Louis Vuitton has taken their first step into technical sneakers with the release of their New Runner. Fusing together an all-over knitted construction with lux materials and an activewear-esque sole unit, the shoe is a real step forward for the French fashion house.
The New Runners are available in all black, olive or red, with each shoe featuring a grooved tongue and tonal heel tab.
The New Runners mark a changing of the guard for the French fashion house, with Kim Jones, a self-proclaimed ‘sneakerhead’, taking the brand towards a much more contemporary styling, especially with the New Runners nailing the current trend for ‘dad sneakers‘.
On top of their recent collaboration with world-renowned skate brand Supreme, Louis Vuitton has been redesigning their staple items to give them more of a modern spin, including by offering customers the chance to make their own bespoke belts.
