Toosday Shoesday: Louis Vuitton's Rain Capsule

Toosday Shoesday: Louis Vuitton’s Rain Capsule

Nicolas Ghesquière has created a Rain Capsule of Louis Vuitton‘s most popular shoe styles … well, 3 of them to be exact. Wait, what?  Yep, what he’s done is he basically made these women’s shoe models waterproof so you can still look chic without having to worry about ruining your shoes in the rain – and we know there’s plenty of that here in KL!

Louis Vuitton Rainproof Archlight Sneaker Boot Black

The ever-popular Archlight sneaker has morphed into a sneaker boot entirely in either black or khaki matte rubber, complete with the signature wave-shaped outsole. You’d also notice the signature LV circle logo on the back of the outsole, as well as the iconic flowers from its Monogram Canvas where each loop of the laces are, as well on the back loop, and zipper pull for that distinctive Vuitton vibe.

For an edgier vibe, the Rhapsody ankle boot comes with a pointed toe, block heel and harness-esque design detail. It made its debut in Vuitton’s Fall/Winter 2019 runway collection, and for this Rain Capsule version, it comes in glossy waterproof rubber with elastic sides, and LV logo-engraved studs. Here, you’d also find the monogram canvas loop on the back.

Louis Vuitton Silhouette Pink Ankle Rain Boot

If you want to look elegant and polished the iconic Silhouette ankle boot (my fave out of the 3) is the way to go. To make it rain- and thunderstorm- friendly, the boot has been reinterpreted to a T, with everything, including its unique flower-shaped heel, in glossy waterproof rubber. The side zipper and back also sports the iconic flower from the monogram canvas. Available in black, pink, or white.

I have to say kudos to Ghesquière on transforming these silhouettes into stylish rain boots! Sure, there’s Hunter boots, and those with cute and quirky prints, but at the end of the day, they’re still wellies. There really isn’t anything out there in the luxury market like these. Bravo, for giving us such chic options, so that we can always, ALWAYS, put our best foot forward (pun intended)!
