The UK’s Highest Peaks Influenced the Footpatrol x adidas EQT Running Support 93Release: 18 September 2021
The 30th anniversary celebrations for adidas’ famed EQT (Equipment) line are still going, and Footpatrol are ready to release their collaboration on the fan-favourite Running Support 93.
Our first glimpse of this linkup surfaced last month when we reported on the ‘Life Needs Equipment’ website. This is one of 12 Consortium collaborations that have been created to celebrate the legendary line that started back in 1991.
When retailer Footpatrol think of EQT, they think of the outdoors, and have been influenced by the United Kingdom’s three highest mountains for their Running Support 93. More specifically, the colours found within the sedimentary strata at each of the peaks provided them with the perfect colourway. Greys, blues, purples and reds exude an effortless outdoors look, especially when combined with the rugged technical materials such as rubber segment and TPU.
It wouldn’t be a Footpatrol colab without the gasmask on the heel. And other specialised touches include the medial midsole stripes which have the heights listed of the UK’s three highest peaks. A book will also be included with the colab, giving insight into the 30-year-old line with designer interviews and inspiration behind collaborations.
The Footpatrol x adidas EQT Running Support 93 lands on September 18. Raffles are open right now on the retailer’s website.
