We are excited to welcome the amazing Rooster logoed brand to Scorpion Shoes. Le Coq Sportif is a renowned French company for their clothing, footwear and sports equipment.

The owner who had a passion for sport started the company in 1882. Since then, Le Coq Sportif has become a prestigious brand recognised worldwide.

We have introduced 5 new styles to our trainer collection on our online website. Think retro, iconic, classic. The new models we have in stock represent these styles.

The Quartz Vintage trainers for men are an iconic model of the 70’s. This style is the definition of blue, bold and beautiful. The trainers feature a lace-up fastening with a durable rubber sole. The combining mesh and suede material creates a very trendy retro look.

Le Coq Sportif’s Wendon style is an iconic 60’s running shoe. Straying away from the white norm trainer, the black leather material adds a modern feel to this classic shape. We love the strip of suede on the toe-front adding an element of sophistication to this beautifully designed trainer.

The Eclat is a key member of Le Coq Sportif’s footwear collection. The trainer which has a thick sole features the beautiful porcelain print by the Parisian designer Clementine Henrion. The trainer which has a cushioned insole is one of our favourite Women’s Le Coq Sportif styles. The colourful print is perfect for summer and a special addition to your wardrobe if you like to stand out from the crowd!

Taking inspiration from the Tennis court shoe, Le Coq Sportif’s Agate Lo has a slim style featuring a cushioned insole. The style is a reflection of today’s modern casual trainers.

LCS R9XX is a new addition to the Le Coq Sportif shoe range. The main feature on this style is the Aerotop tongue. This technology which is back in style is perfect for the breathability of the feet. We love the white colour with the brand logo on the side, giving it a slick edge.

Anyone for tennis?

As the Wimbledon championships are underway we have one colour in our mind – WHITE. The tradition which has been implemented for over a century is one of the most famous dress codes in sports.

Not only is white a reflection of Wimbledon tennis but it is the grand slam colour of summer. In this post we are looking at our favourite whites.

So ace this summer season by avoiding breaking the rules and following our guide to our best white shoes in our current stock. And yes off-white and cream is off the court for our special feature.

Nike Air Force 1 ’07 Lv8

Birkenstock X Papillio Arizona Birko-Flor Platform

Nike Roshe One
