le coq sportif sneaks

Recommended Posts

i'm thinking of getting a new pair of sneakers, and i'm sick of seeing the nike swoosh so i'm thinking of heading for le cock for something different. anyone has recommendations?

the design is dope, but there is very little support for the sole. i'd like to see more of them here in america.

Last time I was in Paris the dudes told me La Coq doesn't make anything over an American 10.5. Of course he did it in a rude way do I told him he had a small peepee. sweet shoes though.

Proletariat, that's pretty interesting. do the french have small feet or something?

and i hope indestructible for skating also means that they'll last forever if all i do in them is walk regular. i'm actually more inclined towards their lo-cut sneakers--i've got a pair of high chuck taylors already, is why. I'll probably head to a store sometime, try on as many pairs as i can.

Indestructible for skating- which model, specifically?

I have a big problem with tearing holes in my leading foot really fast

because I drag really hard when I ollie. I'd appreciate the info.

I guess they do have smaller feet, I dunno. Geographically, I would say there are a lot more large Americans (and not just fat, but beefy) than the French or Asians for that matter. I don't know if it is because we eat different, or because people work out or what? I personally am just really tall so my feet are proportionate.

sorry dude, it was the late eighties since I wore them, so i don't remember. they weren't the model in the picture for sure. i should hope that their rugged-ness translates to all models.

edit: try getting the smoothest possible grip tape to avoid that ollie hole in your shoe.

i'm still searching for a shop that stocks them here (singapore)...only managed to find some limited ranges in women's shoes.

anyone with recommendations for internet stockists that do low prices and low shipping as well? shipping especially since it's usually the shipping that kills the price for me.

I can't really help with finding any, but I know that they have been distributing ranges in Australia and New Zealand for the last few years, and they go up to at least a US 13.
