Lacoste as a brand has been grounded in the sports that birthed it - tennis, and the company’s growth is very well centered on this sport until today. But before we dive into their latest offerings it’s best we acquaint ourselves with the brand’s history first.
The company was first introduced in 1933 under the leadership of a famous French tennis player named Rene Lacoste. Rene was best known for the 10 Grand Slam titles he won and, as a result, was nicknamed “the alligator” by the media. This moniker granted to Rene sparked the idea of the now-iconic Crocodile logo.
Lacoste started out in the apparel category as they introduced a more comfortable design of the tennis shirt. This idea started out from Rene’s struggles with the sport’s strict attire rule of the long-sleeved top being too uncomfortable during play. It’s safe to say that Rene’s polo shirt design put the brand on the map as it is through this item Lacoste became a household name.
After the success of the polo shirt, Lacoste decided to become international and moved to the US in 1952. The polo then became the status symbol for the rich who loved sports. From then on, the brand widened its merchandise line to include accessories, jackets, perfumes, and shoes.
One of their many shoe offerings is the Lacoste Lancelle Slip-On. This model belongs in the brand’s SS17 collection and is an exclusive-for-women design that’s available in several colorways such as light grey, navy, and light pink.
- The Lancelle also comes in several lace-up versions.
- The Lancelle Slip-On is available in plain upper design, woven heel area design, and matte metallic design.
