Christian Louboutin has launched exclusive capsule collection, a first-of-its-kind collaboration, with SportyHenri.com, the newly launched e-concept store for men devoted to sport and style. You may remember the name Sporty Henri as Mr.Louboutin partnered with the company earlier this year to support the Cuban National delegation as Official Supplier of the Celebratory Outfit in the recent Olympic Games in Rio. In consultation with the athletes themselves, they created an elegant uniform befitting the glorious celebratory moments of their Olympic journey, created solely for use of the Cuban National delegation to celebrate their participation which were not sold.
Luckily for you, their second partnership features items that are for sale. Four limited edition styles, each based on beloved and highly collectible sneaker silhouettes in his men’s collection including a classic high top in the SH Bip Bip Flat and low rise SH Louis Junior. The trainers leverage the Sporty Henri brand’s clean colour palette of white, cobalt blue and black, as well as the distinctive logo – a playful and elegant profile inspired by founder and former French professional handball player Henri Tai. SH One Flat and SH Blue Flat feature Maison regular spike detailing whilst all the designs are finished with the signature Christian Louboutin red sole, here in relaxed rubber. Christian has been producing some of the coolest menswear shoes for awhile now, and he shows no signs of slowing down. It’s refreshing to see a designer devote just as much effort to his menswear products as his womens. The notion I spoke of is almost unheard of. If you’re into these sneakers you need to hurry up, and buy because the limited edition sneakers were produced in a small number 0f 600 pairs worldwide. In the US they will be available exclusively at Christian Louboutin Men’s Boutiques in New York and Los Angeles ranging from $895 -$1195. Visit http://sportyhenri.com/eu_en/
