Luxury fashion house Gucci unveils its latest sneaker entitled the 'New Ace' and the structure is the signature low cut tennis footwear design. It boasts new and elevated touches including the three velcro enclosing details over the top of the show in place of the lacing system.
There is also a large logo of the double G across the arch of the design, continuing its ongoing graphic work on footwear. The new sneakers are constructed from buffed leather materials in white over the uppers and have a rounded toe structure. The aforementioned velcro straps are accompanied by a softly padded tongue tab and collar to deliver comfort. The signature red and green hues are found at the heel tabs along with the large logo in yellow, red, and gray. The sneakers are rounded out with treaded rubber soles at the bottom.
