The question is...Do you own a pair of Balenciaga trainers yet?
Before we get on to history, let's talk about the phenomenon of Balenciaga trainers over the last 2 years. To be honest, Balenciaga trainers where not on many peoples shopping list until they released the iconic Triple S trainer and this sent the internet crazy for Balenciaga trainers and they have become the most sought after piece of footwear we have experienced in contemporary and street fashion.
Balenciaga is a luxury fashion house founded in Spain back in 1919 by Cristobal Balenciaga.
Balenciaga has always been highly regarded for their innovative use of fabric. Embroidery and bold materials and they have gone on with that ethos with their introduction to the sneaker marketplace with the iconic Balenciaga Triple S which launched in 2016.
Triple S stands for a Triple stacked sole unit, essentially 3 sole units compressed into 1 making the Balenciaga Triple S and a true icon in today's contemporary streetwear scene.
There’s no doubt that now Helmed by Vetements' Mr Demna Gvasalia, Balenciaga offers an unexpected reassessment of a structure while referencing traditional tailoring techniques. Look out for unorthodox basics and refined footwear.
