This marks the brand’s fourth collaboration with the lifestyle group. The range of sneakers are available in dark and moody palette and have the added height of the ankle which honours the legend of Julius Dr J Erving. The London-based hotel also held three days contemporary knit workshop on November 13th, where people stopped by to design crafted pair of socks to compliment the new Pro Leather sneakers.
