Gucci has revamped its iconic white Ace sneaker for its pre-Fall 2017 collection to include new styles and interchangeable patches.

The Ace sneaker comes in six new designs for women and five designs for men. The women's sneaker features patches embellished in crystals and beads, while the men's sneaker is adorned with patches such as a panther or tiger head.

While each pair of shoes comes with two different patches, customers can buy up to nine other patches separately.

Patch designs include a snowflake, an eye and an owl head.

Prices for a pair of sneakers range from $990 to $1,430. Additional patches start at $330.

The Ace sneaker is available at Gucci's flagship store in The Paragon, as well as Gucci outlets in Ion Orchard, Marina Bay Sands and Takashimaya.
