Nice one Thank you for clicking onto our show, you could’ve clicked onto anything else funny cat videos, I personally like watching snakes eating stuff or like, there’s this new thing that I subscribed to that was called, I think it’s called Ant Channel and this guy he literally narrates his whole ant farm Yes guys, we are collaborating with Foot Locker To celebrate the amount of fire creps they have in their collection, Foot Locker has set us a challenge We have to create a video lookbook on the concept of our summer rotation when it comes to the crep dem I love Stan Smiths, Gazelles, Hamburgs, Spezials I go to Foot Locker for two creps and that is Air forces and TNs The great thing about Foot Locker as well they get in like a load of different Jordans My favourite Jordans of all time would have to be the Cement 3 or the black Cat 4 or Bordeaux 7 So last night we went to Foot Locker to pick our shoes for our lookbooks When you look at so many shoes all at once, you get so flabbergasted, you don’t even know which ones to pick But in the end, we all had to make decision We picked four different creps to style our lookbook around We are gonna be working with the one and only Meeksimus the master of time, We have a week to shoot and edit our videos then Foot Locker is getting us a panel of judges to decide who the winner is But at the end of the day, you guys always crown the people’s champion So make sure you hit the comment and tell us who you think should win Summer rotation, so what does that mean to me? It doesn’t matter what trainers I’m wearing as long as they’re not talking to me, and not doing this at the bottom I mean, what I wanna convey is like your shoes actually complement your summer experience Every little, you know, graze or whatever, it’s from a scenario that you were in and I’m assuming that was a happy one. Even if it was a bad one, even if you’ve got a scuff, that’s something you can look back at And you could be like, man that was so jokes Shoes act as a memory bank, just as good as this camera that’s allowing me to record this footage to talk to you guys So summer rotation to me is all about timeless silhouettes, like the classics so we thought we shoot a lookbook in classic Rome Classic lookbook, so no narrative, no speaking, no words In an old Italian film you usually have a lady So I’ve met up my friend Ilaria, she’s come down so she’s gonna join me in this lookbook I am the master of black. Who said you can’t steeze black in the summer? Meeks is round the corner, we’re gonna have to, you know, set up for the first stage’s lookbook What you saying man, you good? Yeah bro, why you late again? I’m not late, you’re late What is this? This is my coffin Me and Meeks just landed in Nice The reason why I’m in Nice, the south of France is because I’ll be filming my Foot Locker summer rotation, a day in the life of Elias Okay maybe this might not the day in the life of me yet, but I’m a very aspirational person For my rotation, I picked these red and white Air Force 1 that I’m currently wearing right now the shoe that I always wear however, is the Vans Old Skool bro, I love those shoes The third pair of shoes that I got, I got the Air 1 Jordans The Air 1s I think they’ve just got, like this beautiful silhouette that I just love so much I’ve also got 97 TNs, which I think are absolutely amazing So memories are unpredictable, unpredictable much like British weather which you guys probably can’t tell, but it’s actually just started to rain! Why have you got me out here in the rain You see, first of all, you flew the coop, you come back, and now you’re questioning everything already. When did I leave?! Where were you in the last shoot? Why can I only hear silence and the pitter patter of raindrops hitting my umbrella? We have to make this work bro, chemistry is everything We haven’t got off to the best start See I get Shaq’s vision, like, me and Shaq although he…. gives a bit of waffle we’re telepathic out here Love you Love you too, it’s cool So obviously you’re from Rome, is there anywhere around here you’d recommend? It’s like, the vintage area of Rome Alright I’m just gonna capture you anyway Wait you already got it started Yeah I’m setting up the poles, do you want to give me a hand? What?

