The Latest Louis Vuitton Sneaker is Made of Recycled Materials

Featuring a recycling LV graphic by Virgil Abloh.

Thanks largely to the contributions of Virgil Abloh, Louis Vuitton has cemented itself as a premiere destination for luxury sneakers. Before streetwear and high fashion merged, very few houses made silhouettes that were accepted by the masses. Cut to present day and nearly every big name brand has an expanded sneaker range, collaborations and a streetwear cosign.

Louis Vuitton takes its footwear range a step further by reimagining the LV Trainer with 90% recycled materials. Playing on the sustainable theme, the shoe’s upper is covered in a reinterpreted LV logo inspired by the classic recycling graphic. This unique piece of artwork was designed by Abloh to denote Louis Vuitton’s sustainable offerings.

The lightweight sneaker is crafted with a 94% recycled polyurethane, while recycled cotton makes up the lining. The shoe’s insoles are made of 100% recycled polyurethane and waste plastic makes up the shoe’s laces. Even the packaging has been redesigned with 70% less materials overall and 10% recycled cardboard.

Take a closer look at the sneaker in the gallery above and stay tuned for a September release via Louis Vuitton‘s webstore and boutiques.
