The low-top Lacoste Carnaby Evo Trainers are available in women's and men's sizes. The lace-up closure ensures that the foot is kept in place despite different activities while the pearlized synthetic uppers with perforated quarter detailing supplies reliable support as well as improved breathability.
Sporting all the features of a classic tennis trainer, the Lacoste Carnaby Evo is the brand's modern reiteration of this classic. The leather material gives the upper a clean, crisp, and sleek look, reminiscent of its founder Rene Lacoste's style.
Because of its low-top silhouette and minimalist overall look, users can pair these with just about everything. Those strolling at the mall or running errands can simply pair these with shorts or jeans, but they can also take it to dressier events like a dinner out or clubbing by pairing it with trousers or dresses.
Lacoste, because of its tennis heritage, has mastered the art of making a tennis sneaker. And just like most, nothing beats the combination of a leather upper and rubber outsole in a streamlined and low-top silhouette. The crocodile stamp on the side translates to more than just branding. It also connotes that it bears the reputation of being premium, comfortable, stylish and durable.
The Carnaby Evo is from the brand Lacoste, a household brand that built its legacy from its tennis roots. The man behind the company is Rene Lacoste, a notable French tennis player. In 1933, the athlete felt frustrated with the current tennis outfit as long-sleeve shirts and trousers are too restrictive.
It pushed Lacoste on entering a new venture, in the world of fashion, through his designs of polo shirts. The brand enjoyed its success as the market, whether they are fans of the sport or merely someone who enjoys the style, were able to choose from a wide array of colors that it comes with.
In 1985, the brand expanded its product offerings and also produced tennis sneakers. Until now, its tennis heritage remains intact despite also delving into athleisure. One of its recent designs is the Lacoste Carnaby Evo, a tennis-inspired sneaker.
- The Lacoste Carnaby Evo is part of the brand's Fall/Winter 2017 collection.
