Tennis-inspired sneaks are trending hard at the moment, and Le Coq Sportif is known for some of the cleanest versions in the game. For the summer season, the iconic French brand is bringing back the classic Noah Comp model in a crisp “French Clay” colorway – an all-white upper with clay-colored accents – in a limited drop of 135 pairs.
The “clay” colorway on the full-grain leather shoe is inspired by the annual French Open tennis tournament, traditionally held on a clay court every May. As an added detail, the rooster logo on the upper is executed in a woven blue-white with red stitching.
And just in case you’re not a tennis fan, the Noah Comp model owes its name to pro tennis player Yannick Noah, who won the French Open in 1983. One of the coolest pro athletes on the planet, Noah has been a brand ambassador for Le Coq Sportif for over 30 years now and also serves as acting captain of the French Davis Cup team (we have included a pic of the legend holding it down court side below).
The Noah Comp French Clay will be available from May 1, 2017, in select premium stores including Titolo, with a EUR 110.00 price tag.
