Bottom line

User reviews:

The Lacoste Masters Cup is available in both men’s and women’s sizing. Although generally running true to size, several reviews mention that the forefoot feels a little wide and would recommend going half a size down.

Traditional lace-up closure with metal eyelets allows the wearer to tighten or loosen the fit depending on one’s snug preference.

An Ortholite® footbed, with anti-microbial properties, provides cushioning while keeping one’s feet feeling fresh. Padded tongue and collar give an added cushioning comfort to keep feet supported.

A classic sneaker silhouette, coupled with basic color blocking, makes this addition to Lacoste’s growing roster of casual sneakers easy to style. Throw on a button-down pale blue polo tucked into a dark brown khaki with a brown leather belt and some blue tonal hue Lacoste Masters Cup on feet. If you want to look comfortably chic when hanging out with the girlfriends for brunch, you can try on a short lace dress under a denim jacket and the white/off-white colorway of the Masters Cup.

In keeping with the tennis fashion sense but with a modern twist is the predominantly leather upper and suede reinforcements on the toe cap and heel.

Depending on the colorway, some of the Lacoste crocodile logos are either an embroidery patch or debossed. Lacoste wordmark in gold foil lettering is imprinted on the heel for that pop of shine.

As a professional tennis player himself in the 20s, René Lacoste, found the official attire to be restrictive. Once he retired in the early 30s, Lacoste and his pal, French knitwear manufacturer, André Gillier, started the company La Chemise Lacoste in 1933.

The crocodile logo has been a personal emblem of Lacoste during his active years and became the brand’s iconic logo. 

Together, Lacoste and Gillier manufactured a revolutionary tennis polo shirt that provided the utmost ventilation, which was a result of the founder’s innovation brought about by his love for the sport.

That one polo and symbolic crocodile emblem revolutionized beyond the tennis sport and has gained its own fashion status as an elegant, clean, and comfortable piece of casual wear.

In the 60s, the company expanded its product line to perfumes and leather goods. By the 80s, it launched sunglasses and tennis shoes. And the company has been unstoppable since then.

Lacoste Masters Cup stays true to its tennis heritage of casual elegance. Taking its vintage Portofino model and modernizing it to fit the sneaker aficionados of today.

  • Mesh lining references Lacoste's sports heritage and elevates the design further.
  • This features a cupsole for more support and cushion.
