I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to head to Paris for HANON and with Le Coq Sportif to attend the Le Coq Sportif x LOOK Cycle Event, which was held at the Vélodrome de Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines.Read More
With a particularly busy end to the year, and closely following the hanon x Asics Gel-Lyte III 'Solstice', hanon have joined forces with French sportswear brand Le Coq Sportive and are proud to present a collaboration on the LCS R1000 running shoe. Renowned for a tradition in knitted sportswear, Le Coq Sportif emerged from humble beginnings in 1882 as a manufacturer of cotton jersey where founder Emile Camuset would produce denim shirts for his friends and sporting enthusiasts. 130 years on, Le Coq Sportif is synonymous with all major sports from rugby, cycling and football and is globally recognised today as the original French sports brand.
For this project we pay homage to Le Coq’s history in manufacturing apparel. We took inspiration from vintage sportswear and have applied a plush cotton jersey material to the lining and tongue whilst the original make up of synthetic overlays has been switched out to a rich pigskin nubuck and closed mesh upper.
Executed in a brick red and vibrant orange colour way, the shoe has been stripped back of all rubber components and attention to detail appears via a jersey inspired lace, nubuck tongue patch, bar tack stitch detail and a laminated calfskin footbed.
Tonal embossing appears by way of the Le Coq Rooster on the medial side of the shoe whilst our hanon flame is detailed on the heel. Each pair comes complete with three lace sets.
The hanon x Le Coq Sportif LCS R1000 'French Jersey' is set to launch in-store on Thursday 3rd of December 5-7PM, and will launch online on Friday 4th of December at 2PM GMT, priced at £100.
