Louis Vuitton Just Released Its First Vegan Sneaker Line

The luxury fashion brand is now selling eco-conscious sneakers made from corn!

Louis Vuitton just released its first vegan sneaker line. The luxury fashion brand’s new Charlie sneaker features a unisex design that’s made from 90% recycled and bio-sourced materials, such as 94% recycled rubber in the soles, Econyl in the patch on the tongue of the shoes, and laces made entirely from recycled fibers.

Louis Vuitton’s New Vegan Charlie Sneakers

Louis Vuitton’s new vegan Charlie sneakers come in a single colorway—white with a black and grey accent—and are now available in both low- and high-top styles. The sneakers also feature Biopolioli, a corn-based plastic which can be found in the uppers of the shoes.

The low-tops are priced at $1,080 while the high-tops retail for $1,130. Both styles come in a box that’s made from completely recycled cardboard, which also becomes a bag with a handle.

Sneakers Made from Leather Alternatives

As luxury fashion brands continue to innovate toward a more sustainable industry, many companies are beginning to launch sneakers made from leather alternatives. Earlier this year, Gucci released its first vegan leather sneaker line made from Demetra, a leather alternative that’s composed of 77% plant-based raw materials such as wood pulp and viscose.

Materials such as Piñatex—a leather alternative made from pineapple plant fibers—and Mylo—mushroom mycelium leather—have also begun to make their way into the industry, with brands like Chanel, Hugo Boss, and Alexander McQueen using the materials to make hats, shoes, and more.

In addition, Balenciaga joined the fashion world’s sustainability movement with the debut of their leather-free Zen Sneakers last year.

The Charlie sneakers are now available in Louis Vuitton stores across the globe, and can also be ordered online at LouisVuitton.com.
