Lacoste 80th anniversary footwear

March 21, 2013

To commemorate their 80th Anniversary, Lacoste Footwear have launched a new range that reinvens the symbols, materials and codes that epitomise the Lacoste style. The original René Lacoste tennis shoe was designed in 1963 and has been a cornerstone of the brand’s identity ever since.

This celebratory collection takes this model and produced three distinct styles using highly considered materials and detailing. We begin right back at the start with a beautiful recreation of that original shoe and it’s one that’s elegant in its simplicity. The canvas has been re-designed to recapture the original fine gauge herringbone material which sits atop an all rubber soul with herringbone detail and a rubber toe cap.

The next models are both designated ‘crafted’ which gives a clue of what to expect – the ‘crafted perf’ also features an unlined premium leather upper, but this time with a herringbone perforated vamp. A leather in-sock features the 80th Anniversary logo designed by Peter Saville and the shoe is finished with a striking crafted leather sole with embossed crocodile detailing.

The standard ‘crafted’ model keeps many of the same details but does away with the perforated panel and swaps the simple white for a dark inky blue which compliments the leather sole perfectly. Each style will be available in limited numbers, so for more information on the brand and to find your nearest stockist, go to the website here: Lacoste.
