Louis Vuitton, men's shoes embodying vintage elegance.
Recognisable by its famous logo, fashion house Louis Vuitton is (an international reference in the universe of fashion. As well as its lines of monogrammed canvas bags and luggage, the brand owes its reputation to its collections of ready-to-wear and shoes. Patent leather lace-ups, crocodile skin moccasins and streetwear trainers, men's shoes by Louis Vuitton are true must-haves.
When leathermaking becomes an art form.
Louis Vuitton, luxury Parisian leather goods brand, cannot be dissociated from its world-famous coated canvas, the "LV Monogram". Enhanced with a chequered brown and beige motif in which the initials of the founder of the fashion house interlock, it adorns the label's most sought-after models. Launched in 1854 by the trunkmaker Louis Vuitton, the eponymous brand rapidly acquired the status of an icon. It is aimed at men and women looking for sophisticated pieces with vintage allure. Leather handbags, soft canvas luggage and elaborately-finished clothes, Louis Vuitton embodies the very notion of French luxury. Its collections also include many other emblematic creations, including Louis Vuitton shoes, sunglasses and jewellery.
After the merger with Moët & Chandon champagnes and Hennessy cognacs to form the LVMH group in 1987, the former luggage retailer became a world leader in luxury goods. Under the impetus of Marc Jacobs, creative director behind its collections for women from 1997 to 2013, then Nicolas Ghesquière, Louis Vuitton was diversified and modernised. The first did not shy away from revamping the famous monogrammed canvas using vibrant colours, to produce collections of ready-to-wear, shoes and accessories with bold lines. As for the French designer, he chose to revisit the Speedy bag and the Petite Malle, both legacy pieces, to design his first it-bags for Louis Vuitton. On the menswear side, taking over from Kim Jones, who was responsible for the acclaimed collaboration with Supreme, Virgil Abloh from the Off-White brand took over the helm of Louis Vuitton collections for men in March 2018.
Distinguished shoes for men of distinction.
Over the years, Louis Vuitton has created a comprehensive line of men's shoes. The couture house ceaselessly reinvents its classic models, always managing to retain a characteristically retro feel. As well as its must-have monogrammed canvas, the brand is fond of using exotic leather when designing its collections, in the form of crocodile, alligator and python skin. Its limitless creative juices can also be seen in its rock 'n' roll look and sportswear models, on which we see chic prints, inspired by gingham, tartan, houndstooth and Prince of Wales check motifs. Timeless lace-ups, high-top ankle boots, preppy moccasins and refined sneakers, Louis Vuitton men's shoes are an ingenious blend of modern and traditional.
In 160 years, the luxury fashion house has become synonymous with prestige, in France and abroad. Visionary, it has successfully pushed classic boundaries to update its image. Shoe collections by Louis Vuitton, constantly subject to rethinking, benefit from age-old know-how and the brand's acute eye for detail. Some of the legendary models for men worthy of a mention are:
