Basketball dominates the US sneaker market, and with just a single NBA player on its roster, Le Coq Sportif isn’t one of the first names you’d expect to hear from a contemporary sneakerhead. This is also what makes their recent retros very attractive, because if you do happen to know that the Le Coq Sportif Flash debuted in 1990, there’s a good chance you have an above average sense of the history of our favorite footwear.
