Jhung Yuro Creates An Original Limited Edition Sneaker for Luxury Brand Hennessy
Luxury lifestyle designer Jhung Yuro created a one-of-a-kind pair of limited edition sneakers for luxury brand Hennessy called The Hennessy Celebration Hi-Top. Hennessy was looking to continue building long-term connections with its customers.

“Sneakers are becoming the new American luxury item and the impact of having our own sneaker is major,” says Donae Burston, regional marking manager for Hennessy. “With this collaboration, Hennessy and Jhung Yuro continue their tradition of offering only the finest for those with discerning taste.”

The Hennessy Celebration Hi-Top is made from soft full grain leather with a cow suede tongue and vamp, napa pigskin interior and a lizard embossed overlay and strap. Color blocked with cognac brown and cream, The Hennessy Celebration Hi-Top has a non-marking rubber midsole, crepe rubber outsole with leather logo patch, deco stitch and will be packaged in an exotic skin embossed shoebox with a braided rope shoebox handle.

The Hennessy Celebration Hi-Top retails for $300 and is available exclusively at The Hennessy Celebration Hi-Top is a limited edition shoe with only 500 pairs being made available in the US.
