le coq sportif x Footpatrol Éclat “Macaron Edition”


After some unforeseen troubles with the Saucony collaboration, Footpatrol moves forward with their next calendar collab release for 2013. Working with Le Coq Sportif Eclat for a second time, TeamFB draws inspiration from the very popular desert, Macaron. They focused on three specific colors from the meringue-based confection to create the eye pleasing make-up you see above. Just like the premium and elegant Macaron, this edition of the Eclat is dressed in lush pigskin suede embodied by a perforated toe box top, tongue and side paneling. Smooth satin accompanies the pigskin for the ankle lining and you’ ll see hints of gold and black throughout the silhouette with some 3M placement on the shoe; Even the laces get laced with an accent. To top off the make-up a soft and comfy gum-out-sole completes this catchy color-way that makes the Eclat look absolutely stunning. This one will be a definite must have shoe release for 2013, and without a doubt, one of the better collaborations for 2013 in my book. Unfortunately, we only get one photo to tell the story for the inspiration, but honestly, this photo says it all. Well done Footpartol, well done. More info in the coming days as the launch of the shoe will be June 1st, 2013.
