Belgian manufacturer Patrick had a whale of the time in the 1980s. Big club contracts in mainland Europe - and the odd example in the UK - coupled with huge name player endorsement deals made Patrick a winner in the eyes of a generation of football fans.
This 1985 catalogue shows the teamwear range, which doesn’t necessarily stand the test of time, but features connoisseur hits like jacquard shadow stripes and pinstripes on those oh-so-short shorts.
But it was the footwear where Patrick really excelled. From the ultra-understated Stabil Noir, via the technologically intriguing Platini Supers, to the downright futuristic Keegan Tactic, you could get these boots in any colour you wanted - as long as it was black (with white, silver, gold or red).
