From the time French tennis star Rene "The Crocodile" Lacoste designed the first short sleeved polo shirt for tennis players in 1926, the Lacoste name has been synonymous with innovation and elegance in men's sportswear. That tradition of quality continues today with Lacoste's "Premium Court" pack, which updates several heritage styles from the 1980's with premium contemporary materials. Waxy suedes, teamed with premium Nappa Silk leather and authentic sport-inspired features, make these designs the ultimate in understated casual elegance.
The Turbo 2, conceived as a hard court tennis shoe, is a demi-cut Nappa Silk leather upper a waxy suede collar and leather strap. The interior is lined with a molded leather insock and the dynamic cupsole delivers excellent grip while providing comfort and support. A detailed embossed crocodile logo adds a fine finishing touch.
Launched in 1986 as a clay court shoe, the Half Court is a demi-cut upper that features Nappa Silk leather layered on top of waxy suede with a soft leather lined interior. The cupsole's croc-scale like tread adheres to even the slickest of surfaces and an embossed crocodile logo graces the tongue.
The Straightset CRF, while still court-inspired, is more of a lifestyle silhouette. The simply styled Nappa Silk leather upper features clean lines and subtle details like waxy suede heel strip and collar. An embossed crocodile logo brands the sides and an outsole that duplicates the pique' from the signature Lacoste polo finishes this quality style.