Get some shots of the butterflies then come out and record me coming out cause I see it in my head They’ve all gone, I don’t know how to get them out! So what’s this then? This is Santa Maria Maggiore Oh right, I will not be able to pronounce that My mum and dad, they were sitting in the dark one day And then, they were like, “may he appear” and I was there Bruv, why you always talking and not helping? When I don’t talk, people are like, “Dex what’s wrong?” When I talk, people want me to shut up. You guys gotta pick one There’s a balance of life I know there’s a balance, and do you know what the balance is? Friendship 3, 2, 1 Maybe someone should try holding me up I’m not gonna make it! Keep going a little bit Oh my god Literally just jump on it, and walk on it Yorkshire… Yorkshire God’s own county What happened? To what? What? I’m wearing a black suit with black Air Forces, Dex always has his own vision whether it’s black or not I’m gonna support it, I’m gonna facilitate it, we’re gonna make it bang You look like you’re in the bath tub I like the element of surprise So that was look number 1, just done.

I just wanna say to the camera – this whole situation here is completely mad Nah From a year and a bit ago, to helicopters, yachts, like… What are we doing bro? So if you guys haven’t copped already yeah, but a lot of the outfits for the shoots have literally been two outfits in one just some things have changed around, do you know what I mean But when I take off my shoes, I’m gonna put them next the previous two shoes I was wearing And I want you to capture that You know I like to end on a high note, so this sounds like it’s gonna be a cool shot There you go, we have a baked pie. Bob’s your uncle. How does Bob come from Robert? Shouldn’t it just be Rob? I swear it does. It does, isn’t it? Yeah, exactly, like Dick is short for Richard, which makes no sense I just allow them ones So we are in the last look of the day.

No… Yeah…. Beautiful people walking right behind me. Life is good Life is great I’m a beautiful person walking behind him Elias don’t do that fam Go on, give us a final “now then love” to that camera there This one here, to this one Give us a “now then love” No… now then love What a keeper It’s a wrap! Congratulations guys! But… did we get any shots of the shoes? Just a quick interruption, we wanna say a big big thank you to Foot Locker for making this episode possible. It’s an absolute mad ting Whether you’re a Hypebeast, a sneakerhead, 80s causal, or you just like a nice pair of trainers every once in a while Foot Locker’s got you covered Foot Locker has the best kicks, fact So as you guys might have already seen, all of us have such different styles So that means we’re all gonna be wearing such different trainers But do you know what, we’re all good. We have a link to all the trainers that we used in the description below And they sell black trainers What the hell is this guy talking about? Anyway, you might need to make sure that your summer rotation is on point Foot Locker has the maddest crep collection, where better to go? So thanks you guys, thanks Foot Locker for making this possible. Back to the episode! So thank you all for coming to our screening room, to show you guys our mini movies for Foot Locker, our short films Hey guys my name is Vlad, I’m a Russian who lives in Italy, and I’m an Italian YouTuber, I guess Hi I’m Eda Vendetta and I’m a content creator. I’m from Berlin Hey, so my name is Barbara, I come from Paris. I’m a fashion stylist for Hypebeast I’m Selma, and I’m coming from Paris. I would say that I’m a sneaker collector I’ve been invited today by Foot Locker to judge the PAQ boys’ lookbook This is Foot Locker video lookbook. Basically it’s all around summer rotation I don’t know, some might be artsy, some might be documentary style. I have no idea I’m very curious since all you guys have different styles, so like I’m really curious what you come up with I guess we should get into it, I’m up first I hope you enjoy it You are the world’s biggest flexer bruv This outfit, like the suit and the shoes, this is, how you call it, “peng” in London? Yes! That was nice Yeah I like everything about the helicopter, the TNs, and the suit You’re the biggest flexer, and you’re too damn pretty. But I enjoyed it So Shaquille, you’re up next I wrote something that I thought ties in every scene in the short films so it’s literally I literally wrote just for this There’s nothing but freedom, especially in my kingdom where happiness runs free And it isn’t so mild. Unleash your heart said the innocent child. Explore the world in its beauty. Have no fear, be yourself, be unruly. Be transparent Run free and run far Lay down in a bed of your thoughts Look at the sky, admire the clouds but seek the star Last but not least, before the summer breeze is deceased And so your mind is at peace Document every moment so you can reflect on your 3 month masterpiece Was really really cool, and who edited it? Seriously good job I really liked how you showed the sneakers because on Instagram everything is very clean and staged I love when you said about being transparent and you are wearing the see-through jacket, cause you know that in itself it’s art When I think summer, you think of like breaks, I don’t mean like lads holidays in Malaga I think about nice city breaks in cool cities. I’ve always wanted to visit Rome So I thought Rome would be a fantastic place to shoot a lookbook So yeah, this is my ode to vintage Italian media So that was my film, “Boyfriend Material” I never actually saw this phrase in Italian, but… Have you stitched me up? Wow it was very different, I didn’t expect that I like the sneakers you chose because it’s timeless It was awesome bruv No I have to admit that was so so sick A few of my favourite trainers ever since I was a kid have been Air Forces and TNs I found the best way for me to push my personality is to genuinely be myself I really wanna reflect that through this video Look out for some of the editing, listen to the music as well cause that was produced by one of my friends, Honeywood Six If it’s a bit of a horror film, I apologise So I loved how it was four completely separate different scenes. Honeywood went in on that mate It actually looked like a music video and the music is actually awesome To me it looks like how you describe London from your point of view I’ve had four heart operations, and I’ve been very familiar with face of death When I used to walk to school and walk home, I would walk through a graveyard And at times where I felt like I had no friends and I was alone, I would go there as a comfort place And it sounds weird but I didn’t feel alone there I tried to keep positive, but I am representing myself in this sense Bro, the music, the vibe, like It was really well done, so So thank you guys a lot for sharing your films with us Now I think we will have to talk between ourselves to just decide which one of you we choose so if you could just maybe leave us together Was that alright? Because I still like what actually he did, I completely agree on the fact that he can win First of all, thanks for the amazing videos you shared with us Towards the slightly forced unanimous decision of the winner It took us a while And the winner has black nails, Dex Fired up I mean we loved everything. You didn’t deny anything about it, how it can be like tough sometimes Let us know who you thought had the best film.

