With all due respect, will June or any other month feature a bigger release at Patta than last Saturday’s Nike Air Yeezy 2 drop? Nike Sportswear won’t be able to top that buzz with their ‘Safari Pack’ Quickstrike, but that June 15th release does indeed mean that although you can’t help but have a relatively quieter weekend after the last one’s magnitude, there’s still plenty of heat on deck. One of the more intriguing of those is the Patta x KangaROOS Tennis Oxford collabo, a trio of suede-accented canvas lowtops ready to expose a new generation to ROOS’ signature zip pocket. These 1981 classics will arrive at select retailers like Overkill on Friday, so click through to see more images and let us know how these compare to the more conventional heat also dropping over the weekend.

Amsterdam boutique Patta stepped back from the spotlight of 2010′s #1 sneaker release and only issued a single collaboration last year, a 2×2 pack of boots from an obscure American brand whose biggest impact were their namesake pocketed 1980s runners. Maybe it’s because everything Patta touches turns to gold that the PxK Hiking Collection turned out so well, though a look at this duo’s second team-up suggests strong contributions from both sides. The Patta x KangaROOS Tennis Oxford resurrects a lost classic from ’81 and presents it in three tonal canvas and suede designs befitting today’s styles. These will arrive at select European retailers soon with Concepts in Cambridge, MA the only US store to get pairs; let us know if you’ll make the effort to grab them after you check out more images below. via Sneaker Freaker Germany
