A good pair of sneakers is basically a must for any traveler. No other type of footwear serves up comfort and coolness quite like a quality pair of kicks. And while the Adidas Stan Smith had its moment a few years ago, it looks like the next It-shoe will be Gucci’s Ace sneaker. Don't believe us? It's already been endorsed by celebs like Jennifer Lopez.

Another reason why this style has gained a cult following, not just among A-listers but ordinary folk as well, is undoubtedly its price tag. At $580, this sneaker costs way less than any other Gucci footwear option. So for those of you who are thinking of adding a pair of Aces to your shoe closets or are looking for a holiday gift for the fashionista in your life, we have some very exciting news.

The personalization option will allow you to choose from stitching your initials with or without periods on one or both shoes as well as opting for different letters and colors on each sneaker.

The custom Ace sneakers will be priced at $730, and you will only have two weeks to take advantage of the service.
