”Soho has always been our home, and with the opening of our new Parisian store, we wanted to find a location that carried similar characteristics and charisma of Soho”, said Footpatrol’s brand manager, John Brotherhood, on the company’s blog. Footpatrol occupied a building in London’s Soho district from 2002 to 2010, before relocating to its current location on Berwick Street.
Brotherhood also explained why Paris was chosen as the first destination for the brand’s international expansion. “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”.
The new store spans over more than 44 square meters and features top-tier sneakers and accessories from brands like Nike, Adidas, Puma, Converse, retaW and Jason Markk, among others.
The store is located on 45 Rue du Temple, Paris 75004
