Warrior & Patta & Staedtler
We always use Staedtler pens here at Art & Sole, so we were interested to see that they've recently joined forces with Chinese sneaker brand Warrior and Amsterdam-based store Patta to create this mini pack of hand coloured sneakers themed around 'back to school'.
Shanghai-based Warrior originally made sporting shoes for Chinese athletes and became a household name in China throughout the 60s, 70s and 80s. Now relaunched in Europe and the US, in addition to Shanghai, Warrior makes unisex sneakers in classic silhouettes.
This collaboration with Patta and Staedtler features the Warrior plimsoll Club model and is available in either black, red or blue. In reference to the 'back to school' theme, the sneakers have been pen-scratched by hand with Staedtler permanent markers and then waterproof coated for durability. Additional features include a woven side tag carrying Amsterdam’s signature triple-X mark, and Patta branding can be found on the sockliner and midsole tab.
Each pair comes in custom packaging and includes a set of Staedtler stationery containing a corresponding Lumocolor 318 Permanent marker, Mars Lumograph HB pencil, Mars Plastic slide sleeve eraser and a mini writing pad. Patta have also created three corresponding T-shirts featuring the Patta script logo to complete the set.
The shoes are available now at Patta or through the Warrior online store
