Originally introduced in the early 70's, the Pro-Keds Royal was a classic basketball sneaker that was loved by the players and also the pioneers of the NYC street culture. The new Royal Plus Leather combines the old basketball heritage with clean, sophisticated aesthetics in a Lo and Hi style. The Hi top features Black and Smoke leather uppers while the Lo's are made with Navy and Toffee leathers. New to this model is the hexagonal metal eyelets that provide a hint of improvement to the classic sneaker. The tongue has also been padded and elongated along side the leather inner lining to ensure unmatched comfort.
