The cover of Ghostface Killah’s 1996 debut solo album Ironman shows Ghost, Raekwon and Cappadona staunching over a pile of custom dyed, split-coloured Wallabee boots. It’s this cover, and Wu Tang as a whole, that Footpatrol and Padmore & Barnes pay their respects to with their Original Boot P404 colab. Sharing lineage with Clarks – for a period the Wallabee was manufactured in the Padmore & Barnes factory – the P404 is steeped in history and rose to popularity in the US during the 60s.
The yellow and black colourway raises a ‘W’ to the Wu Tang logo, while the red and black combo appears as a remix. The P404 flaunts a premium suede build with smooth tan leather lining and dual Footpatrol and Padmore & Barnes branded footbeds. Topping it off, each pair features a custom suede Footpatrol Gasmask swing-tag.
Those wanting to cop a pair of the Footpatrol x Padmore & Barnes Original Boot P404 can do so on August 26 via Footpatrol online.
