College dropout turned crooner turned designer, Kanye West will be dropping his collaboration sneaker collection with Louis Vuitton today, July 1st, in Louis Vuitton stores around the globe. The collection comprises of three different models which ranges from the dressier Hudson Boat Shoe to the tonal Don Low-top and ATO Matstumoto-like Jasper High-top in various colorways that go from subtly white to flashy in neon pink.
Some of our favorite details on the shoes are the tasseled laces with Louis Vuitton metal hardware, which gives the shoes an antiquated dressy update; the signature Louis Vuitton monogram motifs featured on the backside of the rubber soles also gives an added flair to the shoes. The most interesting pair of the collection which stands out amongst the overwhelming number of high tops and low tops today is the Hudson Boat Shoe. The grey version is made from a mix of grey and tan suede upper with neon pink soles. The fat heel flap of the shoes come oversized and extends well over the top of the shoes to hit the wearer’s ankles. The energetic and vibrant color update reminds us of Louis Vuitton’s recent collaboration with Stephen Sprouse.
For those who are more into basic shades, these luxury kicks also come in black, white, greys and red. Check out these shoes at the Louis Vuitton store close to you.
Release Date: July 1st (Today)
