Anyone who knows tennis knows that the Le Coq Sportif Arthur Ashe is a big deal. French brand Le Coq Sportif along with Hanon are bringing the tennis shoe first worn by Arthur Ashe in the 70s and 80s into the 21st century.

Arthur Ashe was one of the all-time greatest American tennis players and was also a champion of civil rights and numerous social causes. The Le Coq Sportif Arthur Ashe has done its due-diligence in representing the original shoe and also features a few modern touches, such as Ashe's signature along the side panel and the Le Coq Sportif logo on the heel.
