This is the style that pretty much invented the dad sneaker trend. Better yet, they’re also 100% non-leather, so Veggies and Vegans – get your wallets out.
Triple S’ are as polarising as they come, you either love them or loathe them – but, either way, you can’t ignore them!
The inspiration for the design of the shoe came from a mixture of running, basketball and track shoes. But thinking about how to style the trainer that has three stacked soles can be pretty intimidating.
Fear not, we’re here to guide you through the best ways to style the coveted trainer. Here, we’ll go through our three favourite variations of the Triple S’s, and the perfect fit’s to pair with them.

The Sports-Luxe Trend
Okay, this is a style that we can get on board with.
Ever just wanted to throw on a pair of comfy sneakers for a day at the office…or even a night out? Well, the sports-luxe trend has made this a reality! It bridges the gap between formally chic, and comfortably casual.
The Triple S’ can elevate any outfit in this category. But, pairing the shoes with an oversized suit is by far the most *chefs kiss* of them all.
Our variant of choice is the clear sole Triple S trainers in white. If you’re new to dipping your toes into the world of sneakers, make it known that a white pair is your new best friend. They go with everything!
Even though we’re now in the depths of winter – we can always do with a pop of colour in our wardrobes. Luckily, bright and bold suits are right on trend this season, and we’ve found the perfect one!
The cropped trousers are a voluminous silhouette, that’ll be perfect to showcase the trainers. The boxy blazer features traditional double-breasted button detailing.
This is the type of suit you can take from the office to the cocktail bar – wear it with a turtleneck during the day, and wear the blazer alone with layered chunky jewellery come eve.
The Dad Trend
We just couldn’t resist pairing the OG Dad trainers with an outfit inspired by the trend.
It wasn’t that long ago that our dad’s outfits were considered passe – So, we thank you Balenciaga, and dads of the world for revitalising the fashion world and gracing us with your comfy and undeniably cool fits.
The Triple S’ in beige are the perfect retro hue for this outfit.
Scandi retailer Weekday is the embodiment of this trend, and are a one-stop-shop for dad inspired fits.
The Expand Baggy Jeans ooze casual 90s vibes. Paired with the Lake V Sweater for the ultimate comfy, yet cool outfit. Accessorise with a chunky necklace, and a 90s inspired baguette bag to add to the finishing touches.
The inception of the loungewear trend came from COVID.
Thank you influencers for telling us that it’s okay to wear joggers on a weekday!
The Faded Pink Triple S’ are our last variant of choice and, we’ve definitely saved the best ‘til last over here. The shade of pink adds a touch of daintiness to the chunky style.
Pretty much every retailer is selling their version of loungewear at the moment, so we’re kind of spoiled for choice! We’ve done all the hard research for you and found (in our opinion) the perfect choice.
Bring a touch of spring into your wardrobe early with Balenciaga’s very own yellow lounge set.
So, that wraps up our rundown on how to style Balenciaga Triple S trainers.
It’s officially acceptable to throw on a pair of trainers for a day at the office, and even for an evening at the bar. The sports-luxe trend is gaining major traction, and isn’t going away anytime soon. So, stock up on your blazers ladies and gents – they’re the Triple S’ new best-friend!
Ofcourse, styling the OG Dad trainers is the perfect shoe of choice to style with a fully-fledged dad inspired look. I mean, if you can’t get your hands on a pair of baggy denim jeans, and an oversized jumper, just raid your dad’s closet – crisis averted.
Finally, loungewear. For a day at the mall, working from home, or your weekly grocery shop – this is the style that will always bring comfort and style. Pairing your Triple S’ with a matching lounge set, and layering with chunky jewellery is probably the most seamless way to style the coveted shoes.
