Louis Vuitton Reveals New Colourways For Technical V.N.R Sneakers

The Louis Vuitton V.N.R combines classic, elegant design and the House’s signatures with ultimate technical innovation. Twelve months of meticulous research and development have led to a shoe that is light and flexible, and utterly contemporary in terms of both savoir-faire and aesthetic.

 

This trainer is the House’s second full knit sneaker made in Italy. Months of experimentation have allowed for one piece of knit to combine three yarns, to add depth and intrigue. In total, each pair of shoes requires three hours to be assembled with keen attention to detail.

 

Embedded with elasticity, the knit wraps the foot for a sock-like comfort, providing extra support. Especially made for the size of the shoe, with no cutting involved, the seamless upper part weighs just 60 grams, and takes one and half hours to knit. Expansive materials make up the sole to allow for suppleness and wearability, and the highly resistant outsole is made from three separate pieces which are carefully assembled by hand.

 

For the first time, Vuitton’s heritage of fine craftsmanship and excellence is introduced to a technical trainer, resulting in a lifestyle sneaker combining modernity with sophistication.
