After debuting his first LV 408 sneaker at the beginning of this year, Virgil Abloh is set to elevate the silhouette and release special editions of the luxe sneaker globally. The American-born designer has crafted city-exclusive colourways for Chicago, New York, Paris, Milan, London, Dubai, Seoul, Shanghai and Tokyo.
The sneaker is crafted from smooth leather with supple suede patches. In a higher-than-usual hi-top silhouette and instantly recognisable Louis Vuitton monogramming, Virgil Abloh’s creative flair comes in the form of urban touches like an ankle strap and textured tread. With a different colour on the swing tag and laces for each different city, they come with a protective dust bags to keep them safe from scratches and scuffs.
The Seoul and New York editions are due to drop on the 25th November, and set your alarms for the 4th December if you want to cop iterations from the seven other cities.
