Hands down one of the best collabs this year in terms of material quality, craftsmanship, and design came out of France. Barcelona’s LimitEDitions and le coq sportif pulled out all the stops and created the Made in France Eclat ‘Patachou’.
Limited to only 80 pairs and constructed by the highly skilled artisans at le coq sportif, the shoe was absolutely majestic. It flaunted a premium waxed leather upper, a goat leather inner lining, and showcased the intricate French textile art of bobbin lace making. The LimitEDitions crest was lasered into both toeboxes and all of that goodness sat atop a bright red outsole.
The shoes came packaged with wooden lasts, supplies to keep the waxed leather correct over time, and a gorgeous leather pouch that housed the extra waxed laces. More premium than premium if you ask me.
