    Hi,

    Does anyone remember which exact model Yannick Noah was playing after the TCO he used to win RG in '83 and before he switched to the Yamaha Secret 04 in the late 80's / early 90's?

    it's either one of the two, but can't quite recall which one:

    1. Le Coq Sportif TS25
    2. Le Coq Sportif TF40

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    I have a Gambit with a Cresendo paint job. It is really very poorly done. It's a decal put over the gambit cosmetics. When Adidas owned Le Coq Sportif they had the nicest clothes and really good tennis shoes. I guess Adidas is not going to do that with Reebok.

    Thanks for all the feedback guys, really appreciate it! I still have most of the noah clothing line from the 80s and 90s plus some secret 04 and want to complete my collection.

    I still have a couple of TCO, TXO, and TXM from 1983.

    Yes. Thankfully, they made him some shorts with a longer inseam.

    LeCoq. Great brand. Cool sticks. Great logo. I used to wear the shoe Ashe wore...and I had one blue and white tee shirt with the huge rooster in the triangle on the front. Wore that thing out.

    I had that shoe with the arch support on the out side. That was funky. My favorite LCS shoe was the mesh shoe that was 3/4 top with the blue triangle and white roster and a blue polyurethane sole.

    I also had the Ashe shoe. See the post above for my favorite LCS shoe. I wore the giant roster T-shirt in white and red.:)

    Exactly. And the leather was so soft and comfy, it conformed to your foot shape.. A friend mine says that today's high end shoe resemble the look of bowling shoes. Especially the Nike 2K10 and Adidas Barricade 6.
