A partnership enabling them to discover the mountain sports environment, throughout business trips realized in french ski resorts, particularly the prestigious one Courchevel...
A beautiful range of products, issued from a unique conception developed and used since more than 50 years in their factory located in Troyes.
The design of LCF products is carefully processed by the creation team.
Selected reenforced areas, refined soles and asymmetrical models for an inimitable design.
Beyond the technical sock, the products proposed are inspired from the lastest fashion trends.
