Following the immensely successful Red Runner which took its cues from the world of running and the Aurelien inspired by the basketball courts, French fashion designer Christian Louboutin recently launched a new sneaker collection – Happyrui.
This season, the designer pays tribute to the iconic tennis shoe that made fashion history both on and off the courts in the 70s. Boasting a new specially developed rubber platform outsole and a singular upper, the Happyrui low-top sneaker is as stylish as it is easy to wear.
From its new metallic CL signature that echoes 70s varsity letters to its contrasting toe cap and singular eyelet system, every detail on this low-top sneaker nods to vintage retro style. True to Maison’s design, codes, the HAPPYRUI mixes materials and textures including suede, lamé leather and a shimmering sequin body, whilst some versions also come with signature spike-adorned a toe cap.
