It’s been less than a couple of months since the French company introduced its “pillow boots” on the runway but the fashion world is already enthralled with them. One reason for that is certainly that they are just as comfortable as their catchy name suggests. The boots, that are now available for purchase on Louis Vuitton’s website, have already been spotted on a number of notable personalities including new mom actress Sophie Turner.

The shoes have a quilted nylon upper and hit just above the ankles but the height can easily be adjusted thanks to the drawstring toggles that allow you to wear them with their tops folded over. The boots also feature sock-like monogrammed lining for maximum comfort.
