair of straight leg jeans and an oversized sweater, but can also be worn with a pair of skinny jeans or even a Carrie Bradshaw type of skirt.
