Rumours of a NBA x Louis Vuitton collaboration have been making rounds for quite some time, but now, we're getting up close with the first NBA x Louis Vuitton sneaker, and it's giving us some serious Timberland vibes. Unveiled by @retroshoparis via Instagram, here's everything that you need to know.
An amalgamation between the traditional work boot and the Parisian fashion house's signature creeper, the NBA x LV shoe is a true culmination of trends. Crafted from a light brown suede construction, metallic gold accents descend upon the eyelets, "Vuitton" badge, and monogram flowers at the heel.
The National Basketball Association's iconic silhouette logo is finely debossed onto the tongue, while co-branded detailing arrives along the insole, decorated with luxurious gold foil. To round it all off, a heavy duty gum rubber tread gives the shoe a ready and rugged design.
Set to release alongside a whole slew of premium accessories including carrying options, the NBA x Louis Vuitton Sneaker still doesn't have a release date just yet, but with the Lakers' victory against Miami Heat last night, we sure hope that it's soon. Let us know what you think of this shoe, and in other unexpected collaboration news, a The North Face x Gucci collection is in the works!
