Awesome shoes!!!
Rayford Brogue Review:
These shoes are great! I was worried they might not fit because I couldn't try them on prior, but it worked out. The "pay my way" option is really convenient too. Overall I am very satisfied.
Comfy and style too
Sherbrooke Hi 10 Review:
I assumed a half size smaller because of Euro brand and I made the right assumption. I normally wear a 10.5 US and I ordered 11. The extra half size provided the comfort I was seeking. Comfortable to walk in and stylish too!
A "must have" shoe
Sherbrooke Hi 10 Review:
This shoe is very lite and comfortable... looked great with jeans. I danced all night in them.

L27 Review:
Bought as a gift for one of my sons who as a business man prefers a little more of a conservative style. And he really loves these.
This is a great pair of shoes
Misano 31 Review:
This is a great pair of shoes, they are very stylish as well as being quite comfortable. I have received quite a few compliments when I wear these shoes. I would definitely buy these shoes again.

About Lacoste

René Lacoste, a tennis legend, was born in France on July 2, 1904 and died on October 12, 1996. Nicknamed "the Alligator" by the American press, after he made a bet with the Captain of the French Davis Cup Team concerning a suitcase made from crocodile skin promised to him after winning an important match, René Lacoste took to wearing a crocodile image embroidered on his sport jackets.



In 1933, René Lacoste and business partner André Gillier, founded a company to manufacture the logo-embroidered shirt. Originally designed for Lacoste's own use on the tennis court, the brand soon expanded to produce a number of other shirts for tennis, golf and sailing, all offered in the first catalog from 1933.



This branded polo shirt revolutionized men’s sportswear and replaced the woven fabric, long-sleeved, starched classic shirts. The first Lacoste shirt was white, slightly shorter than its counterparts, had a ribbed collar, short sleeves with ribbed bands and was made of a lightweight, knitted fabric called "Jersey petit piqué."



The enduring legacy of the Lacoste brand has widely expanded over the years. Its famous crocodile emblem can now be seen on footwear and a wide variety of lifestyle accessories for men and women.
