Highsnobiety aims to provide our readers with the latest updates in the sneaker world. However, we cannot verify the reliability of any unauthorized leaks or rumors unless this information is provided directly by the brands themselves.
Last week we got a first look at the rumored upcoming footwear, courtesy of multimedia company, Saint. The two photos show a wheat-colored ankle boot, reminiscent of Louis Vuitton's Creeper Boot. It appears to be crafted from suede, featuring gold foil branding, gold eyelets, and gold monogram flowers on the midsole towards the heel. The NBA's logo is stamped on the tongue, while similar co-branding is featured on the insole.
Now, thanks to RetroShowParis, we have an even closer look.
The drop is likely to include bags, too. According to teasers posted by HypeNeverDies, Louis Vuitton's Keepall Bandoulière duffle bags are being done-up with an NBA co-sign — the traditional monogram leather is accented by red, white, and blue piping and straps to mirror the NBA logo, which sits in the corner of the bag. It looks like the duffles will arrive in two leather colorways — dark brown and grey. Take a look below.
Louis Vuitton announced a multiyear partnership with the NBA at the beginning of 2020, of which Virgil Abloh has been tapped to design co-branded apparel and accessories collections. First, we saw a luxe travel case for the league's Larry O’Brien Trophy, and now it appears a footwear collab is on the horizon.
Louis Vuitton has yet to confirm any details surrounding the NBA-branded boot, so be sure to check back with us for further details.
