What is it with Patta and their wonderful collaborations? I can’t think of too many brands who get their partnerships so on point. Favourites with us were their head-to-heads with C.P. Company and Mephisto. Their latest effort is with footwear favourites Sebago, in a Trans-Atlantic capsule collection with showcases both brands’ mutual goals. Patta have applied their own unique sensibilities to the iconic Sebago Ranger Boots and Sailing Jacket as part of the collaboration.
The bedrock of the collection is two Ranger Midtop Boots, orange and blue respectively. They both feature ONICE SOFT leather uppers and a rubber commando sole. They’ve got me thinking of Fila Trailblazers which is no bad thing. Hand-sewn by the finest craftspeople and held together by premium stitching on a base of Kletterfit VIBRAM as an outsole. These sturdy ankle-high mocs combine the comfort of a classy mid-high vamp and upper with the endurance of a thick rubber commando sole, granting weather resistance and improved stability. These details are specifically designed for comfort and durability. The heel is built up with a micro-cellular wedge material, provides lightweight comfort as well as superb shock absorption. Perfect for experiencing less fatigue when getting busy in these boots. The material is perfect for maximum grip on all surfaces and terrains. Both these materials have been
purposefully developed and chosen for the new run of shoes from Patta & Sebago®
Keeping in line with the first half of the collaboration, Patta & Sebago® have reinterpreted the original Sebago® Sailing Jacket. Inspired by the sailing roots of Sebago® , Patta has helped redesign the timeless piece. This three-layer Jacket composed of 3 layers is tailor-made for maximum performance. The first layer is composed of a 92/8 blend of nylon and spandex for a rip-stop comfortable fit, followed by a polyester membrane for impermeability and a final mesh layer for breathability. Neoprene cuffs defend from water, the underarm eyelets help for breathability, elastic regulation on the hem, and hood for practicality. This waterproof Patta x Sebago® Sailing Jacket has been tested with 10.000 water columns, all stitching is seam taped with personalized tape to guarantee waterproof performance.
The Patta x Sebago collaboration is available Patta’s own stores in Milan, Amsterdam and London.
