Louis Vuitton Drops Sneaker Exclusive in Gangnam-gu, Seoul
is dropping a Frank Gehry and Peter Marino-designed flagship in Gangnam-gu Seoul, Korea this month. One of the items included will be a new colorway of the LV 408 Trainer.
The new sneaker comes in black and grey, with hits of white on the throat, midsole, and piping. Light grey suede runs around the toebox, and mini panels on the bottom lace cage get VL branding. Other details include contrasting red laces, along with a tonal spot on the outsole, and a red strap with Louis Vuitton’s classic luggage tag comes with each pair. Made in Italy, these sneakers require six hours of stitching, and consist of 106 individual components.
The Seoul-exclusive LV 408 Trainer will release on October 31, on Louis Vuitton Seoul’s opening day.
