Kanye’s Louis Vuitton shoe design  via. hypebeast.com

not enough contrast between the colours, and is just a bit too bright. But then again, i’m a happy owner of an elitist pair of red supras so i shant continue in that vein. The sole is too big, and with the LV pattern on the side, the shoe seem suspiciously inspired by nike airs or bathing apes, take a  pick. Im hearing that the back is fitted  for those who wish  to tuck their jeans inside the shoe, but i find that unnecessary for a low top, mostly because it looks hideous. Not a bad  first design. itll do.



PARIS — Marc Jacobs and the Louis Vuitton men’s studio director Paul Helbers have some design competition this season. Kanye West, who was sitting front row at the Vuitton show, has designed a line of five LV sneakers. Only one design, above, was featured in the show — a monochromatic midtop with no frills, save for a quilted flap in the back, all the easier to tuck pants into. “The inspiration came from a jacket with a huge collar in the movie ‘Dune,’ ” West says. “Most sneakers focus on the tongue, so I wanted to do something different.” West knows whereof he speaks: he says he has no idea how many shoes he owns, but he does know that he routinely needs to send shipments off to storage. The LV-meets-Kanye kicks will be available at Louis Vuitton stores in June.

Here is a sneek peek of whats to come:
