Converse Inc. introduces the Ace Hotel for Converse CONS Pro Leather High Sneaker for Holiday 2013, marking the brand’s fourth collaboration with the inspirational lifestyle group just in time to commemorate their latest hotel opening.
The collection features a true high top in premium leather with the versatile silhouette of a boot – a perfect transitional sneaker as the winter season approaches. The Ace Hotel for Converse CONS Pro Leather High is the perfect cold-weather companion to the perforated spring release.
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.
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.
