As part of their Summer 2010 Collection, Pro Keds presents the Royal CVO and the evolution of it, the Royal CVO Mid.
“Originally launched in the mid 60′s as the Royal Edge, it was one of PRO-Keds first lifestyle products. Providing a nice complement to the iconic Royal basketball shoe, the Royal CVO grew in popularity with the leaders of alternative sports along the east coast in the 70′s and 80′s. A contemporary evolution of the Royal CVO, the Mid was first
introduced in Japan in 2008. Based off the royal platform, the upper is inspired by both alternative sports and street fashion.”
The linen uppers look great and are perfect for the summer. Nice detailed also include the linings and the tonal stripe detail on the mid-sole. The sneakers were launched May 1st. Detailed images of the sneaker follow after the jump.
