Louis Vuitton Low Top “Zipper” Sneakers

Today we came across these new Louis Vuitton low top sneakers and they are probably the nicest we have seen so far from the French luxury brand. Subtle tonal embossed branding, a nice silhouette, the zipper closure – all in all a very round product. Via Cadmus.

To date we are not sure when the sneaker will release, but it should come out this Spring/Summer 2009 season.

Teal Zebra Customs



A new pair of Nike customs were posted on Nike Talk that created a mixed reaction in my mind. The designer took a simple pair of Nikes and added teal and silver paint to create a flashier shoe. I like the zebra pattern that the designer wrapped around the toes but I dislike the teal paint. I think that the silver paint would have worked with a drabber color but it stands out for the wrong reasons when placed next to teal stripes.

I think the designer needed to go all the way in one direction or another with the Teal Zebras. A bright blue or green swish applied to the Nikes would have worked well with the teal stripes. If the designer was married to the silver swoosh, cardinal red or navy blue paint would have created a uniform pattern without any element standing out. It is important to design custom shoes by keeping in mind that incompatible elements that look great on their own make for a poor final product.
