Where other brands frantically sift through their archives to bring back their own classics, heritage footwear brand Le Coq Sportif looks to make modern standards in the new year. The longstanding French brand is set to release a brand new silhouette: the LCS R900. The sneaker undeniably draws on vintage runners of the past, yet also incorporates minimalist French sensibility into the design. This is evidenced in the upper, which is cleverly composed of articulated mesh to give off a ‘paneling’ effect. This layer is paired with smooth tonal suede overlays toward the clean white midsole. A refreshing direction for the resurgent brand, pick up this drop from Le Coq Sportif at select retailers in the coming weeks.
