Lacoste releases L.12.12 inspired footwear collection

Paying homage to its classic polo shirt, French clothing label Lacoste has released a footwear collection inspired by the L.12.12.

The Lacoste L.12.12 polo shirt, created by brand founder and tennis player Rene Lacoste in 1933, is instantly recognisable with its crocodile logo, two-button placket and clean sporting lines.

The pique cotton fabric of the polo also claims to have better ventilation and the ability to enhance movement and improve performance while looking contemporary.

These aspects have been translated into the shoe collection. The shoes sport a simple and clean design with details that draw from the polo, including an extra soft premium leather upper for enhanced movement. A moulded insole provides added comfort and breathability.

The Lacoste L.12.12 footwear collection ($199) comes in five colours including white, black, grey, green and red. The shoes are available at Lacoste Wisma Atria and selected Lacoste boutiques.
