Foot Patrol has opened its second store in Paris feet away from the Pompidou building that inspired the designs of Nike‘s Air Max 1. This location takes up almost 500 square feet creating a small haven for French sneakerheads.
The space was designed by London-based architectural studio Counterfeit Studio. In it we see the gas mask neon sign centered surrounded by walls of sneakers from your favorite brands. Concrete walls and floors add an industrial feel while the fiberglass brings a futuristic aspect to the build-out. The store is fronted by a framed black cover that brings a strong presence to the historic Le Marais district. Foot Patrol’s Jimmy Horrocks share his thoughts on the opening.
“Paris has always stood out to us as a key city, it’s the capital of some of the world’s biggest fashion houses and a number of amazing streetwear boutiques. In a way, it has many resemblances to London yet it remains unique and true to its roots. With Parisians very much having their own unique sense of style and identity. We are really excited to join the amazing Parisian retail landscape and look forward to welcoming all through our small, but inviting store!”
The store will stock items from adidas, PUMA, Converse, Vault by Vans and many more sportswear brands. Accessories from BE@RBRICK and Jason Markk will also be available. Take a peek inside the second Paris stronghold above.
