We got our first look at them during the Louis Vuitton S/S 18 show, then on actress Millie Bobby Brown, and come February 23, they'll probably be in everyone's shoe closet. Any guesses what we're referring to? We're talking about none other than the French fashion house's statement Archlight sneakers—a futuristic, chunky trainer that is as relevant as ever in today's footwear market, where the so-called "ugly" trend is reigning supreme.
If you're like us and you can't wait to add another pair of cool kicks to your collection, we've got some good news. While the sneaker won't officially be released for another two weeks, there's a way you can get your hands on the LV Archlight before everyone else—so listen up!
If you're in New York City, head to the just-opened Louis Vuitton pop-up shop in SoHo at 122 Greene Street, where you'll be able to shop the trainers firsthand. A handful of other LV shops will also participate in the pre-launch of the sneaker, but what makes the NYC one so special is that it's the only shop worldwide dedicated entirely to the Archlight shoe and you'll have access to an exclusive all-black version, which retails (like the rest of the styles) for around $1090. Sounds pretty cool, no? Now, scroll down for a first look at the Archlight sneakers.
