Lacoste Joggeur History

Global fashion label Lacoste started out in 1933 with tennis player Rene Lacoste partnering with businessman Andre Gillier to come up with short-sleeved polo shirts that are comfortable to don while playing tennis. When Lacoste started engaging in the apparel business and launched the brand, he thought of introducing a short-sleeved version of a tennis shirt as an alternative to the white-collared long sleeve shirt used in the game at that time.  This move by the company founder and tennis champ paved the way for what we know as the classic Lacoste tennis polo.

 The brand is also recognizable through its signature Crocodile logo which represents dexterity in playing the tennis sport. Rene Lacoste was also called Crocodile during his tennis playing days which is why he has made the embroidered Crocodile logo on the brand’s shirts and polos as the iconic symbol for the brand. 

While the company has long been known to be a retailer of shirts, bags apparel, and fragrances, it was only in 1985 that it entered the already growing footwear market. The first footwear coming out of the global fashion brand is the white Lacoste tennis sneakers. The new Lacoste shoes, which were manufactured and designed in France,became an instant hit that the brand expanded into making deck shoes in 1986 and walking shoes in 1988. Since the success of these retro sneakers, the brand has been dropping new footwear designs that reflect the luxury lifestyle and aesthetics of the French fashion brand.

The Lacoste Joggeur, a running-inspired kick as its name implies, is a low-top sneaker that basts of a nubuck leather upper and soft leather inner lining. The shoes have a retro appeal that makes it a favorite among stylists and fashionistas wanting simplistic silhouettes that blend instead of overpowering what the person is wearing.
