Footpatrol x Asics Gel Lyte III "Squad".

by Henrik Buzzi

Footpatrol are proud to presInspired by the original Footpatrol gasmask logo the GEL-LYTE III 'Squad' symbolises a time of conflict & struggle for many Britons but also reminiscent of a time when people came together in the hardest of times. The end result is the Footpatrol x ASICS Tiger GEL-LYTE III 'Squad'.

They took elements from the OG gasmask logo which formed the base for the colour palette of the GEL-LYTE III. A rich Olive Branch pigskin suede features on the upper, accented with Metallic Gold and Black details throughout. Footpatrol added peforated details on the toe-box and medial & lateral quarter panels. For added texture, they applied a hairy pigskin suede to the split-tongue. A deep Black suede is used on the ASICS waves logo on the lateral panel, on the flip side, the tonal medial ASICS waves logo is hightled with a reflective Metallic Gold trim.

The premium styling continues with soft Willow coloured inner lining and matching footbed, with the OG Footpatrol gasmask logo printed on the footbed heel. Further Footpatrol branding features throughout, the FP collegiate logo on the heel, and the Bar logo on the lateral side of the right shoe, and medial side of the left. This detail is also replicated on both panels with the ASICS Tiger GEL-LYTE III logo. The shoe comes supplied with a set of three laces - a Willow coloured lace, a reflective Olive Branch coloured rope lace, and an Olive Branch flat lace with a morse code message printed in Black that spells out 'Footpatrol GEL-LYTE III'. 
Rounding off the theme of our co-lab is the 'FP SQUAD' embroidered logo that carrys the message '11 Members, 1 Squad Leader' on the inside of the split-tongue. Releasing August 29th at Footpatol
