HANON x Le Coq Sportif LCS R800 “The Good Agreement”

by Henrik Buzzi

Le coq sportif joins forces with Scottish retailer HANON, to offer a bold and original version of the LCS R800 utilizing some unique materials for this special make-up, which has been dubbed “The Good Agreement”. This collaboration takes its name from the English translation of ‘Bon Accord’, the motto of the city of Aberdeen, where HANON is located. It dates back to the middle ages, a period during which there was an alliance between France and Scotland. HANON and le coq sportif have thus taken their inspiration from this ancient alliance to create a new one, bringing together the best of France, Scotland and England.

The mix of unique materials, which is the signature of this LCS R800, finds its perfect expression through the union of three companies, each with a history that dates back over a century: le coq sportif, C.F. Stead and Halley Stevensons.

Based out of Sheepscar Tannery in Leeds, England, since 1904, C.F. Stead provide the three different lush suedes in a rich blue and light turquoise on the lower half of the upper, which contrast perfectly with the burnt orange on the upper half of this LCS R800. Thanks to know-how resulting from over 120 years of experience, the tannery still to this day produces suede for the most renowned luxury brands. In combination with the C.F. Stead suedes, HANON have also brought on board Halley Stevensons, who are specialists in waxed and weather resistant cotton fabric. From their historic Baltic Mill in Dundee, Scotland, where they were established in 1864, their water resistant, durable and breathable P200 Discovery fabric in a rich Cumin colour covers part of the upper.

A micro-perforated pig skin lining is applied to the inside of the shoe enhancing the all-round premium feel, and the insole features a special collaborative logo lock up printed on a stitched pig skin top layer which is then completed by way of a C.F. Stead suede laminated footbed. Additional details to symbolize the exchange of know-how and history appear in the form of embroidered dual branding on the tongues in the form of a neat Halley Stevensons woven tongue tab as well as further dual branding embossed on the heels of each shoe.Presented in a sleek black box printed with both logos, as well as a hang tag and four lace sets. Only way to be able to cop these is by registering your interest HERE. Registration for this release will close on Friday 25th of May at 09:00BST and then we will give successful registrants the opportunity to purchase

Brandshop x Asics Gel Vickka TRS

by Henrik Buzzi

Brandshop was founded in 2008 and for ten years has gone from a small showroom to the most important street fashion store in Russia.

A significant place in the range of our store is occupied by the Japanese AsicsTiger. Their processing of archival models invariably attract the attention of connoisseurs, and the famous GEL technology does not leave indifferent the supporters of perfection.

A perforated suede upper is reinforced with suede and nubuck overlays, with vegetable-tanned leather details providing subtle accents to the design. Most notable to the design is the shoe’s full leather heel stabilizer, a subtle reference to traditional shoe design featuring adidas trefoil branding, countered by solebox branding on the heel panel. It’s rounded off with full leather lining, leather branding details on the tongue and a crisp rubber sole.

The Pureboost DPR features a two-tone circular knit upper across the toebox, countered with premium nubuck panels across the eyestay, tongue and heel.
