Le Coq Sportif rugby boots
The label started life in 1948 not long after the war, when a Parisian wholesaler put a label into their sportswear which read Bonneterie Sportive Romillonne or in english Sportswear made in Romilly. The logo was a sketch of a rooster. In these early days the companies major claim to fame became their sports socks for rugby, football etc, with no stitching and elastic threads. So the age of Le Coq Sportiff and sports footwear was born.

By the late 50's they were exibiting at major trade shows such as the Versailles trade show. The company was also the supplier to the French Olympic team for the 17th Olympiades 1960, held in Rome.Following this sucess, the company continued its expansion into most of the sporting teams in France, including tennis and cycling.
