WHY WE COSIGN: Besides the Red Light District and coffee shops, the Patta sneaker and apparel shop is another reason why you should hit up Amsterdam. Edson Sabajao and Gee Schmidt started the shop out of their passion for sneakers. Patta houses exclusive brands such as the prestigious Nike Tier 0, HUF and adidas Consortium, making it a must on the Dutch street scene. Patta's style is an undeniably dope blend of European and Japanese influences.
WHAT'S NEXT: Celebrating its 5th anniversary, Patta continues to bolster its rep as a collabo master with Stüssy, Pro-Keds, Nike, Kangol, Converse, Ransom, ASICS and adidas projects coming down the pike.
BRANDS CARRIED: adidas Consortium, ASICS, HUF, Kangol, Nike Tier 0, Pro Keds, Puma, Ransom, Reebok, Rockwell, Stüssy and UBIQ.
