Louis Vuitton Teases Clunky Skate-Inspired Sneakers
More Osiris influences?
The new Louis Vuitton continues to surprise. Thanks to Imed Soussi, a member of the fashion house’s PR team, we have a first look at the luxury label’s newest footwear silhouette, dubbed “ZigZag.” Similar to the cult-classic Osiris D3 and A$AP Rocky’s collaborative Under Armour shoe, the new silhouette sports a thick, cushioned tongue and rope laces, surrounded by a wavy “cage” with eyelets located in between the arches.
Two iterations of the LV Men Shoes Studio-designed sneaker have surfaced so far, one offering a metallic silver upper with blue accents, and the other sporting a black upper with similar blue detailing, except for the green monogram branding on the tongue. A thick midsole and contrasting-colored outsole complete the new model.
Check out both new sneakers below, along with a look at the house’s clunky “Fluo” silhouette. Are these skate-influenced sneakers breathing life into the clunky shoe trend or is it too little too late?
Most recently, Louis Vuitton announced a book celebrating 20 years of RTW fashion.
