There’s an unexpected footwear collaboration in the works between the NBA and Louis Vuitton, expected in the upcoming months.
Without any further updates on the release of this collaboration, fans have discovered leaked images of a boot collection coming from the iconic brands. This wheat-colored ankle boot features a light-brown suede color with an NBA logo, gold foil branding, gold eyelets, and gold monogram flowers. The logos are also brightly featured on the insole to finish off the full look.
The NBA x Louis Vuitton boot isn’t the only exciting part of the surprise drop. If you aren’t too particular about the boot, make sure to check out the duffel bags also dropping as part of the collection. It looks like the duffel bags will be available in both leather dark brown and grey.
According to the teasers, there’s plenty to look forward to from the overall look to the comfort and fashion statements made by the collection. Who knows, it may just be found everywhere in 2021!

The Los Angeles Lakers dominated the NBA Championship game over the Miami Heat last night (Oct. 11), marking their 17th NBA title. This is LeBron James’ fourth MVP award as he lead his team with a 93-106 win over the Miami Heat in game 6 of the NBA Finals. To celebrate the win, Louis Vuitton revealed its first men’s wear collection designed by Virgil Abloh titled Louis Vuitton x NBA Capsule Collection.
The debut of the NBA x Louis Vuitton boot and duffel bag collection was originally going to drop before the start of the 2020-21 NBA regular season but due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the fashion and sports industries have been greatly affected. A release date hasn’t been confirmed as of the date of this publication.
What do you think of this new drop? Would you get the NBA x Louis Vuitton boot or the duffel bag for yourself?
