The 30th anniversary of the Arthur Ashe limited edition range celebrates the link between the brand and the tennis champion. Four key pieces make up the minimalist collection to include a cardigan, track top, polo and a modern interpretation of the original Arthur Ashe shoe. Tricolour trimming, the 1975 practice logo and emblematic le coq sportif logos can be seen throughout in tribute to the greatest tennis player.
The Arthur Ashe crafted clay model is made from rich suede with a contemporary sole, notched in expanded EVA. Contrast colours of ochre and white with overlock and perforated details, along with the champion’s original autograph, decorate the shoe. Each unique piece has been numbered by hand and made from the best in leather craftsmanship.
