Louis Vuitton unveils a new line of fitness gear

PUBLISHED ON May 7, 2020

Luxury fashion brand Louis Vuitton is selling a fitness equipment range during the coronavirus lockdown, with some simple sports items costing upwards of £1,000.

A set of table tennis bats, named ‘Ping Pong Set James’, by the company, are on sale for £1,759 and include a designer case for the bats.

The French brand is also offering potential customers the chance to buy an LV-branded skipping rope for £536. The set is called ‘Jump Rope Christopher’, and it’s pretty expensive considering the fact you can buy skipping ropes for as little as £3 from the likes of SportsDirect and Amazon.

Pairs of 3kg dumbbells are on sale for £2,158 for people wanting to exercise using designer weights.

The description reads: “These dumbbells have a striking aesthetic and sporty appeal. They are an ideal gift for those who wish to exercise in style or elevate their home gym with exclusive Louis Vuitton details.”

For golf fans looking to update their collection, Vuitton’s ‘Andrews Golf Kit’ is available for £555.

Here is the product description: “The Andrews golf kit echoes the prestige of the world-renowned golf club at the University of St Andrews. Including three golf balls and four tees, it features a metal hook for effortless transportation and bold contrast trims.”

The set would certainly get you some attention on the golf course once the Covid-19 pandemic is over, as it offers a far different look compared to your standard golfing brands like Ping and Mizuno.

However, it’s unlikely that players like Rory McIlroy and Justin Thomas will be sporting the brand any time soon.

For people looking to get in some volleyball practice during lockdown, a Louis Vuitton monogram volleyball will set you back $2,700. That’s got to be one of the most expensive volleyballs on the market.
