It’s been four years since ADIDAS ORIGINALS CONSORTIUM and FOOTPATROL last came together to produce a shoe, so a Three Stripes/Gasmask launch party was well overdue.
Footpatrol threw open its doors last Thursday to celebrate the launch of its very topical take on adidas’ newly-resurrected court classic: the EDBERG 86 ‘STRAWBERRIES & CREAM’. Fittingly for an event celebrating a lawn tennis shoe, it rained. However, a plentiful supply of beers, loud tunes, and an ice cream truck doling out whippy cones and strawberries ensured the precipitation did not halt play. The tennis theme was extended to the décor as well, with artificial turf laid out over the shop floor and wooden bleachers proudly displaying the dessert-inspired shoe.
Big thanks go out to all at adidas and Footpatrol for their kind hospitality – the EDBERG 86 ‘STRAWBERRIES & CREAM’ is now sold out online, but you can pick it up instore from Footpatrol. The shoe will be dropping online elsewhere later in the month and we’ll keep you updated on all those details right here.
