Louis Vuitton to Auction Louis Vuitton I (RED) LV Trainer Prototype at Sotheby’s
In case you missed it, 2021 marks (RED)’s 15th anniversary year! To mark this special occasion, (RED) partner Louis Vuitton has announced the auctioning of the Louis Vuitton I (RED) LV Trainer Prototype at Sotheby’s Auction House to support (RED)’s fight against pandemics.
Personally signed by Men’s Artistic Director Virgil Abloh, the one-of-a-kind sneaker features a bright red side grid, later adjusted to white for the actual production launch. As is standard for Louis Vuitton prototype shoes, the sneaker is men’s size 9 UK.
The unique pair will be offered in a single-lot, online-only auction on Sothebys.com beginning today, February 22nd, through Thursday, March 4th. Full proceeds from the sale will be donated to support the Global Fund’s life-saving work in the fight against AIDS and COVID-19.
Want to check out the shoes in person? The pair will be on view by appointment in Sotheby’s New York galleries.
