If you’re one of Gucci’s ardent fans, you’ll be stoked to hear that the brand’s popular Ace sneakers have just gotten a customisable update. For Pre-Fall 2017, the iconic white kicks are introduced in six new styles for women, and five for men. The cherry on top? They all come with interchangeable patches.
When you score a pair of the updated Ace sneakers, you’ll also get to choose a pair of patches to go along with it. But with nine different designs, we suggest you nab a few more patches — because by a matter of patch-swapping seconds, you’ll get a completely new look. And if we get mathematical here, here’s how it works out: You can get over 100 combinations on your Ace. Sweet.
The ladies’ original patches that come along with the Ace sneakers include the Gucci cat, “Blind for Love” expression, pineapple, crystal panther, flamboyant fumé crystal bow, Alessandro Michele’s favourite number 25, and beaded heart pierced by a sword. Additional ones you can add into your patch rotation are: Two different bows, flower, snowflake, eye, bee, two feline heads (a tiger and a cat) an the word “Love” in a rainbow typeface.
The guys’ pre-determined patches will have the same “Blind for Love” text, Gucci tiger, cat, UFO, dragon and terry-threaded panther. But other designs include the beaded heart pierced by a sword, tiger head, number 25 in pearls, pineapple, cat, panther, bee, eye and owl head.
Gucci’s Pre-Fall 2017 customisable Ace sneakers are now available in stores. Shoes range from RM3,100 – RM$4,480, and additional patches range from RM1,000 – RM1,500.
