The Lacoste L.12.12 Unlined Leather Trainers is available in US men’s and women’s sizing. For males, sizes are offered from 7 to 14. For females, they can order a pair from 5 to 10.5. Its leather upper provides a soft and breathable wear.

Barely exhibiting visible stitches on the upper, modest color schemes, and a pristine silhouette makes the low-top Lacoste L.12.12 Unlined Leather Trainers one of the quintessential examples of Lacoste smart-casual footwear. For those casual workdays or semi-formal gatherings, this lifestyle sneaker provides the essentials without standing out too much.

The upper of the Lacoste L.12.12 Unlined Leather Trainers consists of 100% leather, which allows for optimal comfort and durability. Its footbed is made up of molded polyurethane(PU) foam that provides cushioning.

The L.12.12 shoe collection was designed to pay homage to the original Lacoste pique polo shirt. Its name was inspired from the 12 prototypes of the shirt before releasing the one that was the most satisfactory. The qualities of the pique fabric made all the difference as it delivers versatility and an element of sophistication, which are the brand's trademark features.

One of the additions to the L.12.12 shoes is the Lacoste L.12.12 Unlined Leather Trainers. Released in 2018, this low-top is also inspired by the Lacoste polo, this time, reimagined in a deconstructed style.

For almost a century, Lacoste has been regarded as a global icon in lifestyle fashion due to its collection of fragrances, leather goods, clothes, eyewear, and other accessories. It started in 1933 and was founded by tennis player Rene Lacoste and businessman Andre Giller. The famous Lacoste logo originated from Rene Lacoste’s nickname on the court, the “Crocodile.”

The brand began its road to success when it introduced the polo shirt, which later became a staple part of everyone’s lifestyle fashion. Because of the materials used and its laidback style, many prominent tennis players such as Richard Gasquet, Novak Djokovic, and Andy Roddick made the Lacoste polo shirts as their go-to outfit.

After gaining worldwide recognition over the decades, the brand widened its product offerings. With a blend of class and versatility, these products became popular with the general consumer, especially its collection of lifestyle sneakers.

  • The price for this shoe at the brand’s official website is $125.
