Say hello to the Chuck Taylor All Star Bosey, a classic high-top designed by Converse and Ace Hotel head Alex Calderwood. The hotel's latest foray into footwear costs $100 a pair and comes in a limited run over 300. They're inspired by wading boots that the sneaker company created for the U.S. army in the 1940s—perfect those days when it's damp out but not full-on wet enough for your Ace Hotel Tretorn rain boots.
