Footpatrol meets the outdoors with yet another coveted collaboration for our 20th anniversary. Introducing our latest partnering with Mizuno on the renowned Wave Rider 10 silhouette. With this project inspiration from mother Earth – honing in on the weathering process of rocks and minerals.
Weathering is a fundamental process on Earth and many things surround us like water, ice, salt, acids and plants are all agents of weathering, therefore our iteration of the Wave Rider 10 is the perfect way for us to showcase the natural processes of the world.
Focussing on the geographical element of erosion, the Footpatrol Wave Rider 10 ‘Rust’ is readied in a mixed material construction, long nap-hairy suede embellishes the toe box and lateral ankle collar. An airy closed mesh heel further adds depth and texture paired with washed suede overlays all subdued in Driftwood Brown, Berry Conserve and Green Milieu – reminiscent of the colours seen through the varying stages of erosion.
Runbird insignias sit in its original place on the lateral sidewall alongside a rust-inspired jewel detail on the heel graphic complete with respective Mizuno & Footpatrol brand logos. Packed with Wave Technology, a thermoplastic plate insert that provides a unique combination of cushioning, stability and energy return in every step for maximum comfort. Speckled midsole detailing and a durable rubber outsole that sits underneath completes this look with multidirectional tread – perfect for those off-terrain adventures. Each pair comes with tri-colour hiking cord laces and is housed in a special edition, custom designed Mizuno & Footpatrol shoe box (available exclusively at Footpatrol).
The Footpatrol x Mizuno Wave Rider 10 ‘Rust’ is now available in-store and online here, priced at £135.
