Christian Louboutin launches new sneaker - HAPPYRUI, which is inspired by the world of tennis
November 21, 2019: Welcoming the festive season with a new sneaker, Christian Louboutin’s HAPPYRUI low-top is set to spearhead the Maison’s sneaker offering for Spring/Summer 2020.
Following the immensely successful RED RUNNER which took its cues from the world of running and the AURELIEN inspired by the basketball courts, Christian Louboutin once again returns to sports to create the 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 stylish and easy to wear.
Its new metallic CL signature echoes 1970s’ varsity letters. The contrasting toe cap and singular eyelet system nod to vintage retro style. The HAPPYRUI mixes materials and textures including suede, lamé leather and a shimmering sequin body, while some versions also come with signature spike-adorned a toe cap.
