Footpatrol has been banging out some FRESH collabs as of late. The two that have stuck out for me are their LeCoq Sportiff Eclat and this. A shoe delayed right after it’s announcement in April of this year. Almost 7 months later we finally see it make it’s debut at the Footparol location. No doubt because of that, the store received a major queue for the shoe with strict check in times and a no brainer sell out. Having the shoe finally in my hands after a week of waiting, I can understand the hunger to want a pair. For one, the suede on this Shadow 6000 is buttery smooth on the entire upper.

The model is also compromised from a lush suede upper, 3M reflect and a leather ankle lining. They even dressed the mid-sole with some splatter envisioned by the dirty side streets. These are some notable materials and accents that will make this make-up stand out and appealing to fans…
