Sneakers
From the ground up

Brand: Louis Vuitton

Model: SS18 sneakers

Key Features: According to Louis Vuitton, “Nicolas Ghesquière’s SS18 sneakers were inspired both by the vintage ’90s basketball look and futuristic trends. Using a mix of technical fabrics, an oversize springy rubber sole and a prominent tongue, the sneaker embraces a timeless story: a shoe from the past, in the future. The different color versions were imagined to fit different styles and times. A black-on-black or all white version to go with flowery dresses and pop color versions for a modern twist. This sneaker captures what Nicolas had in mind and in essence his love for sci-fi, such as Stranger Things or Star Wars.

Release Date: SS18

Price: 850 EUR / $1,009 USD

Buy: Louis Vuitton

Editor’s Notes: Louis Vuitton is the latest to serve up an unconventional, chunky silhouette on the runway. After brands like Balenciaga, Gucci and Dior have started to open up the category with their own chunky footwear, the trend seems to show no signs of slowing.