  1. Jheeez 1m views – cheers to everyone for supporting. Check out our other 1m views video with Adidas over here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wst0PNJz5SY

  2. I liked how Dex's video gave summer vibes of late nights, being out and about in the city, and getting into trouble w/o any of the stereotypical summer symbols (sun, bright colors, etc)

  3. Hey if your reading im just beginning my journey into content creation and fashionfilm plz support me on patreon if you think its worth it https://www.patreon.com/posts/26271271

  4. Nuh uh, Shaquille should have won. He actually gave the shoes sufficient screen time, showed his artistic skill through poetry that seamlessly went with the video. The transition between frames just flowed and unlike the others, although you were all great, there wasn't a hint of cringe. It was just all round refined and dope.

  5. this is like the first episode where all the boys put out equally amazing concepts, looks, and projects! so hard to judge

  6. After being on a binge of paq videos I can totally say that this is definitely one of my favourite like the amount of creativity the amount of genuine feelings and thoughts that comes with each of these films like it didn't feel like some commercial f**** felt like something coming from the deepest part of your life. The entire crew of Kyra is just amazing f**** amazing

  7. I feel ashamed when I hear Germans speak English, their pronunciation sucks.
    Or when she said “I like the sneaker you choosed” I cringed so hard omg

  8. vans old skools (word to shaq), reebok x pleasures collab, blk & wht checkerd slip-ons (shoutout E), and some custom painted vans i break out when im feelin saucy

  9. paq boos: guys u need to make a fashion film, max 1 min.

    paq boys: Let's travel to other countries and take a lil vacation

  10. I can't help every episode listening to the classical music you use, nice bit of Grieg this time, is someone on the team a musician?

  11. I feel like Shaq had the most natural looking video. Although Dex’s was good because it still flowed. Everyone else’s looked too staged.
