Year: 2008

We are tight with the people at Alife, so it was only a matter of time before we got together and collaborate on a project. For this one we also involved our family member Parra from Rockwell. "Rockwell Alife Patta", hence the "RAP" name. At the time, Alife's "Everybody"-models were doing really well, so we picked the mid-cut version to work with. Both the American and Dutch flags contain red, white and blue, so we kept it universal and went with those colors. It's a pretty basic shoe from afar, but again, there are quite some hidden details to be found upon closer inspection. The uppers are made up of premium nubuck and ripstop nylon, with 3M tucked underneath the perforated lacestay. The metal eyelets are in alternating colors and the tongue patch is in patent leather with Parra artwork, which can also be found on the sockliner, underneath the clear bottom sole and on the special box packaging.
