Patrice Beneteau was a 19th-century shoemaker in the little French town Pouzauges. One day, Patrice decided to make shoes for the local soccer team. He did such a fine job that the word spread fast and other teams came knocking at his door. So on a sunny day in 1892, Patrice created Patrick. Not much later he was also producing Patrick shoes & apparel for basketball, cricket, athletics and leisure.
In the 1930s, Patrick introduced its famous two stripes to technically strengthen the shoes. Patrick was one of the pioneers to use this widely copied technique. Later, the striping became mainly a matter of design, but the two Patrick stripes were there to stay.
As from the 1950s, Patrick sponsored many great legends in soccer, rugby, cycling and other sports: Kevin Keegan, Michel Platini, ... Or Jacques Anquetil and Bernard Hinault, who both won the Tour de France five times. Still, Patrice would have easily kept his cool. That’s what you get when you’ve been around for more than 100 years.
