Footpatrol x Mizuno Contender ‘Pre & Post Match’ | Now Available!

07.12.22 General

“Did you see the game last night?” A question asked by many, every Monday morning in the UK… For this latest project, we partnered up with Mizuno up for a second time this year, centering our focus on the nation’s favourite sport, Football.

We pay homage to the love of the game with the arrival of the Footpatrol x Mizuno Post Match collection. Designed with both sneaker enthusiasts & football fans in mind, this eclectic range combines seamless astroturf style with Mizuno’s timeless functionality that continues to inspire a new generation of sports enthusiasts.

Kicking off this authentic partnering is our recreation of the ‘95 Mizuno Contender silhouette, arriving in Premium nubuck material in irongate grey that sets the tone to this football focussed design. Premium football boat leather is applied to the toe box – a nod to the Mizuno’s football boots with the same material equipped on the tongue that is further spot-varnished with Mizuno and Footpatrol brand logos. Washed suede outskirts the toe cap and outer heel collar, while reflective detailing graces the lateral heel.

Patent leather is the material of choice for the Runbird insignia, hallmarking the sidewall with some brand heritage, with further Footpatrol branding etched to the heel in gold. Pops of Turquoise outline the Runbird moniker as well as featuring on the insole, inner tongue, and parts of the treaded outsole. To finish, an EVA moulded midsole supplies cloud-like cushioning with each stride.

Championing football nostalgia, we continue our Mizuno ‘Post Match’ collection with the addition of a football jersey sitting alongside the footwear. The jersey takes inspiration from the 2001/2002 Fiorentina kit, which was produced by Mizuno and worn by the likes of Adriano. Arriving in a split grey and black colour combination, our Jersey features an ‘FP’ monogram adorned to the left side of the chest, accompanied by our own recreation of the Scudetto moniker, taking colours from the progress pride flag to promote equality in not only football but all areas of life.

Respective Mizuno labelling adorns the other side of the chest in a turquoise hue with local Soho-based record store ‘ Reckless Records’ acting as a shirt sponsor that is featured across the mid-chest. Additional features include ‘EST. 2002’ lettering that appears on the left arm signifying the year Footpatrol first opened, our bar logo that is printed on the right arm, with a brand lock up logo completing the front with some co-branding heritage. On the reverse, the ‘20’ printed squad number was designed to call out our anniversary year, with inspiration taken from early premier league numbers.

The Mizuno x Footpatrol collection will be launching in-store and online on Saturday 10th September.
