Royal AM boss Andile Mpisane splurges R20k on Louis Vuitton
Royal AM chairman Andile Mpisane has made a rather extravagant statement, stating that Sundays are reserved for wearing luxury French brand Louis Vuitton. Here’s more.
Mpisane is not the shy type as he is quite an exhibitionist when it comes to his most prized possessions. However, it must be admitted that he brings new energy to the footballing space with his outgoing ways and the fact that he is also a stage performer helps to explain a little about why he is the flashy character he seems to be.
On Sunday, the AM boss was spotted wearing stunning yellow and brown LV trainers designed by the late iconic designer Virgil Abloh.

According to the French brand’s official website, the Mpisane version of the LV Trainer sneaker combines fluorescent Monogram embossed nubuck calf leather with brown Monogram denim trim.
Neon colors are said to be a key element of the Louis Vuitton Fall-Winter 2021 men’s collection runway. Perhaps more profound is that these shoes are among the latest collaborations on which legendary artistic director Virgil worked before sadly dying in November 2021.
The kicks also take inspiration from vintage basketball sneakers, and some sneakerheads will have already seen similarities to other shoes such as the Nike Dunk Low and Air Jordan 1 Low. They are worth around $1,250 (R20,386), according to hypebeast.
