Le Coq Sportif
Le Coq Sportif is a French sports brand founded over a hundred years ago. In 1882, Émile Camuset, a French clothing maker, decided to make jerseys for cyclists, footballers and rugby players. These jerseys, unlike the clothing of the time, were designed specifically for various sports. This laid the foundation for the Le Coq Sportif brand.
In the 1930s, the French brand came out with their first catalog. This was full of jerseys for cyclists. Le Coq Sportif focused specifically on sportswear items. From 1912 to 1972 the brand was the official clothing brand for several French sports, including tennis.
Now, about 140 years later, Le Coq Sportif is still a well-known brand among athletes. With their classic silhouettes and progressive materials, they combine their years of knowledge in sports with innovation. So too in the Le Coq Sportif T1000 'Nineties', recently dropped at Footdistrict.
The story behind the release
The T1000 'Nineties', as its name suggests, takes its inspiration from the 90s. For this release, Le Coq Sportif went to visit Driss, Flo, Yace and Mounir. They are four pioneers from the French sneaker scene. The brand traveled to the cities of Paris, Lyon and Marseille to talk about the release of the LCS T1000 here.
Driss, Flo, Yace and Mounir all have a special bond with the T1000 model. For them, the sneaker is more than just a shoe; it is a means of identity that connects enthousiasts in the sneaker culture.
Their vision mirrors the journey of Arthur Ashe, the first black man to win a Grand Slam title. He too was part of the Le Coq Sportif family and shone light on diversity within tennis. The LCS T1000 embraces the history of French tennis and is a bridge to the next generation.
