Louis Vuitton introduces a unisex and eco-conscious trainer – the Charlie

UNVEILING the brand’s first unisex sneaker to their already extensive range, Louis Vuitton are racing once again to the forefront of luxury trainer innovation. Coming in two variations, low and high-tops, and available in a range of sizes from EU 34 to 47, the Charlie was designed to adapt to every individual, regardless of gender.

Made for the everyday and created using high-quality materials to ensure style and comfort are met, the French luxury brand are on to a winner.

But, if the design and adaptability didn’t already have you hooked, the Charlie makes a step forward onto the path of eco-responsibility. Challenging the benchmark of eco-conception, the trainer is made from 90% recycled and bio-sourced materials.

The sole itself accounts for half of the shoe’s weight as at least 94% of the rubber has been repurposed – a record-breaking amount that also benefits the support of the foot by shock-absorbing too. Louis Vuitton Charlie Sneaker

Composed of smooth and grained synthetic material made from recycled polyester and Biopolioli, a plastic made from corn, while the laces and tongue are made from ECONYL®, a completely recycled nylon derived from waste, the trainer has that no guilt factor.

However, the commitment to sustainability does not finish there. Going above and beyond once again, Louis Vuitton have ensured that the packaging of the sneaker is encased in a felt made from TENCEL™, a fibre that comes from FSC® wood sources, and the actual shoebox itself is made from recycled cardboard. What is there not to love?
