After dipping our toes into the esports world by partnering with the Call of Duty League (CDL) and Raven for our Soho pop-up, we knew it was time for us to try something new. It has been a long time coming, but we are finally ready to share our exciting foray into the world of gaming.
We have teamed up with ASTRO Gaming for a collaboration that we cannot wait to share. First up is a duo of bespoke ASTRO A40 Headsets dressed and designed by the Footpatrol team to help you show the world how much gaming means to you. To complement the launch, we have also got a selection of apparel pieces.
This project features two headsets: one yellow, one black, with custom Speaker Tags for further customization. Additionally, we have created a T-Shirt that portrays the traditional Footpatrol Gas Mask logo into something harder-hitting alongside the addition of two regional exclusives, split between our London and Paris stores. If you are keen on those, you will need to come down to the store to grab them. Once they are gone, they are gone!
Since it was founded, ASTRO Gaming has designed several stunning pieces of gaming tech, like award-winning headsets and mics. ASTRO Gaming is a company that has promoted a more inclusive gaming lifestyle, bringing the community together while creating products for hardcore enthusiasts, pros, and streamers.
Our journey with ASTRO Gaming ultimately began on a trip at the start of 2020, having been invited to see the London Royal Ravens’ home series at the Call of Duty League. We were blown away at the event’s size and scope. We felt it was only natural for us to come together and create something that transcends the footwear scene. Now that we’ve joined forces, it really does feel like anything is possible.
If you’re looking to get your hands on the ASTRO Gaming x Footpatrol collaboration, you had better act fast. Unlike the bond forged between both companies, these pieces aren’t going to last long…
Both headsets will be launching on NTWRK on Thursday 9th December at 6PM GMT. Please make sure to download the NTWRK app ahead of the launch.
The T-shirt will be available in two ways. An online raffle is currently live over on the Footpatrol Launches App however, if you happen to live close to our London and Paris stores, the T-shirt will be launching on a first come first serve basis. This will be available on Saturday 11th December. Those who purchase in-store will also receive a second t-shirt which are regional exclusives to our two stores. Designed with the gamer in mind, a map on the back of both depicts our stores within a gaming world.
