Did somebody say spring?

Last week marked the official start of spring which means it’s completely and utterly acceptable to have a complete shoedrobe overhaul, right? It’s time to push your beloved ankle boots aside to collect dust for the foreseeable future and make some room for something shiny and new. Warning: we take no responsibility for any excessive spending habits involved.

Le Coq Sportif: The Lowdown

Today, le coq sportif is one of the world’s most prestigious brands, renowned for its clothing, footwear and sporting equipment. This is the story of a different kind of brand, a story unlike any other. Launched in 1882 in a small factory in Romilly-sur-Seine, France, le coq sportif has evolved and established a uniquely authentic place in the market from over 130 years of experience.

Founded by Emile Camuset who was, above all, a sports fan, le coq sportif began by creating products primarily for sportsmen. This has continued to present the brand with both inspiration and challenge, and meeting those challenges remains at the heart of the product philosophy which sets le coq sportif apart, and has since the brand’s beginning.

The product range has a simple, almost timeless quality which is a fundamental part of its heritage. There is a clear bridge between the simplicity that characterised their first products and the ongoing inventiveness that keeps their new models resolutely modern – this is what makes le coq sportif who they are. So, are you ready for the le coq sportif lowdown?

With the statement style available in rose cloud, lichen, black and marshmallow, this is set to be a real crowd pleaser. The real question is, which hue is for you?

Before we get into the nitty gritty, can we just take a moment to appreciate A) how much we’re crushin’ on Cara Delevingne in this collab and B) how cute (and clever) the baby puma is. Irresistibly adorable marketing = nailed. We might even have to consider investing in our own baby puma as a Head Office mascot – what a way to banish the Monday blues, eh?

One of the three colours in the collection is Aruba Blue and we’re really loving this bold yet icy hue. This design comes with all of the iconic style touches you’d expect from Puma’s red hot design team, with the added bonus of coming with oversized cotton and ribbon laces. Use the cotton for a classic look and the ribbon for a serious statement and slightly unique twist.

Give these a chance before you brand them as forbidden territory because the Soft Fluo Yellow isn’t as scary as it seems. Bright? Yes, but equally cool as far as kicks are concerned. The matching translucent sole gives this style an extra urban edge and we’re loving the oversized eyelet detail. If you’re ready to stand out, these will certainly put a spring in your step.
