From an aspiring world recorder holder to an energetic dog, and disgruntled bee-amongst others- this film celebrates the way the brand’s crocodile transcends differences and divisions.
Behind the Design: The L001 and L002 Sneakers from Lacoste
This is an iconic sneaker lineup you need to add to your fashion-forward collection.
The L001 and L002 are two iconic sneakers that bring the extraordinary to everyday wear. Not only do these sneakers deliver the highest quality in style and comfort, but they offer cultural riffs to daily wardrobes on a worldwide scale. Both sneakers feature references and nuances, in which they complement the individuality of the wearer while, in turn, being a standout pair of footwear.
The L001 delivers a revolutionary take on Lacoste’s rich tennis heritage. Sporty yet genderless, these shoes offer not only a nod to the brand’s history but a modern take on a timeless silhouette that is a must-have for any wardrobe. These classic shoes bridge cultures and eras, in which the sneaker’s key details are derived from treasures within the Lacoste archive.
The spirit of the shoes feature a vintage yet retro shape and style inspired by the Rene- the first-ever shoe created by Rene Lacoste. As well, the angular triangular design on the sneaker’s upper draws inspiration from kinetic lines that typically run along a vintage 1980s racket’s handle.
Moving along, the L002 was created specifically for women and features a special court design.
Playing off of the L001, these shoes pay homage to Lacoste’s tennis history and the brand’s rich archive of clean, elegant design. However, these sneakers inspire a new generation, in which they offer the wearer a playful twist on a classic design. Curated for urban adventure these shoes are ready when you are. What we love about the L002 is its chunky outsole, a trend that has found its way back into the modern-day fashion realm.
Those interested in adding the iconic sneakers to their collection can shop both styles in various colourways.
