We at Soleheaven love a release that has a powerful meaning and inspiration behind them, it gives the sneakers a bit of character and it always feels good when someone asks you about what you are wearing and you can give them a genuine reason as to why they are designed that way, plus it makes you sound like you know your stuff so there are some extra kudos for you.
Le Coq Sportif is a renowned French brand through and through that shows rich heritage and pride in every collection they make. Especially with their iconic Rooster or Coq emblem, which is a symbol of the French Revolution and is prevalent in French history. This pack is inspired by the French Alps and the atmosphere that filled the area in the 70's with the old mountaineering boots.
This pack consists of two standout silhouettes, the 'Icons' which is a low top that is inspired by the Noah Comp low & the iconic 'Arthur Ashe' which is subsequently a Mid, both are inspired by the French Alps and the vibes that filled the area in the 70's, especially in relation with the old mountaineering boots that hikers would wear, with the vibrant red flecked rope laces, the D-lacing system and the marshmallow white leather, they have delved deeply into the aesthetic of the sneaker to emulate an outdoor style on a court sneaker.
The colour scheme provides a perfect option for the summer with a clean white upper, that has a spritely splash of colour on the lacing and is finished with a gum sole that contains white flecks. The sneakers themselves have a very sleek look to them with embossed branding and an all white appearance.
