In 2018, Louis Vuitton stirred up the sneaker community with the release of the LV Archlight, a true revolution in athletic footwear. Recently, the next-generation version, LV Archlight 2.0, has returned with groundbreaking features.
The 2023 edition of this iconic pair represents another innovative leap from Louis Vuitton, crafted from special materials like raffia fibers and guipure lace. The outsole undergoes experimentation with various rubber compositions, introducing two distinct designs, one streamlined and the other chunky and contemporary. Inheriting the legacy of the French fashion house, this new collection connects the stories and moments from its predecessor sneakers, shaping them into adventurous forms such as high-top and desert boot-inspired designs or classic yet youthful leather silhouettes. LV Archlight 2.0 can be seen as conquering various settings, challenges, and environments, showcasing exceptional dynamism, pioneering spirit, and superior versatility.
Designed for the dynamic, individualistic Generation Z, LV Archlight 2.0 draws inspiration from various distinct “subcultures.” It embraces cottagecore aesthetics, evoking romantic sensations with earthy tones and delicate netted details, ideal for countryside strolls. It takes cues from Y2K color waves and ventures into innovative color combinations or delves into the mysterious gothic realm with its original black hue.
Accompanying this collection are Gen Z stars who have garnered followers from Europe to Asia across various fields: accomplished actress Chloë Grace Moretz, the “prince” of Will Smith – actor and musician Jaden Smith, and footballer Sam Li.
