Louis Vuitton 'Upside Down'



It all started one night when I was browsing through the latest Fall Winter 2012 collection on Louis Vuitton's website. I liked this one particular pair - Upside Down high-cut sneakers - but apparently it was not sold here in Malaysia.

In Asia, it was only available in Japan, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Singapore. 

So, to Singapore I made my way. It was sometime in the first week of August.

Since we were well in our fasting month of Ramadan, there was nothing else for us to do but to made our way right to The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands right after we landed in Changi.

This baby is a patchwork of white, black and blue (is that blue?) perforated leather, logo-embossed suede and dark blue canvas trimming with matching shoe laces. The rubber sole is white with LV logo on the lateral side. Simply stunning. 

If you're willing to fork out some money for this pair, by all means go ahead. Not only it is aesthetically-pleasing, but comfortable too. 

Among all of my footwear, this comes at the top where price-tag is concerned. I better take a good care of it for many, many years to come. 

So far, the feedback I have received from people all around has been positive. I love them too. What do you think of this pair?

Thanks to Louis Vuitton Island Maison, Singapore sales associate Miss Zainab for the warm and professional service.
