Who should buy the Lacoste Powercourt

Powercourt certainly represents the timeless design of a classic tennis shoe very well. While its sleek look is what people notice first, the Powercourt is also a great choice for:

  • people looking for comfortable tennis sneakers
  • those who want their sneakers to withstand all-day wear

Who should NOT buy the Lacoste Powercourt

The Lacoste Powercourt’s firm midsole does not provide the best cushioning. If you want a sneaker which fuses that clean tennis shoe aesthetic with the cushy comfort, consider the Adidas Cloudfoam Advantage Clean or the New Balance 300.

Wide footers rejoice 

Many wearers have commended the Lacoste Powercourt’s wide, generous fit. Going true to size is recommended, though narrow footers might need to go a half size to a full size down, depending on personal preference on fit.

Good but not great comfort 

Many people enjoyed the padding inside the upper of the Lacoste Powercourt, as well as the cushioning provided by its OrthoLite insole. A majority of the wearers agree that the sneaker is “very comfortable to wear all day.” However, the Lacoste Powercourt derives most of its comfort from its padding and footbed, with its firm rubber midsole providing little cushioning. The most common comment on the midsole is that it “feels bulky and stiff.”

Wear the Lacoste Powercourt with anything

As one reviewer said it best, the Lacoste Powercourt could be “dressy or casual.” The sneaker’s simple design features minimal branding which favors people who don’t like loud footwear with too many logos. However, variety is not a problem as the Lacoste Powercourt is available in several colorways to “fit anyone’s style” and for those who want some colors to accent their outfits.

Soles you can rely on

The Lacoste Powercourt features durable vulcanized midsoles which many deemed to “last you a long time.” The Powercourt’s outsole sports a multidirectional herringbone traction pattern that many have described as being “grippy on any surface.”

Not so stellar leather on the Lacoste Powercourt 

Several owners of the Lacoste Powercourt have reported significant creasing on the leather after one to two wears. They commented that the leather “wrinkled too easily.”

Lacoste: A tennis legend

Lacoste was founded by French tennis player Rene Lacoste, along with business partner Andre Gillier, in 1933. Originally called La Chemise Lacoste, the brand initially produced tennis shirts that remain popular to this day. Rene Lacoste was considered one of the best tennis players of his time, winning seven Grand Slam titles at the American, French, and British championships. The brand is indeed rooted in tennis history.
