Converse continue their collaborative work with now international boutique hotel chain the Ace Hotel, working on a new version of their Pro Leather High.
The Ace Hotel, which recently opened up in London, lends its minimal design sensibilities to the CONS high top silhouette in a combination of high grade leather and slick suede. The sneaker’s greyscale colour palette is itself a nod to the London skies and streets with grey leather side panels that meet black nubuck on the eyestay, tongue, toe and heel. “Converse for Ace Hotel” text is debossed into the tongue and the chevron logo on the heel while branding on the side panels is simply perforated into the leather.
This is a perfectly premium utilisation of the silhouette that should make Pro Leather fans will be very happy. They will be available this coming Friday November 15th in-store only at Footpatrol, priced at £90.
