Louis Vuitton just launched its new version of the LV Trainer, allegedly it is the sustainable take on the shoe; here’s what we know about the collection.

August 26th, 2022: a new version of the LV Trainer that is focused on sustainability is being released by Louis Vuitton. The silhouette is covered in the Maison’s sustainable development insignia and is made up of 90% recycled and biodegradable materials. The entire shoe was created by the late Virgil Abloh, LV’s former artistic director for menswear and the main reason why the French maison is the N^1 brand when it comes to luxury streetwear.

Here’s what we know…

94% of the LV Trainer’s outsole, which comes in green, red, and black hues, is made of recycled polyurethane, increasing its lightness and comfort. The insole is made of 100% recycled polyurethane, while the lining is made of recycled cotton. The upper is made of recycled polyester and corn-based biodegradable plastic, and the tongue is made of recycled polyester. The shoe laces, made from scrap plastic, complete the design.

The packaging for the product has been manufactured from 10% recyclable cardboard as part of its environmental design. The use of the full box’s materials has been lowered by 70% by eliminating the environmental problems associated with the transportation and storage of sneakers. The shoebox’s interior is lined with unprocessed kraft paper, and vegetable ink was used to produce the engraved emblem that welcomes customers.
