The ACE Hotel creative team is really going to town on collaborations at the moment. Following a beautifully finished pair of hotel slippers made in collaboration with Hender Scheme, the hotel chain has now partnered with Vans to produce a pair of Era 59 sneakers. Dressed in slick tonal black, the styling has a distinct feel of “LA-cool” – which is fitting since the sneakers are an ACE Hotel Downtown Los Angeles exclusive. To accompany the shoe launch, the hotel will be screening Dogtown and Z-Boys in their theatre on June 22 as well as offering an online skate game (huh?) Noise Grind. T

he sneakers will be available from ACE’s LA location on June 22 and online the next day.
