Sneak peek at Kanye West shoes for Louis Vuitton

Helen Lee January 12, 2009 8


Kanye West is said to be due front row Paris next Thursday to watch his sneaker collection go down the runway for Louis Vuitton at Men’s Fashion Week but he’s given the world a close up peek at one of the shoes on his official blog.

“Time to crash your internet server,” West wrote. “Here’s 1 of the 6 designs I did for Louie… sampled in white.”

The Kanye West for Louis Vuitton loafer style white sneaker comes complete with laces that are finished with tassel-style detail. These aren’t the first preview of the sneakers as West has also been spotted wearing another self-designed white sneaker around which seems to feature a Velcro strap across the top of the shoe, but they are the clearest look we’ve had so far.

The collection is set to hit Louis Vuitton boutiques in June 2009 but it may not be the last collaboration West has with Louis Vuitton. The singer/fashion fan plans to move to London with a plan to take up an apprenticeships at Louis Vuitton on Bond Street and who knows what could transpire from there.

Perhaps he and Estelle could do a follow up to American Boy while he’s in her home town for a while…

Are you excited about the Kanye West for Louis Vuitton shoe collection?

    It looks interesting, but I think the sole is a bit too thick. Other than that it’s a pretty nice sneaker.
