Nine high-tops. Mid-top, low-top limited editions of Louis Vuitton and Nike Air Force 1 sneakers by the late Virgil Abloh are dropping today for purchase!
The most awaited sneakers of the year are finally here- Yes, the LV X Nike sneakers are dropping on the 19th of July in the online and offline LV stores! First revealed at Louis Vuitton’s Spring/Summer 2022 menswear show, the sneakers symbolize Virgil Abloh’s merging of “high” luxury and “low” culture that everyone can afford.
The French luxury house announced the release of the very first batch of the Louis Vuitton X Nike Air Force 1 Sneakers by Virgil Abloh on their website for public purchase. In May, Louis Vuitton held an exhibition to showcase the Louis Vuitton and Nike Air Force 1 by Virgil Abloh collection at the Greenpoint Terminal Warehouse in Brooklyn. And in early June, pre-orders for the AF1 were opened for selected Louis Vuitton clients.
The exhibition featured 47 iterations of the sneakers, including the nine limited editions that are dropping. A total of 21 colorways of the shoe are deemed to hit the retail stores; however, there’s no word on the remaining 12 styles.
The collaborative sneakers will be available in nine different colorways, with the Air Force 1 Low offered in seven and the Air Force 1 Mid in two iterations. Engraved with the iconic Louis Vuitton monogram, furnished in Damier-checked leather, and adorned with the typical Nike “AIR” across the midsole, the reconstructed sneaker is an object of sheer luxury.
On the landing page of Louis Vuitton’s website, the process of how the launch will be carried out is broken down. At 12 p.m. on the 19th of July, the fans who are looking to buy the shoe will be placed in a virtual waiting room, and every minute, it will allow random shoppers the opportunity to buy one of the nine pairs.
The selected shoppers will have precisely 10 minutes to add one of their desired styles to the cart and checkout. The sneaker will only be reserved once an email is received after completing the payment step. The price range starts from $2,750 and $3,450 depending on the low-tops and high-tops.
You can shop the collection from the Louis Vuitton web store.
