Who says sneakers have to be casual wear? French fashion house Louis Vuitton has launched its first full-knit luxe sneakers: the Vuitton New Runner (V.N.R), taking athleisure to the next level.

The sneakers combine an elegant design with modern functionality and technical innovation.

Available in three colours – olive, black and orange – the trainers feature elastic knit material, leather detailing, and the iconic “Volez, Voguez, Voyagez” triple V motif on the tongue, which is also hand-painted on the sole.

The sneakers are now available at select Louis Vuitton stores worldwide and online.
