Dave Chappelle Rocks the Balenciaga Triple S at DC Jazz Festival


Dave Chappelle has been experimenting with his fashion choices since re-entering the global spotlight. At the DC Jazz Festival at City Winery, Chappelle rocked the on-trend fashion sneaker: the Balenciaga Triple S.

The bulky sneaker is a mainstay of rappers, celebrities, and athletes, and it’s easy to see why: the shoe’s $900 price tag comes with an instantly recognizable design and a height boost of about two inches due to the bulky over-designed midsole.

Chappelle has a thing for designer sneakers (him, or his stylist) because he was also spotted in the Fear of God Basketball Sneaker at the Netflix FYSEE Kick-Off Event. Jerry Lorenzo’s Fear of God basketball shoe is a $1000 copy of the Reebok BB5600, a vintage basketball sneaker with deep roots in the NBA. Chappelle was very on-trend by rocking it with an oversized tee and monochromatic fit.

Be sure to catch Chappelle’s latest specials, Equanimity and The Bird Revelation on Netflix.

  1. Insanely funny dude. Shocked he’s allowed to perform in this ridiculously PC world we live in now.

    I guess it was only sooner or later that irregular inventory from Goodwill would be considered fashionable. Holes in the shirts that look like dresses and pants that are 8 inches too short. SMH
