so no way are those originally manufactured by LV, or by Nike, right?
i heard some people saying LV worked with Nike around 2001.
anyone has any idea? [/b][/quote]
nope, i know those.
these are ALL FAKE.. i repeat: ALL FAKE
all they need is a bit of fabric and custom make them to sell as designer trainers
Its showing what the people who make these Nike Gucci Air force one do to shoes and haute couture designers. All this is purely to make a profit, ask yourself, is it art, is it beautiful. Is it fashion. Maybe, maybe not, just ask yourselves this.

No. I'm a big sneaker collector and I puke at all the lv/gucci/etc shoes people made. They never did a partnership with big brands except Coach, but they never used the coach name, they only made several shoes using coach leather. Other companies they teamed up with are stussy, other than that, they generally work with urban artists.
It's sad seeing these kids starving themselves and selling crack to buy the home-sewn (sometimes glued!) LV/Gucci air force ones. I'm glad to say the fad has passed though.
