This one's for the dudes. Listen up, we have an answer to your sartorial weather-based question: how to make your footgear look stylish when the elements of nature take over. Look no further. Tretorn has collaborated with Ace Hotel on a limited-edition version of their iconic rain boot, the Stråla Vinter. Available in a mere 300 pairs, the staff at various Ace Hotel locations will be rocking their new kicks this coming fall, proving that heritage and style do go hand in hand. For $70, the Tretorn x Ace Hotel boots will be available to buy at New York, Seattle, and Portland locations as well as online. We guess it's time to stop wearing our Converse during torrential downpours.
The low-cut rubber boots will be available in black with an ivy-green trim and a bold red outsole. With one boot featuring the Ace Hotel logo on one heel and the other featuring the Tretorn logo, they've also graced us with a message of morality: “Let’s Stand Together” is printed on each boot footbed.—Yale Breslin
