Not a month has passed since their last collaboration and London’s finest footwear retailer has struck again with the REEBOK X FOOTPATROL CLASSIC LEATHER MID ‘ON THE ROCKS’. Previously the FP crew took their inspiration from the sultry streets of Soho, this time they’ve turned their attention to the mountains and the 90s.
By applying their own personal touch to the mid-cut version of the cult pub shoe, which enjoyed massive popularity amongst the youth of 90s Britain, the result is a shoe that marries magnificently the Classic’s street heritage with a mountainwear aesthetic. Garish purple nylon combines with brown nubuck and mesh in a look that recreates vintage hiking apparel, while still retaining the irrevocable spirit of British streetwear that is infused in the Classic Leather. One of the key features of this drop is definitely the selection of laces, totalling five sets, and that for us is a good look.
As with most collaborative releases these days, there’s a launch party. But this time round the FP crew have extended the invite outside the confines of the usual media and friends & fam and have opened the doors to everyone, so if you’re around London Town on the evening of THURSDAY 21.11.13 then be sure to head down to their Berwick Street store from 7pm onwards and check out their latest creation.
The REEBOK X FOOTPATROL CLASSIC LEATHER MID ‘ON THE ROCKS’ is scheduled to drop in limited numbers on SATURDAY 23.11.13 from 00:00hrs GMT onwards, and as always come the hour of midnight, we’ll have you hooked up via the link-through below.
