Le Coq Sportif "Blanc Alpin" Pack

by Henrik Buzzi


The Le Sportif “Blanc Alpin” Pack features three silhouettes; the Turbostyle, AA Mid, and Icons, with the Icons being a new model for the season. The Le Coq Sportif Icons is inspired by two iconic pairs from their tennis archives, the Arthur Ashe and the Noah Comp, and it has the sole of the first, with the upper style of the latter. The upper on this version comes in textured leather, with outdoor vibes channeled through the laces, eyelets, and rubber sole unit.

Next up in the pack is the AA Mid which is what happens when the Arthur Ashe meets a high-top mountain shoe. Continuing with the tennis style of the Arthur Ashe, we see perforations throughout, as well as the usual heel overlay and sole, but again, outdoor vibes in the form of the laces, eyelets, and rubber sole unit.

Last but not least, the Turbostyle. An icon from Le Coq Sportif’s 1980’s running archives, and at the time, it was designed for marathon running, with it’s unique and particularly comfortable sole. This particular version continues the “Blanc Alpin” theme and combines textured resistant technical nylon with full grain leather overlays, and is finished off with contrasting laces, debossed logo, metallic studs, and again, that speckled rubber sole unit. Now available at selected retailers such as hanon.
