Before Le Coq Sportif started cranking out basketball pro models for Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah, they were one of the premier tennis shoe manufacturers in the 70s and 80s. Worn by Grand Slam champions like Joakim's father Yannick and the legendary Arthur Ashe, Le Coq tennis shoes were a staple in court performance footwear for several decades.
This month, the iconic Arthur Ashe pro model is being reintroduced in a colorful collection dubbed the "Rainbow Pack." The pack consists of suede-based shoes with contrasting white inner liners and soles. Colors include red, yellow, green, royal blue and navy. All styles are available now at retailers like Stockholm's SneakersNStuff.
