The Most Wanted Women’s Louis Vuitton Sneakers

Set on a rubber sole, this style comes in a choice of matt rubber, leather, or canvas and mesh.
Louis Vuitton Run Away Sneakers
Louis Vuitton is constantly reworking classic designs, and the running shoe-inspired ‘Run Away’ is a case in point. This latest pair is adorned with a signature oversized LV Circle, and is set on a technical rubber outsole. A hidden fusbet adds height, and an eye-catching gold-tone metal stabilizer adds the finishing touch to these Italian-made sneakers.
The Louis Vuitton Sneakers Sizing Guide
Louis Vuitton’s women’s sneakers use Italian sizing, and are also available in half sizes. You can use the below chart to find you corresponding UK size, or match the measurement of the length of your foot in centimetres with Louis Vuitton’s sizing.
For example, if you usually wear a women’s UK 5 or your foot length is 24.4cm, then you should buy your Louis Vuitton sneakers in a size 38.

How to measure
The brand recommends measure your foot length to find you correct shoe size, and following the guidelines below.
• Measure your foot when wearing the same socks or tights you would normally wear with the sneakers you want to buy.
• Stand on a flat surface, with your heel against the wall, and measure from the base of your heel to the tip of your longest toe. You will need to ensure your heel is kept pressed against the wall until you’ve finished measuring.
• As some right and left feet can differ in size, we would advise measuring both feet and using your longest foot as your benchmark.
