Limited Opium x le coq sportif LCS R1000 go on sale in Dubai

There’s nothing like a fresh pair of kicks, especially when they’re so exclusive that only 16 people people can boast about them.

Le coq sportif has joined forces with Parisian store Opium to launch a new collaboration and brand-new version of the LCS R1000, and there are only 16 of them in Dubai. Talk about limited edition.

Only available at the Concept store in City Walk, the limited-edition sneakers are inspired by Freestyle, a pair of mountain bike shoes straight from le coq sportif’s archives.

The Opium X sneakers pay tribute to the youth of the brand's three founders, Mounir, Yace and Farid. From the looks of them, they’ve done a stylish job.

As for details, the sneaker and street art-loving trio care as much about the features as the fabrics, which includes premium smooth leather, period nylon, micro-perforated suede and a nubuck base.

The cement grey heel is a reference to “L’écoute”, the stone sculpture in the heart of Châtelet Les-Hallesm, where the trio would meet up before hitting the streets of Paris.

Splashed with colourful yellow, purple and pink inserts, what sets the sneakers apart from the rest is that its outer sole is phosphorescent, meaning it lights up like a glow stick.

Everyone will know the sneakers are limited-edition thanks to the le coq sportif and Opium logos embroidered in gold on each of the sneakers' tongue, and in purple on the back of each shoe.
