Par 5 Milano and Hummel have teamed up to combine Italian style with Danish design sensibility, producing one heck of a sneaker collaboration, dubbed ‘The Ace’. Hummel’s retro running silhouette, the Marathona, has been built up with reference to a traditional card game, reflecting an old-fashioned way of life and the power of the 52-card deck’s top dog. Utilising premium suede and leather, the beige and green upper uses contrasting colours and textures to produce a perfectly balanced visual treat. As with all good colabs, there's more to it that a killer pair of sneakers, the whole package comes wrapped up in a special box that unfolds to form a card playing surface. It even includes a deck of cards made by Italian manufacturer Dal Negro.
The Par 5 Milano x Hummel Marathona ‘The Ace’ is limited to 300 pairs worldwide and will be available from select stockists, hit up Par 5 for more info.
