Editor’s Notes: Gucci is prepping the release of a new selection of the Ultrapace sneaker, following its debut in the house’s Fall/Winter 2019-2020 runway show. During the presentation the shoe was worn by both men and women, showcasing rich details and contrasting logo elements. In addition to new materials and colors, the Ultrapace is optioned in a mid/high-top version for Gucci Cruise 2020, as well as an iteration done up in sparkling fabric reminiscent of a disco ball.
The vintage-inspired Ultrapace is characterized by its mix and match of materials and a lightly distressed effect. The sneaker comes with a tricolor rubber sole, hand-colored midsole, terry cloth lining, and uppers made from Tejus printed leather, leather, suede, metallic leather, and Lavaredo fabric, as colorways are optioned in different material combinations. Branding and logo elements also differ on each iteration. Details include a vintage-style Gucci label attached to the tongue, interlocking GG motifs, and an embroidered “GUCCI” and letter “G.” Lastly, the mid/high-top version of the Ultrapace welcomes an additional Velcro strap at the vamp featuring the word “MiD” on a rubber panel.
Gucci’s new Ultrapace collection comes to Gucci Wooster, Las Vegas Crystals, Beverly Hills, Chicago, Houston, Atlanta, and Bal Harbour on August 7. It will start to trickle into the rest of the store network in early September.
