The Wild Card: Gucci Ace
Thursday, 27, April 2017

Among the likes of Valentino and Buscemi comes a new player in the luxury sneakers scene – Gucci.

Ever since Alessandro Michele took over as Creative Director, the high profile label has made a huge fashion rebirth that skyrocketed Gucci as the most influential brands in both fashion and shoes for the past year. The embroidered patch trend we see today all started with this single shoe.

The Gucci Ace Low Tops sparked the whole revolution of roses and pop art patchwork. In the sneaker scene, brands and sneaker customizers have and still are dropping their iteration of embroidered laden shoes.

Gucci’s phenomenal worldwide success gives thanks to its retro and playful sophistication that transcends well to the taste of many.

For a more custom feel, the selection of Ace comes in a high variety of ultra fun designs. Most popular are the serpent and floral appliqués. Our choice calls for a summer flair with a lady bug and pineapple on opposite pairs. Both patches are studded with crystals then overlaid on Gucci’s signature green and red webbed bands. Not usually found for the Ace, but this particular design had additional golden embroidered stars on its inner side. The back features a metallic croc embossment with branding to complete its opulent craftsmanship.

The Gucci Ace is definitely a game changer, crossing over between street and high end, it totally rocks and it’s here to stay.
