We know and love Gucci’s Ace sneakers, ever since Alessandro did a fun twist on it for Gucci Garden.
Now, it’s time to get acquainted with the new Ace Patch collection that comes with interchangeable patches! For Pre-Fall 2017, the house’s classic white court styles have been updated with five new styles for men – with interchangeable patches that attach via snap buttons.
Each can then be customised further when you acquire additional patches from a range of nine add-ons.
The Gucci emblems decorating Ace Patch kicks include the iconic Gucci tiger head, cat, dragon, panther, and “Blind For Love” design. As with previous styles, the back of the heels comes in laminated snakeskin – blue on the right shoe and red on the left.
In addition to these pre-determined pieces, nine detachable patches – a beaded heart pierced by a sword, tiger head, pearl-studded number 25, pineapple, cat, crystal-embellished panther, bee, eye, and owl head – can be used to take your taste for customisation to the next level. There are over 100 patch combinations, to be precise. What’s more: There are high-top variations of the sneakers available too.
