Due to its nature, not all news can be good. In fact, some can be downright distressing. None so much than the news that Footpatrol, London’s finest sneaker boutique, is closing at the end of the month.
SB heads will at least remember the shop as the launch pad for the London City Dunks and, at most, as one of the friendliest places to pick up exclusive and carefully selected kicks.
Following Slammin’ Kicks and Bond, Footpatrol is the latest shop of its kind to vacate London’s Soho as specialist stores are becoming as rare as the products they used to stock in the pre-Internet heydays.
Rest in peace, Footpatrol. We will miss you.
