I bought these as a Christmas present for my boyfriend-I'm sick of him wearing tennis shoes on date night! These are cute and dressier without being uncomfortable for him.

These red Lacoste shoes have quickly become one of my favorite pair of shoes! They are attractive and yet stylishly fun. I wear them with jeans or slacks and always get compliments on them. They are most comfortable and great for walking. I bough them to wear on a cruise but am continuing to wear them throughout the fall. Anyone who likes red will certainly enjoy them!

About Lacoste

René Lacoste, a tennis legend, was born in France on July 2, 1904 and died on October 12, 1996. Nicknamed "the Alligator" by the American press, after he made a bet with the Captain of the French Davis Cup Team concerning a suitcase made from crocodile skin promised to him after winning an important match, René Lacoste took to wearing a crocodile image embroidered on his sport jackets.



In 1933, René Lacoste and business partner André Gillier, founded a company to manufacture the logo-embroidered shirt. Originally designed for Lacoste's own use on the tennis court, the brand soon expanded to produce a number of other shirts for tennis, golf and sailing, all offered in the first catalog from 1933.



This branded polo shirt revolutionized men’s sportswear and replaced the woven fabric, long-sleeved, starched classic shirts. The first Lacoste shirt was white, slightly shorter than its counterparts, had a ribbed collar, short sleeves with ribbed bands and was made of a lightweight, knitted fabric called "Jersey petit piqué."



The enduring legacy of the Lacoste brand has widely expanded over the years. Its famous crocodile emblem can now be seen on footwear and a wide variety of lifestyle accessories for men and women.
