A closer look at the Footpatrol x Asics Gel Lyte III "Squad".

by Henrik Buzzi

Following on from Footpatrol’s army surplus themed GEL-Kayano Trainer collaboration in 2014, they have continued with the milatry-theme, this time taking inspiration from various miltary units within the army, and also pay homage to the original Footpatrol Gasmask logo. Picking up on the military theme, Footpatrol wanted to express the stores' team spirit. The army military unit 'Squad' stood out instantly amongst the rest, being that it's the only milatary unit that is closest to the number of members that make up TEAMFP.
They kept the colour palette simple using different shades of Green, with Black, Gold and Red being the accent colours adding subtle contrast to the silhoutte. Addiotinal details such as the morse code message printed on the Olive Branch coloured flat lace, additional mesh footbed, Black & Gold flecked translucent outsole, and the embroided label on the inside of the split-tongue makes the shoe standout amongst the rest. Releasing this Saturday at selected retailers worldwide.
