Louis Vuitton is upcycling trainers from its archive as part of the Men’s Spring-Summer 2021 collection.
The very first LV Trainer, unveiled during Men’s Artistic Director Virgil Abloh’s debut Spring-Summer 2019 show for Louis Vuitton has been upcycled in a sustainable manner for this season’s offering.
The new design was developed with Louis Vuitton’s dedicated shoe workshop in Fiesso d’Artico according to a sustainable upcycling strategy aiming to optimize the use of existing materials. The decision to upcycle these classic pieces is an ode to Louis Vuitton’s dedication to sustainability in its products and processes.
The low-top version is now available in five bright new shades and features a padded collar. his iconic shoe, featuring an “LV Upcycling” edging on the back, the Louis Vuitton signature on the side and Monogram flowers on the sole, as well as a fluorescent tag on the right foot, is embedded in House codes.
Assembled by hand, the true craftsmanship of the house can be seen in these limited edition pieces for Spring/Summer 2021.
