A Closer Look At Louis Vuitton’s Spring 2017 Men’s Shoes

Louis Vuitton is embarking on a safari for spring ’17. Designer Kim Jones took on the much-pursued theme for his latest men’s collection but made it fresh with a slight punk attitude via clashing tartans and spray-paint-effect knitwear.

The shoes were certainly fit for an adventure-seeker. Outdoorsy sandals — a trend that’s been dominating the runways at Prada, MSGM and Versace — were strappy and offered in black, beige or gray. Creepers and chunky loafers were finished in ponyhair zebra prints, or a woven plaid that matched the clothes.

Compared to the label’s futuristic-leaning womenswear collections by Nicolas Ghesquière, the collection here had more of a retro sensibility — with a dash of inspiration from Yves Saint Laurent’s iconic safari jackets, we’re sure. In a men’s market where accessories are often pushed to the backside, Jones offered a potent collection of bags and shoes (though the khaki trenches weren’t bad, either).
