Louis Vuitton Archlight: Keeping up with the ugly sneakers trend in the most fashionable way

The Archlight is Louis Vuitton's answer to Balenciaga's Triple S and Gucci's Rhyton Leather. Launched in 2018, this is the brand's entry to the dad sneaker craze, the trend that accepted chunky footwear as the norm.

Although this model is designed for women, several men were seen rocking this on the lifestyle fashion, just like Jaden Smith. And to reach a wider audience, LV offers this in an array of color combinations to give many options to go for.

The unconventional features of LV Archlight trainers

This sneaker features an unorthodox blending of vintage basketball shoe style and futuristic look with remarkable details:

  • This pair has an exaggerated wavy-shaped arch on the midfoot to give this pair a noticeable illusion.
  • Its oversized and high tongue adds style and shape.
  • It has an under the ankle cut profile for a delicate, more feminine flair.
  • To befit the exaggerated look, LV used double laces.
