Louis Vuitton‘s Archlight sneaker is the new kid on the chunky footwear block, and it was only a matter of time that replica models would start rolling in. Which now brings us to these “Casual Sports Shoes” from HEJ/PROJECT — a sneaker that offers the same brazen silhouette as its luxury counterpart for a fraction of the price: $70 USD.
Offered in all-white and blue color options, this lookalike model features an extended sock-like collar, a harness-like lace support system, a mix of synthetic and mesh materials, and the recognizable arched sole unit with the protruding heel. The main difference is the simplified upper paneling and, of course, the textile quality.
Let us know if you think this silhouette would have been popular without the luxury label and whether or not you’d cop the affordable version.
