Louis Vuitton recently released a new, futuristic silhouette called “Archlight,” which has previously been sported by Jaden Smith last December 2017. Pushing the boundaries of a traditional sneaker, Louis Vuitton balances the uncanny-shaped, overarched outsole with an oversized tongue, then a low cut around the ankle for a feminine touch.
Inspired by both vintage and futuristic trends, Louis Vuitton blends both in one shoe. The unconventional, chunky silhouette uses a combination of technical fabrics and an extremely oversized sole, sporting Louis Vuitton’s statement look. Various colorways of the shoe were imagined to fit numerous styles and eras and the design encapsulate Nicolas Ghesquière’s, French fashion designer and the creative director of the house of Louis Vuitton, fondness for sci-fi.
Louis Vuitton also features their signature patent monogram canvas as one of their designs for the shoe. The bouncy rubber outsole adds an additional 2 inches to one’s height, so you can expect people to really notice you and your pair! Crafted in Italy, the pair retails for 850 EUR or $1,090 USD and is available for purchase on their website and from the LV store in Greenbelt 5.
