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.

Stay tuned for more into to be announced at www.alifenyc.com, www.patta.nl and Patta’s SXH blog.
