Louis Vuitton is getting into the 3D printed footwear space with its new slip-on sneaker pictured here. The company partnered with Zellerfeld to create a slip-on model dubbed the LV Cobra. This latest collaboration proves once again that 3D printing may not change the entire footwear industry in the short term but it can offer the ability to create “Crocs-like” products that can be customized and styled to a degree that they can appeal to some of the world’s top fashion designers.

The French luxury fashion house debuted its new 3D printed shoe, on the runway for Pharrell Williams’ 2024 LV men’s pre-fall show at Hong Kong’s waterfront Avenue of Stars. The silhouette is in the same vein as some of the recent Zellerfeld collaborations (including one with the fashion brand Moncler), specifically with its similar design language with the slip-on upper, but the Louis Vuitton branding and its signature LV Monogram flower logo help distinguish this pair from the rest.

The sneaker features texture printing that blends seamlessly with soft mesh and smooth panels throughout. Thus far, the LV Cobra has been revealed in two tonal colorways, including black and white makeup.

Mathias Patillon, who heads up Louis Vuitton’s footwear design, posted an image of the Cobra on Instagram and tagged 3D printing sneaker company Zellerfeld, suggesting that the two brands produced the shoe in partnership. There are no release details available for the LV Cobra sneaker at the moment, but we’ll keep you updated with new details as they’re announced by the brand.
