Louis Vuitton has been no stranger to the sneaker trends that have been seen on the runways the past few seasons. For their SS18 collection, the Italian brand unveiled the Archlight sneaker, following suit with the "ugly sneaker" fad. Now, LV presents their latest shoe, one with a lifestyle-centric appeal.

The Vuitton New Runner is a meeting of Louis Vuitton's craftsmanship with a more casual aesthetic meant for everyday looks, producing a cutting-edge sneaker with active sport detailing. The knit trainer is created with elastics, providing a sock-like comfort felt in the breeziest sneakers. The outsole is formed by three different parts, all assembled by hand. Louis Vuitton's heritage “Volez, Voguez, Voyagez” is incorporated into the trainer as well, with a "VVV" motif sitting on the tongue. On the back of the New Runner sits a single "V", a nod to classic military emblems. The sleek, futuristic shoe is made with the brand's history in mind, creating footwear like never before. See photos of the new sneaker, and all of its colorways, below.
