London-based menswear blogger Joel Mcloughlin aka Galluck unboxes a pair of Balenciaga Triple S sneaker, a shoe he’s been obsessed with owning since the brand first showed them on its spring 2017 runway.
The video provides an up close look at the shoe, but also details how he went about purchasing them, which included queuing up at a London Balenciaga store where there were a surprisingly large number of people waiting to buy the shoe.
He notes there were five colorways, but he knew before he went to the store, he wanted the black pair, and while he would have bought the grey ones as well, the store limited each customer to one pair.
According to the video, the $850 shoe was available for a few hours after they went live on Balenciaga’s site today (September 21, 2017), but they are now all sold out.
Australian style blogger Li-Anne Kuek aka Monsieur Banana also checked out the shoe at Sneaker Boy boutique and you can check her video out along with Galluck’s below.
