A look back over the history of Louis Vuitton and the birth of a futuristic trainer.
The House of Louis Vuitton came into being in 1854 and was initially devoted to designing luggage. In fact, when the brand started out, baggage represented its specialist domain, alongside unprecedented developments in the world of trunks and travel in general. Louis Vuitton, however, did not rest on its laurels following its initial success. The label has managed to develop over the years, adapting to demand and to current trends. That was the intention behind these women's trainers that have won over a whole new, younger target audience.

Vuitton launched this pair of trainers to reach a new social-media-savvy audience on the lookout for the latest trends. Indeed, for a long time, trainers remained within the confines of sports but they are now coming ever closer to the haute-couture catwalk. Other legendary designers like Balenciaga and Chanel have also revisited trainers, adding the codes their own brands held dear. Louis Vuitton repeated the same exploit by elevating trainers to the ranks of trendy haute couture fashion accessories. Trainers as reinvented by Louis Vuitton are resolutely modern, futuristic even. They come in low-top and high-top, in canvas and in leather, plain or with the brand's monogram. Whichever version you choose, it is sure to make an impression.

Here is a quick reminder of some Louis Vuitton trainers that have made the most lasting impression on the world of fashion and trends:
