First unveiled last year on the runway, Virgil Abloh’s first sneakers for Louis Vuitton have become one of the most highly anticipated elements of the Men’s Spring-Summer 2019 Collection.
The basketball-inspired LV Trainers combine vintage lines and Louis Vuitton signatures, all with the outstanding quality of Italian shoemaking savoir-faire. Available in three models, from low to high-top and in various primary colourways, the LV Trainers embody Virgil Abloh’s desire to design articles for Louis Vuitton that capture the spirit of the times while remaining timeless.
Men’s Artistic Director Virgil Abloh was inspired by vintage basketball shoes when creating his first Louis Vuitton sneaker design. The LV Trainer is both retro and innovative while incorporating several of Louis Vuitton’s signatures and featuring exceptional Italian craftsmanship.
“The idea is to detect chic. I think that culture is an inexhaustible source of absolute beauty. So I try to create things that are current, up-to-date and timeless, but of exceptional quality.” Virgil Abloh
