Le Coq Sportif x Hanon – LCS R1000 “French Jersey”
This autumn French sporting brand Le Coq Sportif and Aberdeen’s Hanon j to present a collaboration on the LCS R1000 running shoe. Paying homage to Le Coq’s history in manufacturing apparel, the sneaker is inspired by vintage sportswear and features a tongue and lining made from plush cotton jersey material while the overlays of the LCS R1000.
Executed in a brick red and vibrant orange colorway, the sneaker has been stripped of all rubber elements. Instead, details appear in the form of a jersey-inspired lace, nubuck tongue patch, bar tack stitch detail and laminated calfskin footbed, which, safe to say, makes the shoe very vegan unfriendly. Panelling which are usually synthetic, have been replaced with rich pigskin nubuck and a closed mesh upper.
The Le Coq Sportif x Hanon LCS R1000 “French Jersey” will be available from 5th December.
