Louis Vuitton looks to continue its partnership with the NBA with a new footwear collaboration. This week we get an initial glimpse at the rumored upcoming release, courtesy of multimedia company, Saint.
The two photos show a wheat-colored ankle boot, reminiscent of Louis Vuitton’s Creeper Boot. It appears to be crafted from suede, featuring gold foil branding, gold eyelets, and gold monogram flowers on the midsole towards the heel. The NBA’s logo is stamped on the tongue, while similar co-branding is featured on the insole.
Louis Vuitton announced a multiyear partnership with the NBA at the beginning of 2020, of which Virgil Abloh has been tapped to design co-branded apparel and accessories collections. First, we saw a luxe travel case for the league’s Larry O’Brien Trophy, and now it appears a footwear collab is on the horizon.
Louis Vuitton has yet to confirm any details surrounding the NBA-branded boot, so be sure to check back with us for further details.
