PRO-Keds originally introduced the Royal Master DK in 1975 as a lightweight summer basketball shoe. After years of only being available in Japan, the J.Crew design team has teamed up with PRO-Keds to re-introduce the Royal Master in the United States.
The vintage-styled PRO-Keds x J.Crew Royal Master features a full-grain leather upper with the brand's trademark power stripes in navy and red, all on a vulcanized white sole.
The PRO-Keds x J.Crew Royal Master is available now at JCrew.com.
