Louis Vuitton has stayed inside our closets for decades, it’s their time to transform our lives outdoors, and by the looks of it, there’s no stopping them. The French luxury brand is clearly aiming to tap the world of sports and outdoors with exclusive offerings like a Louis Vuitton outdoor tent, skimboards, the uber-cool Louis Vuitton bike, and making the biggest splash of all is “A View” sneaker. Louis Vuitton is making a foray into the world of skating with this brand new skate sneaker appropriate for grinding, gliding, sliding, switching, and thrashing, all while looking smashing! A View is part of the Spring 2021 men’s pre-collection. It is the result of two stalwarts- professional skater Lucien Clarke, and Virgil Abloh, Artistic Director of Louis Vuitton men’s collections coming together to style the world of skating. One look at the image, and you know the first-of-its-kind skate sneaker is a winner that looks eye-catching in technical textile and calf leather material. The aspects that completely stand out are the reflective details throughout the upper. The sole cushioning is made of technical foam and polyurethane. Clarke’s name is scrawled down near the sole, next to LV’s iconic floral and monogram symbols stamped into the midsoles.
The shoes come in three color combinations: black and orange, white and orange, and a blue version, and I am currently torn between the blue and the black-orange variants. As far is price is concerned, we have no news, except that this super cool dubutant wont come cheap.
