Renowned sporting brands Footpatrol and Le Coq Sportif have collaborated on this redesigned R800 'Artisan' model. The R800 silhouette is used as the canvas, but is overlaid with a blue perforated leather material, with added textural and color detailing.

The shoe's artisan theme plays into the product's branding and packaging, with an accompanying rustic wooden box. Along with the shoe, the box acts as an all-encompassing sneaker kit, with wooden shoe trees and a shoe cream. To make sure the sneaker is in premium shape, a brush and buffing cloth is also included. The theme of craftsmanship is not only reinforced through the innovative packaging, the shoe's design also evokes these themes. The weathered leather sneaker, paired with hints of light brown further communicate an artisanal aesthetic.
