23 . 04 . 16

Our store in Barcelona, will release on April 23rd with le coq sportif the ECLAT ROSE FRIENDS & FAMILY, a premium and limited edition of the ECLAT, the legendary model of the French firm. These exclusive sneakers are a continuation of the ECLAT ROSE EXD, that were launched in 2014. Again, they pay tribute to the rose, one of the most representative flowers of Barcelona. It is for this reason that the truly symbolic Saint Jordi has been chosen as the release date, as it is thought of the day when roses are the main protagonists. Both le coq sportif and limitEDitions will launch this special edition to reward their most loyal customers and fans, hence its name Friends & Family.

The ECLAT ROSE FRIENDS & FAMILY, following its predecessor, is once again made with waterproof Premium Nubuck, simulating the effect of dewdrops on the rose petals. However, this time, the shoe is crafted in an elegant burgundy color. Embroidered at the back of the shoe you will find a burgundy rose and the green leaf limitEDitions logo. The packaging follows the sneakers premium line and is presented in a carved wooden box for a vintage look, each one of them numbered as part of the limited edition.

The entire set results in a unique and original pair of sneakers, true to the sport-chic essence of the French brand. The collaboration between le coq sportif and limitEDitions beautifully comes together paying a tribute to the rose again, and to a very special Saint Jordi Day.

GOLA X LIMITEDITIONS – WHERE TWO CITIES ARE UNITED

Harnessing the history of two great footballing cities, Gola Classics and limitEDitions team , have combined to create our first ever collab.

Drawing inspiration from the historical city shield of Barcelona, the first one used by "Barcelona Football Club" and Manchester coat of arms, also used by Manchester United at the same time, taken from the time of Gola’s inception date of 1905, this ‘Footballing Greats’ pack offers three no frills Harrier styles that focus purely on traditional manufacturing techniques and the finest materials.

Wools are hand selected from Manchester woollen textile manufacturing company, Mallalieus, and the trainers themselves have been handmade in Manchester. The quality leather uppers are offset by contrast wool linings and
a custom two-part insock design. For those not in the know, Harrier is Gola’s most iconic trainer design, born of humble beginnings in 1968 and today holding flagship status for the brand.

Of the three options, the Barcelona themed style features a rich tan leather upper, soft grey wool lining and gold Gola branding call outs. The limitEDitions fleur-de-lis emblem is subtly added to the lace catcher and lace keeper where it has been laser etched into the leather. If you turn to the back of the shoe the Barcelona shield has been applied with a print emboss. Other notable features include a quality triple stitch to the upper panels and fine 3M gold underlay on the Gola wingflash detail.

The Manchester themed style, in black leather, more akin with the Manchester skyline, is the perfect counter part to
the Barcelona themed option. Again featuring a soft grey wool lining, gold Gola call outs and fleur-de-lis detailing but with the Manchester coat of arms as a print emboss to the heel.

As all of them, it comes with an extra waxed premium cotton laces in flat and round options, in matching and contrast colorways and metallic old brass lace tips.

All styles comes into an original packaging from Gola Made in England series.

Finally, there’s also a special ‘friend and family’ edition, but unfortunately this is exactly what it says on the tin, limitEDitions team has an exclusive list of sneakerheads who are listed to give a home to these beauties.
Featuring the Barcelona shield to the right heel and the Manchester coat of arms to the left, this option has an ‘out there’ British tweed upper, contrasted with rich brown leather trims and gold Gola call outs. The linning of this premium edition comes in high quality goat leather as a commemoration of the chinese horoscope in 2015 ( Year of the goat ).

Officially released on December 29 2015 at limitEDitions Barcelona.Gola has made a combined total of 110 pairs of the three styles in celebration of the brand reaching its 110th birthday.
