Louis Vuitton’s run away pulse

The trainer for committed sneaker snobs

By Nick Scott 11/11/2018

With the lines between formal and casualwear becoming more blurred by the season, it’s an inevitable (and most welcome) development that the major houses are now applying their artisanal know-how to making trainers: after all, the days when a Savile Row suit could only be paired with a traditional pair of Oxfords, brogues or monkstraps are a speck in the rear-view mirror.

Among Robb Report’s current favourites is Louis Vuitton’s Run Away Pulse trainer. And, for our money the top model for the urbane practitioner of the smart-casual zeitgeist is the one pictured here ($1650), which sees luxurious python merged with a high-impact sports trainer. First showcased at the brand’s Autumn-Winter 2018-19 Men’s Show, it has hiking boot-style laces and eyelets and an augmented rubber outsole with flakes.

The LV Circle signature on the tongue provides a neat final flourish.
