We flagged these up some time back, but after some weeks, the Le Coq Sportif x Hanon Arthur Ashe Premium trainers are now available to buy.
If you missed them back then, this is a remake of the classic 70s/80s tennis shoe, made for US tennis legend Arthur Ashe. It's a premium edition too, made to high standards at the Le Coq Sportif factory with the support of the Arthur Ashe Foundation in New York, which will also get some of the profits. It's also limited to just 100 pairs worldwide. So you might want to get in quick if you want your size.
An interesting collaboration using a minor classic of days gone by – the Le Coq Sportif x Hanon Arthur Ashe trainers.
As you might have guessed, this is a Hanon retail exclusive, with the shoe a remake of the original tennis shoe of the 1970s and 80s, designed (as you might also have guessed) for the US tennis icon Arthur Ashe. It's a no-nonsense trainer with perforated detail for breathing, a soft lining for comfort and premium upper for 'extra resistance'. It also features the original Le Coq Sportif 'practice' logo on the heel and the Arthur Ashe signature on the side.
These should be available this month on the Hanon site, as yet no price details have been announced. Another shot of the shoes from a different angle over the page.
