Less than 24 hours after debuting his first collection for Louis Vuitton SS19, Virgil Abloh is already dishing out exclusive drops from the brand to streetwear contemporaries.

Chicago-born streetwear designer Don C revealed via Instagram that Abloh had gifted him with an exclusive pair of Louis Vuitton kicks. The sneaker has a white and green colorway with gold LV branding on the upper. Abloh added a personal touch for Don C, handwriting “DON” next to the branding and adding “CHICAGO, MICHIGAN AVE” on the midsole.

While it’s highly unlikely the kicks will get a wider release, you can check out the original posts below for a closer look.

Now we make the product for the block 📍#chicagowins ✨
