Louis Vuitton Launches Its First Eco-friendly Unisex Sneaker
The Charlie Sneaker, designed by Louis Vuitton and the brand’s first eco-friendly unisex shoe.
The 90 percent sustainable materials are used in the limited-edition shoes, which come in low- and high-top versions. The sneakers have a white upper made of a smooth and grainy synthetic material made from recycled polyester with a layer of Biopolioli, a corn-based plastic. Recycled polyurethane and polyester are used for the insoles and lining.
The Econyl regenerated nylon used on the back of the unisex sneakers, the tongue patch, and the LV emblem are all created from nylon waste.
