Serving as Virgil Abloh‘s first sneaker for Louis Vuitton, the LV 408 Trainer has stood out as a notable piece in the designer’s inaugural collection for the fashion house.

Looking to highlight the shoe, LV recently launched a campaign which takes the sneaker to the hardwood, investigating its unique basketball inspiration. Made in Italy, each shoe reportedly takes six hours of stitching and is made of 106 components, 20 pieces just to make the sole itself. Undeniably marked with quality, LV408 Trainer exudes an aesthetic associated with retro sportswear and informed by the luxury of LV.

Check out the campaign and head over to louisvuitton.com to pick up a pair now.
