Brand: Louis Vuitton
Key Features: The sneaker features a white and blue colorway that reminds strongly of the famed UNC Air Jordan 1 colorway, also used by Virgil Abloh as part of his “The Ten” Nike collaboration. Here, the designer has applied Louis Vuitton’s iconic monogram pattern on the grained leather upper, as well as gold LV details on the tongue.

Editor’s Notes: On this season’s Louis Vuitton Rivoli sneaker, Virgil Abloh looks to have recreated a highly successful color blocking that the designer had used previously as part of his “The Ten” Nike collaboration. The Italian-made shoes resemble Off-White™’s Nike Air Jordan 1 “UNC” but where Abloh’s Air Jordan 1s featured a highly deconstructed design, Louis Vuitton’s iteration arrives in more luxurious materials, complete with the fashion house’s monogram motif.
Unlike the aforementioned collaboration, these Louis Vuitton high-tops come with a designer price tag, retailing for $965. Also available in a white and black colorway, the sneaker can already be shopped at Louis Vuitton’s online store.
