Luxury shoe drops continue to draw a lot of interest from collectors and fashionistas alike, even if they are style challenged. The Louis Vuitton New Runner Sneaker might be the next big item on the hypebeast hot list.

As their first all-knit release, the VNR features a knit construction throughout the upper all framed over a running shoe silhouette. Of course, it boasts some luxurious points of difference that speak to the house’s identity.

LV campaign branding “Volez, Voguez, Voyagez” (“Sail, Fly, Travel) is featured on the tongue and hand-painted sole.

A careful attention was paid to the details behind this selection as it takes three hours to construct each pair. Additionally, the knit build out only incorporates three threads making these super light at a 60 gram weigh in.

The Louis Vuitton New Runner Sneaker will be available in three different colors including an olive green, black and orange. No word on pricing but expect to pay some rent money for these. You view more photos on the flip.
