Le Coq Sportif R900 ‘Monochrome’ (Black)

Le Coq Sportif R900 Monochrome Black 01

Le Coq Sportif present a new modernised retro running silhouette for 2015, seen here in monochrome black – the R900.

Inspired by their ’90s running back catalogue, Le Coq Sportif have created this new silhouette for the modern sneaker consumer. The design shares many similarities with the popular R1000 vintage runner, sitting on the same tooling, but the upper has been stripped back and brought up to date to fit in with current trends. It’s great to see LCS start to modernise their archive and heritage. They’ve done some excellent retroes since starting their come back, but until now we haven’t seen them do anything truly current. Let’s hope the R900 is the start of a big game plan from the French brand.

This black pair comes from the first release, a monochrome pack that features 3 colourways; black, navy and burgundy. All pairs will be exclusive to Hanon, dropping tomorrow for a reasonable £65 a pair.
