First Look at Virgil Abloh’s Louis Vuitton Sneaker

Of all the projects Virgil Abloh is supporting and collaborating with and involved in…the world has waited for his Louis Vuitton venture since being named the brand’s Artistic Director of Menswear in March. Growing up in the shadow of Chicago, Abloh has spoken numerous times on Michael Jordan’s influence and hold he had on the city especially in the 1980s and 1990s…and appears to channel the spirit of the Air Jordan 1 and Air Jordan 3 in his design of the unnamed Louis Vuitton sneaker.

Fueled with a basketball high build…the sneaker features a strap across the top of the tongue and an Air Jordan 1-like outsole with¬†VUITTON¬†spelled out across it. We’ll continue to update you on the release details as they come forth.
