Levi’s has built on the unveiling of its Spring/Summer 2022 link up with The Simpsons by debuting its all-new LS1 skate-inspired sneakers in four classic colorways.

Taking notes from classic skateboarding footwear, the LS1 boasts a bulky midsole which is met by a coarse-grain for extra durability, and sat beneath an upper crafted with a sustainably-sourced cottonized hemp. Playing with aesthetics, genres and styles, the LS1 is the perfect blend of contemporary and classic, coming in both the low and the mid iterations.

Complete with the brand’s signature contrast top-stitching, metal eyelets and red tab at the hell, the LS1 arrives in colorways of “Indigo Blue”, “Versatile Black”, “Ochre Yellow” and “Bright Ecru” (the natural color of untreated cotton and hemp).

Levi’s LS1 is set to drop via the Levi’s webstore on February 21, before a global launch at various retailers on March 4.
