Footpatrol Reveals Japanese-Inspired PUMA TSUGI Shinsei Collaboration
A premium upgrade in “Olive” and “Birch.”
After releasing a string of high-profile footwear collaborations over the past year — such as the Converse One Star “Jewel” and a brightly colored New Balance 576 — London’s Footpatrol has now worked with PUMA on two joint TSUGI Shinsei silhouettes. One of the standout features of the collaborative sneaker is the detailing which is reminscent of Japanese Sashiko stitching and creates a geometric pattern on the tongue and quarter panels.
The TSUGI Shinsei is available in two colorways — “Olive” and “Birch” — and comes with an upper made from premium frain leather, nubuck and cotton canvas. Elsewhere, the sneakers come with an earthy rubber outsole and a knitted inner sock, before being finished by an embossed Footpatrol “Gas Mask” logo on the rear heel stamp and colored beads on the toggled laces.
Both colorways are set to drop exclusively at Footpatrol on December 8, with the “Birch” version being limited to just 100 pairs worldwide. The sneakers are set to retail at £155 GBP, roughly $210 USD. In other sneaker news, The Shoe Surgeon and Farfetch have released a set of one-off sneakers to raise money for charity.
