Footpatrol has presented the lookbook for its Diadora collaboration: The FOOTPATROL X DIADORA ‘THE MACHIATTO’ PACK, named of course after the Italian coffee drink. Appropriately, the shoot took place in the sleepy, elegant towns of the Veneto region of northern Italy, during sunnier times.

The lookbook features a friends-and-family only tracksuit, so we’ll focus just on the trainers. The ‘Machiatto’ pack consists of two silhouettes, the V.7000FP and B’Elite. Let’s start with the V.7000FP: The upper is constructed from a beige pigskin nubuck, combined with pebble and sand coloured overlays. The Diadora logo comes in a hairy suede, also in a tonal beige, while white leather is featured on the tongue and heel. A metallic gold Diadora logo and shoe model number are embroidered on the tongue, while a coffee art-style Macchiato logo is debossed near the heel. There’s also Footpatrol and Diadora branding debossed and printed in metallic gold. The familiar tricolour of the Italian flag is woven above the heel branding and, keeping with the coffee theme, the midsole fades from beige to white. Finally, the silhouette includes two sets of laces – flat white laces with gold aglets and raw leather laces. There are lot a features packed in there, but the design doesn’t look overly busy at all. The various combinations of brown, gold, beige and white are very reminiscent of the colours when frothy milk mixes with dark coffee.

Similarly, the B’Elite applies the same beige pigskin nubuck to the upper, with pebble-coloured Diadora logos on both the medial and lateral sides. The tongue is made from a combination of the nubuck and white leather. The Diadora and Macchiato logos are embroidered in metallic gold and everything sits on top of a white midsole with a beige outsole.

It’s all a far cry from Footpatrol’s Berwick Street HQ, so we’re tempted to head straight to the nearest Italian coffee shop to sip on a Machiatto, close our eyes and pretend we’re enjoying ‘La Dolce Vita’ in an Italian village while the sun caresses our pasty English faces.
