LV shoes are contract manufactured, for the most part they are considered substantially lower price/quality than other manufacturers with similar price points (C&J comes to mind, as well as many others) Prada sneakers aren't any better made than most mainstream brands. For the most part sneakers in general aren't purchased for their durability or quality, or even price/quality ratio, otherwise we'd all be in new balances. I would group all three of these providers in the same ballpark in terms of quality of construction. Pretty much when you're talking about sneakers look and feel would be what you would be looking for, if you feel the need to pay for brand name then go right ahead.
Please don't get into an argument about the quality of LV/Prada sartorial products, on this forum you don't even want to go there. I think some LV leather goods/accessories are decent, I use a taiga leather card case as my primary wallet, but for the most part, all you're paying for is the name and logo, at least now as opposed to at turn of the 20th century.
