Footpatrol And Vans Vault Team Up To Pay Homage To London’s SoHo District
Esteemed London-based retailer, Footpatrol is tapping into Vans Vault’s expansive archive to release a three-piece collaborative collection anchored by simple black and white color schemes. Calling upon the the Classic Slip-On LX, SK8-Hi and Old Skool LX as the base of this collection, Foot Patrol’s premium aesthetic has elevated the models with luxe materials and a clean colorway. Hairy suede and canvas are used in conjunction for this set, while bringing a unique two-tone vibe that takes shape on both the uppers and outsoles of each shoe. Footpatrol branding takes shape in multiple key areas, including via an all-over graphic on the laces of the Sk8-Hi and Old Skool and coming on the lateral midsole of each, alongside an embossed kerb stone meant to emulate markings in London’s SoHo district. Set to release in conjunction with a photo exhibition dubbed “SoHo Since Forever” it is meant to celebrate the influential area and its inhabitants. Grab a detailed look at the full set below and look forward to their release exclusively at Footpatrol on November 30th with the exhibition taking place at 59 Greek Street, London, W1D 3DZ the same day.
