Patta, Alife and Rockwell suit each others aesthetic better than any, so when I heard of this pending colab, I knew it would be great. The shoe, dubbed ‘RAP’, with obvious meaning is a special edition of Alife’s successful ‘Everybody Mid’. Upper materials are nubuck, mesh, ripstop nylon, perforated nubuck with 3M backing and a screen-printed patent leather tongue label. Inside materials are screen-printed leather lined collar and footbed.
The shoe is exclusive to Patta in Amsterdam with a launch and release party (at Bitterzoet), and at Alife’s NYC, LA and Vancouver stores on may 3rd.
