hummel and Italian retailer Par5Milano have joined together to create a new sneaker which pays tribute to the ace playing card.
Once representing the lowest value of the deck, the ace has developed into a symbol of power and strength and currently assumes the highest value out of the traditional 52 card deck. Par5Milano and hummel aimed to reflect this, along with a little Italian swagger, in their first collaboration. The result sees the classic Marathona silhouette recreated using premium materials, including high quality suede in shades of beige and green, and a gum sole.
The custom box packaging doubles as an actual card game table, and inside of the box you’ll also find a deck of "Poker San Siro" cards, created and produced by Dal Negro.
The sneaker is set for release on September 8 at Par5 Milano stores and online. The collaboration will also be available at select retailers including Mita, Hanon, Overkill, Afew, Black Rainbow, Footpatrol and others.
