Footpatrol Paris Opening Week Recap

Footpatrol Paris Opening Week Recap

On May 19th we opened our second store; Footpatrol Paris. Ahead of our official opening, we had the chance to attend the Nike x Skepta launch party as well as invite some of closest Parisian friends & family into the store to celebrate the opening with us...! 

To start off the festivities we were invited to the launch of the Nike x Skepta Air Max BW/97 at La Tête Dans Les Nuages (head in the clouds), which is the biggest arcade room in Paris. The venue was completely taken over by Skepta with his SKair branding appearing throughout. Guests could enjoy all the fun of arcade games, basketball hoops, space invaders with some guests lucky enough to win exclusive Skepta merch from the claw-grab machines. Alongside the excitement of the arcade games we were treated to live performances from Hamza, Block 13 & Sheck Wes after a warm-up DJ set from Boy Better Knows very own DJ Maximum. Skepta and gang were also on sight participating in the on offer arcade games and enjoying the vibe with the on theme SKair food and drinks! 

With the official opening of Footpatrol Paris set for Saturday 19th it was only right that we invited some of our closest Parisian friends & family to the store on Friday evening for the first look of the store, ahead of opening to the general public, guests were treated to drinks supplied by Desperados and got a chance to see our Skepta install and preview some of the deadstock launches we were restocking for the opening weekend! 

Then came Saturday morning, the launch of Footpatrol Paris. We opened in the morning to a queue of raffle winners who all received a piece of SKair merchandise with their winning pair alongside the added gifts of Footpatrol Paris opening merchandise of Shoehorns, mugs and sticker sheets! The opening buzz continued on throughout the following week with customers queuing around the block to visit the store and try their luck with some of our deadstock drops! 

Thank you to everyone who came out from far and wide and supported the opening of Footpatrol Paris! We look forward to welcoming you all through our doors for the foreseeable future!
