Being able to do a collab using adidas‘ Futurecraft technology still is almost like knightly accolade in the sneaker world. Thus far, Stockholm’s Sneakersnstuff and Taipei’s Invincible already released their very own model. And with the Footpatrol x adidas Consortium 4D, one of London’s most notable sneaker boutiques is next in line.
The shoe launches with a specially-created installation at London Design Festival, for which the Footpatrol crew teamed up with visual artist Ben Cullen. The London creative’s works aim to create engagement with the phenomenological elements of the world around us.
This concept extends to the shoe itself, as it draws inspiration from the theory of colour harmony. With the colour wheel as a guide during the design process, Footpatrol selected an array of tertiary and secondary shades of green. The knit upper features screenprinted Three Stripes branding in white on the medial and in black on the lateral sides. Embroidered thread is then stitched in a block form overlapping the knitted upper and synthetic suede heel counter.
The Footpatrol gasmask logo sits on the embroidered Consortium label loop and heel of the footbed. And to finish things off, a Continental rubber outsole adds traction to the Futurecraft sole unit.
Take a detailed look at the finished sneaker below and read on to find out how to get your hands on a pair.
