Patta x Reebok Workout 25th Anniversary

Dutch sneaker boutique Patta‘s participation in sneaker collaborations is all over the board, but they all share something in common.  Whether it’s a world-beater like the Parra-penned Air Max 1 that took over early 2010 or more obscure releases like their ongoing relationship with Asics, Patta collabos are fairly severely limited, and they pack a punch with innovative designs.  For their contribution to Reebok’s latest world-spanning anniversary super-collab, the Amsterdam natives opted for a rabbit-inspired motif emphasizing the qualities of agility and speed and their connection to training.  The Patta x Reebok Workout 25th Anniversary outpaces many of the other designs from this capsule thanks to a whimsical approach to the ever popular horsehair build, due in large part to the crisp and cool colorway not typically being associated with such a fuzzy look.  Check them out up close after the jump, and now that the entire Workout 25 collection has been unveiled, which pairs will you line up for when they all release tomorrow, February 15th?

Patta x Asics Gel Saga Release Recap

December 27th, 2011 by | No comments

patta asics gel saga release recap 14 570x379 Patta x Asics Gel Saga Release Recap

While US sneakerheads were going stark raving mad over the Air Jordan XI Retro ‘Concord’ release this past week, the Euro scene shifted its attention to Amsterdam where the boutique that topped many best-of 2010 lists issued their latest collaboration with a brand whose recent resurgence they can be seen to have sparked a couple years back.  The Patta x Asics Gel Saga release represented the rise of both of these brands’ status to cult heroes within certain corners of the sneaker scene, with a large yet peaceful queue starting some two days before the December 22nd drop and building up to an instant sellout that also included some dual-branded winter gloves for the lucky ones in attendance.  Click through and you can see a video profile of the event featuring Nas’ steallar ‘lost’ track ‘Take it in Blood’ and stick with Sneaker News for event recaps from around the world.  via EUKicks

Patta x Asics Gel Saga – Release Date

patta x asics gel saga release date Patta x Asics Gel Saga   Release Date

When you mention the phrase “Patta Air Max 1″, chances are, sneakerheads will see images of the Parra-designed number one release from the Sneaker News Top 30 of 2010.  But don’t forget that the Dutch boutique started its onslaught of Nike Air Max 1 collaborations before the turn of the year back in ’09 by coming up with five different colorways in honor of its half-decade anniversary.  This December marks lucky number seven, and again Patta has something ready just in time for Christmas, only this time the store is arguably more famous than the shoe instead of the other way around.  The Patta x Asics Gel Saga brings a big spotlight to this classic runner just after the OG colorups hit this summer, and just before a new run is set to expand the Onitsuka Tiger’s retro running offerings into the next year.  Their 2007 Gel Lyte IIIs can be seen in retrospect as critical to reviving that now well-established cult favorite, but ’09′s Gel Lytespeed bringback hasn’t had the same impact on that model’s frequency and availability; how important will this Patta collaboration prove to the Gel Saga?  Click through for a video preview of the next chapter and get ready for the December 22nd release.

You know your readership is truly global when minutes after offering a possible explanation for the X insignias all over the Patta x Asics Gel Saga II, readers chime in to fill in the details for their hometown.  Before any such assertion from the Dutch boutique themselves, Sneaker News readers informed the world that the ‘XXX’ motif on the tongue and laces of Patta’s latest collaboration correspond to Amsterdam’s official coat of arms, a design that can also be seen to lend its black and red sections to this shoe’s aggressive colorway.  All of these details in conjunction with a crazy range of materials makes for one of the year’s most interesting guest spots, and now that we have a full look at the Gel Saga II, it’s only a matter of time before we know the release date.  Click through to get an eyefull and let us know if you’ll be lining up to vie for a pair of your own.  via SF

Patta x Asics Gel Saga II – Teaser

Three Xs in one spot has a variety of pointed connotations, ranging from bowling a turkey to that quirky sheep ad currently running on Hulu beckoning you to buy virtual real estate in the net’s newly established red light district.  And while Amsterdam is famous for its own such area, it’s another part of town and an entirely different meaning that Dutch boutique Patta looks to get across with the spot-markers on their latest collaboration with Asics.  The Patta x Asics Gel Saga II is marked with its triple-Xs in commemoration of this as the third classic runner they’ve resurrected together, and if the next couple years are anything like what’s happened in the wake of their Gel Lyte III and Gel Lytespeed teamups, we’re in for quite a treat.  This pair goes with a high contrast colorway you might call Chicago-esque were it not for select bright green accents, this twist a little one when compared to the unexpected variety of materials ranging from rubberized leather to horsehair.  Click through to see a few more teaser images and stick with Sneaker News for updates including the Patta x Asics Gel Saga release date.  via HS

Patta x KangaROOS PxK Hiking Collection

Dutch sneaker suppliers Patta have been silent when it’s come to collaborations in the wake of their world-beating Parra-designed Nike Air Max 1 provided an instant 500% ROI to those lucky enough to snag a pair last March.  Coming in at #1 on a variety of the year’s best-of lists puts Patta in the cushy position of being able to call their next shot, so while you might not have seen the particular brand coming, it’s not terribly shocking to see them spread the heat to one of the underdog brands.  The choice to move forward on the Patta x KangaROOS PxK Hiking Collection is a curious one, but you can’t really argue with the results.  The KangaROOS K2 shows the store’s typical eye for clever color combos with its ‘grape’-flavored accents adding a nice pop to an otherwise earthy design, while two pairs of Woodhollows stay closer to the tonal trend that’s so popular these days.  You can see more photos after the jump including the Victorinox Swiss Army Pocket Knife that comes with the Woodhollows, and look for these at Patta starting November 5th with additional select retailers to join the party one week later.
