Louis Vuitton's New Charlie Sneaker Is Eco-Friendly

Available in a low- and high-top version.

Louis Vuitton has created a brand new sneaker called Charlie. The upcoming unisex silhouette arrives in a low- and high-top version dressed in the same white colorway.

As part of its sustainability efforts, the fashion house has produced the shoes with 90 percent recycled and bio-sourced materials. The upper is made out of smooth and grained synthetic fabric composed of recycled polyester and a layer of corn-based plastic called Biopolioli. Meanwhile, the sole is crafted from 94 percent recycled rubber and the laces are made with ECONYL, a 100 percent recycled nylon. Finally, the inside sole and lining boast recycled polyurethane and recycled polyester.

Both iterations are protected with a felt made with TENCEL (branded fibers sourced from renewable wood) and are packaged in a recycled cardboard box. Take a closer look at the pairs above.

Ranging from sizes 34 to 47 EU, the Charlie will be available on November 12 via Louis Vuitton’s website.
