OG footwear brand Le Coq Sportif has always paid homage to its French roots. Its latest pack celebrates European Heritage Days and an art form that certain parts of France, like Sèvres and Limoges, are known for: ceramics.
Le Coq Sportif has dressed two silhouettes for men and women, the LCS R1000 and the Ashe Prestige, respectively, in unique blue and white patterns that echo the world-famous céramique de Sèvres. The LCS R1000, with its overlays and underlays, verges on trompe l’oeil (visual illusion) and draws the eye all over the shoe. Both silhouettes utilize leather inner linings, white outsoles, and white laces.
While the Le Coq Sportif ‘Ceramique’ pack has landed overseas at Titolo and Hanon, there is no official word (and probably little chance) that the pack will come the States. The LCS R1000 retails for £115.00 and the Ashe Prestige retails for £89.00. It’s a shame that more LCS offerings don’t come Stateside because I’d have lots more roosters in my closet if they did…
