A sample of Virgil Abloh’s Louis Vuitton x (RED) LV Trainer is being auctioned off by acclaimed auction house Sotheby’s. The sneaker, which is part of Louis Vuitton’s longstanding collaboration with Bono and Bobby Shriver’s (RED) foundation, has no reserve price and is expected to fetch anywhere between $30,000 and $40,000.

The pair being auctioned off is a UK size 9 and will be on view by appointment in Sotheby’s New York galleries during the auction period, which runs from today through March 4. All proceeds from the sale will be donated to (RED).

Designed by Virgil Abloh, the LV Trainer first appeared in Louis Vuitton's Spring/Summer 2019 show. Since its release, the silhouette has quickly become a go-to model within the fashion house's footwear lineup.

Louis Vuitton's (RED) LV Trainer features a white leather upper with bright red piping and details, as well as the house's signature monogram on the white leather upper.

This particular color was made available to the public on December 1 in a slightly altered design. Louis Vuitton donated $200 for each pair sold to the Global Fund to fight AIDS in support of (RED).
