From hospitality to design, world-renowned hotel chain Ace Hotel teams up with Converse to present their latest footwear offering. What’s proven a healthy relationship, the Ace Hotel x Converse Pro Leather High arrives as the hotel’s fourth collaboration.
Constructed to celebrate the grand opening of the hotel’s newest location, this Converse Pro Leather High model is made from the finest of materials which essentially offers wearers a remarkable product. Check out an official press release below:
The Ace Hotel for Converse CONS Pro Leather High is the perfect cold-weather companion to the perforated spring release. The sneaker features a combination of sheep leather and premium nubuck on its uppers, with soft cowhide leather on the lining and a subtle repeat of the memorable ‘A’ laser cut detail.
To celebrate the launch Ace Hotel and Converse will also hold a 3-day contemporary knit workshop in the London hotel’s pop-up store from Wednesday 13th November, inviting people to stop by between 10am and 6pm to design a beautifully crafted pair of socks to compliment their new Pro Leather sneakers. A knitting team led by Julia Billback and Magdalena Gustafsson will then produce the seasonal gifts on site using the finest merino wool yarns, as well as creating some original and playful installations that help take the story to the street.
Converse First String is a limited-edition collection that celebrates craftsmanship, authenticity and collaboration at the highest level. The Ace Hotel for Converse Pro Leather High Sneaker will be available in limited quantities, beginning on Friday 15th November exclusively at Ace Hotel locations in North America, Ace Hotel London and select Converse First String retailers in Europe and Asia. The sneakers will retail for a MSRP of $120 and will be available in men’s sizing from US 8-12.
