The wait is finally over. Converse One Star and Footpatrol have released their long anticipated collaboration project, which features a unique One Star sneaker inspired by London’s historical Soho landmarks and the city’s affluent sneaker culture. Both companies have dominated in modern streetwear, but they take it to the next level with their latest design.
While the sneaker’s design boasts suede upper and leather lining to enhance its high quality look and feel, the devil really is in the details as the shoe symbolizes more than just something to put on your feet. Footpatrol leaves its mark in embroidered detail on both the side heel, as well as on the laces to showcase the brand’s famous slogan.
The famous Converse logo star has been transformed into actual studded jewels, a prominent feature on either sides of the sneaker. The mysterious symbol in the front of the shoe is a reflection of the curb stone markings in Soho, which celebrates London’s heritage and speaks to Footpatrol’s influence and subcultural roots in the area. Hence, inspiring the collaborative name “Jewels of Soho”.
“Jewels of Soho” is an exclusive collaboration dedicated to highlighting both companies strong foothold in the ever-evolving streetwear culture. And with designs like these, they don’t appear to be slowing down anytime soon. Get yours at any of the stores below for HK$859 per pair.
