Although not an equal replacement, the fashion house’s newest trainer may suffice for those who couldn’t cop a pair of Virgil Abloh’s Louis Vuitton x Nike Air Force 1.

Designed by the late menswear artistic director Virgil Abloh, Louis Vuitton’s newest LV Trainer is crafted from 90% recycled and bio-sourced materials. To celebrate the luxury fashion brand’s sustainable endeavors, a new logo has been emblazoned throughout the pair and arrives in three colorway options: green, red, and black.

For the upper, the French fashion house used recycled polyester and corn biodegradable plastic materials, the former also making up the tongue. Recycled cotton has been used for the lining while 100% recycled polyurethane has been used for the insole. Lastly, 94% of the outsole is made of recycled polyurethane, while the laces are made from waste plastic.

Louis Vuitton’s sustainable efforts are just seen on the LV Trainer. The product’s packaging is made from 10% recycled cardboard, while inside unprocessed kraft paper is used. Additionally, vegetable ink is used for the logo found inside. Overall, the box’s materials have been reduced by 70 percent, the brand stated in a press release.

Louis Vuitton’s sustainable LV Trainer will release this September via Louis Vuitton’s website and in stores. Keep it locked to our Sneaker Release Dates Calendar for updates.
