The Louis Vuitton New Runner is the brand’s first fully-knitted sneaker. It comes in Olive, Orange, and Black colorways.

The new silhouette comes with a knitted upper, leather accents on the heels and elastic detailing. It also features the brand’s iconic “Volez, Voguez, Voyagez” triple V motif on the tongue.

The sneakers also come with “hand-painted” activewear soles. According to Sneaker Bar Detroit, each pair of sneakers takes up to “three hours to construct”.

Release information and pricing have yet to be confirmed, but they are expected to hit the brand’s Sneaker Bar Detroit soon.
