Move Over, Triple S – Your Better-Dressed Cousin Just Arrived

Date: February 07 2018

Balenci-who? The Triple S can eat Archlight’s dust as far as this writer is concerned. Since spying this oversized, crazy-soled godsend on the feet of P.E Nation's Pip Edwards a few weeks back, there have been sleepless nights. How can I get it? Will I finally win this week’s lottery jackpot, even though I didn’t buy a ticket (again)? Will the Archlight sell out instantly? How fast can Amazon ship ‘Robbing Banks for Dummies’? It’s been exhausting.

Louis Vuitton – fashionably late to the party – have created a sneaker that is, like the Triple S, crowd-pleasingly chunky. But unlike the Triple S, the Archlight is not ‘clunky.’ Yes, there’s a difference. Where the Triple S often looks comical on-foot – a cartoonish vibe exacerbated by its pre-soiled finish – the Archlight looks clean, sharp and sophisticated. The sneaker's junk in the trunk is balanced by its high-reaching heel counter and tongue. While oversized, everything feels in proportion. 


With Triple S production recently/sneakily shifted to China, we know which crazy-expensive high fashion footwear we’ll be throwing our (imaginary) money at.
