Ace Hotel has always been known for their success at branding a very specific kind of lifestyle. Now, they’ve turned towards Converse for an exclusive Chuck Taylor All Star Bosey shoe. There are only 300 of them in the world, available online and at Ace Hotel shops. Interestingly enough, for the last couple of years, staff at Ace Hotel New York have been wearing a monochrome olive drab Converse as part of their uniform — only available to staff. The new ones are inspired by shoes from the Converse archives — with the feel of a sneaker, but with rugged boot detailing and design cues taken from vintage wading boots and basic training shoes the company made in the 1940s.
