This past weekend Foot Patrol launched their newest collab with adidas in the form of the B-Sides project. A collaboration that started way back in 2007 using a simple adidas Campus CP80 with snakeskin stripes has now been reworked into three colourways featuring black and marine pony hair pops. Check out the launch pics courtesy of our good mate Errol. Peep the press release below for more info.
We are happy to finally announce our first collaborative project with Adidas since re-opening the store. Introducing the Adidas Orginals x Foot Patrol Campus 80′s ‘B-Sides'.
The Foot Patrol x Adidas Originals Campus 80′s B-Sides shoe will be available at Foot Patrol at 9AM on Saturday 17th September 2011 (17.09.11). Size UK4 - UK12 (including half sizes) at £90. Gift with purchase for the first 80 in-store customers. Strictly one pair per customer.
Rewind back to 2007, in our previous location, ourselves and Adidas Originals teamed up to release a Campus 80′s triple pack. Consisting of three colourways (grey, burgundy & yellow), using the finest suede, contrasting stripes on the outside, with the tonal snakeskin stripes on the inside, this was a shoe that wasn't only to be admired, but also to be worn.
Fast forward to 2011 in the new spot, and we're back again with the same ethos. You know they say that things are ‘best kept simple', and that's the truth. This release sees a dark marine colourway (no more worrying about whether to bring em' out in the winter weather or not), with the vintage style mid-sole and white ‘three stripes' sitting on the outer side panel. On the flipside, we've used marine/black horse hair as the stripe detail.
