Founded by a famous French tennis player named Rene Lacoste, Lacoste is a luxury brand that was introduced in 1933. Rene had won 10 Grand Slam titles and was called the "alligator" by the media. This moniker inspired the brand's now iconic crocodile logo, but the business stemmed from Rene's idea of manufacturing a more comfortable tennis shirt. With strict rules in the sports then, Rene found the required long sleeve top too uncomfortable and that's when the now famous Lacoste famous cotton polo shirt was born.
The polo shirt was such a hit that it catapulted the brand to stardom. The company then moved to the US in 1952 and became a status symbol for the rich who were into sports. Following this success, Lacoste expanded their product line to include perfumes, jackets, and shoes.

It is a mid-top sneaker with classic chukka features that are crafted from premium chambray canvas upper with the traditional embroidered Croc branding on the sides.
