The PRO-Keds Royal was first introduced in the early 1970's and it was worn by great players in the basketball league. These sneakers were also loved by numerous key figures from the NYC street scene back in the day. The latest version from the 2011 collection is the Royal Plus Hi Nubuck featuring crinkled nubuck material on the uppers with perforated stripes on the side. Camouflage pattern fabrics line the interior of the sneakers and the Drilex material on the footbed helps to reduce moisture build up. Both of the sneakers are currently available PRO-keds online store and select retailers nation wide.
