Tailore 16 Review:
I bought the brown and everything about the shoe is perfect. Its very classy-casual. The only surprise was that I thought the color was a little bit darker based on the online pictures.
Great shoe
Marice LCR Review:
Happy I bought them
Love it!
L27 Review:
I have blue Chuck Taylors and wanted something similar in black. I'm usually a size 7, ordered a size 7 but it was a bit big. I had to return and re-order another pair half a size smaller. It was perfect!
Love this show!
L27 Review:
I love this shoe. It's very comfortable and goes with a lot. For being a sneaker, you can dress it up a bit. It looks like a classic shoe really. I have several colors but white is my fave. My only complaint is listed below. CON: the Lacoste logo on back of heel at sole can peel almost immediately. Seems like a manufacturer defect. As much as this shoes cost, I'd expect to darn logo to stay put!

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.
