Not many shops can compare to what Patta has been able to for the sneaker collaboration. Considering its work with Nike on the Air Max 1 and being the first retailer to work with ASICS on the Gel-Lyte III — or even more recently with Diadora on the N.9000 — a Patta collab is a stamp of approval from the Amsterdam boutique. The latest co-branded effort to come from Patta is a three-way Old Skool with Vans and Beams.
The sneaker is dubbed the "Mean Eyed Cat," and is a mostly black take on the throwback skate sneaker, except for "Patta" being written across the side and the aforementioned phrase on the sole. Unlike previous Patta collabs, this pair will only be available at a pop-up shop, in Harajuku, Tokyo, between the shop and Beams and is set to launch on September 25.
Patta knocked this collab out of the park, but is that really a surprise at this point?
