A futuristic new shoe by heritage brand Lacoste is designed to put you through your paces


Jean René Lacoste was, arguably, the original sports style icon, who brought a touch of class to the tennis courts back in the ’20s and ’30s. Who would have thought that the niche brand founded by “the Crocodile” nearly a century ago would have grown into the global fashion empire it is today? Now, Lacoste Footwear has unveiled its most futuristic design to date in the new Active 4851, a dynamic gender-neutral sneaker loaded with performance-enhancing materials. Named using the co-ordinates of the first-ever Lacoste product factory in France, this modern sneaker seamlessly blends fashion and function.
