French sportswear label Le Coq Sportif and Aberdeen based sneaker shop HANON have teamed up to release the LCS R800 retro runner, 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.
Built with premium materials, the retro runner features a micro-perforated pig skin lining that’s 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.
