The pair rework the LCS R800 for AW16.

Forget what you may have thought about where music marries the sartorial, because Kanye is not the industry’s only figure to put his moniker to a sneaker line-up.

The latest to tap this particular brand of extra-curricular activity? The French electronic producer DJ Yuksek, with his label Partyfine.

Collaborating with Le Coq Sportif on an updated version of the latter’s LCS R800, the model’s new look echoes the minimalist aesthetic sought throughout the music label’s visual campaign.

Boasting a silvergray exterior (mirroring the label’s autumn compilation), the shoe has been produced in smooth and perforated nubuck; the backs read ‘fine’ while the laces have been printed with the slogan <we are fine>.

Dropping in-store at the brand’s London flagship – plus a handful of premium sneaker boutiques – on the 29th October (this Sunday), the collaboration is completed with an accompanying mix from Partyfine, available via download for each fan who manages cop a pair of the LCS R800’s.
