Footpatrol teams up with Vans VAULT on an exclusive three-piece footwear collection & unique photography show celebrating the rich history of Soho.


Footpatrol has always had a strong appreciation for heritage. Whether it be in the form of paying homage to the area they call home or an appreciation for heritage footwear, there's always a story to tell, making a partnership with Vans VAULT feel all the more natural.

Vans have a long and storied history in which Footpatrol were keen to tap into for their first collaboration with the heritage skate brand. For this collection  three classic Vans VAULT silhouettes- the Classic Slip-On LX, SK8-Hi and Old Skool LX, receive an elevated update using premium materials whilst highlighting original details from each model.

 Each pair features a mix of premium materials such as hairy suede and 10oz drill canvas utilising classic Vans colours. The contrast in the colour palette brings a unique two-tone aesthetic to the collection. Design details include a smooth vulcanised toe-cap across all three models, embossed kerb stone details on the medial side (a nod to the kerb stone markings found in Soho) and Footpatrol branding lateral midsole panel along with co-branded repeat graphic laces.

Further subtle details can be found throughout all three models such as the two-toned elastic gore panels on the Classic Slip-On LX and the stitch details on the SK8-Hi lace-stay.
