Apart from investment-worthy bags and clothes, Louis Vuitton has created a fine array of luxurious sneakers for men and women like Run Away, Rivoli, Luxembourg but nothing as radical as the Archlight. Introduced in the brand’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection by Nicolas Ghesquière, the Archlight sneakers are still one of the most popular designer kicks. The shoe is defined by a futuristic allure—rightly described by the Maison as sneakers from another world.
The Archlight is the perfect entry by Louis Vuitton into the trend of chunky sneakers. Influenced by the basketball shoes from the 90s, the shoe’s design is carried by a wave-like outsole that elevates the wearer’s height and offers a slight bounce in every step. Keeping the element of ‘extra’ across other parts, the tongue is given an exaggerated raise and the collar is trimmed to a low curve before forming the extended counter.
It’s not a minimally aesthetic design nor is it a super-chunky shoe with a heavily layered upper. Instead, LV’s Archlight is a sleek, lightweight sneaker with maximal appeal—just enough to make a striking fashion statement on or off the streets.
Our pick of the LV sneakers stands out because of its colors! This version is adorned with vividly-hued brush strokes over speckled leather panels. Fashioned with laced-up vamps, round toes, and pull-tabs on the counters, the heavy-duty-looking kicks are light and super comfortable. This pair can be easily styled with feminine dresses or simple denim jeans and tees.
The sneakers come in an assortment of technical fabrics, leather, canvas, and mesh in diverse combinations of colors that will leave you spoilt for choices. The aesthetic that they exhibit is energetic with a speck of retro.
