This is not the first time XLarge and Pro-Keds have crossed paths. In fact, the two brands worked on a successful project in 2006, celebrating the 15th anniversary of XLarge. Both brands got back to the drawing board, concocting the latest offering based on the classic Royal Plus sneakers. This model was popular on the basketball court and on the feet of Ivy League fashionistas, making a perfect crossover from athletics to fashion. These 2012 versions retain the integrity of the original shoes, except for the additional faux python skin material on the side and heel panels. Grab these kicks at select XLarge stores from late December, or pre-orders can be made at XLarge online shop in ZOZOTOWN.
