Here is a closer look at the Le Coq Sportif Flash styled by Crooked Tongues. CT has made the silhouette their own with inspiration from the Eurostar and early 90s cross-cultural sneaker exchanges between France and the UK.
Despite its current theme, the project actually started as an ode to Raekwon and Ghost Face Killah’s style in the early 90s, specifically the Polo SNOW BEACH jacket.
The end result is a gum soled sneaker, which is a departure from the usual LCS Flash with its use of genuine suede and a non-shimmering mesh. Adding to the style are 3M detailing and carbon fiber on the heel.
A release date is set for the 7th of December through Crooked Tongues with a wider yet selective release going global on the 14th.
