Three words were used by Lacoste to describe their design focus for their Spring/Summer 2012 collection: Classic, Special, and Unique. Developed by Lacoste’s leading creative minds in their Paris headquarters, Mark Godwin and Pierre Garnier, the fruit of their labor represents the pinnacle of their sneakers to date. Coined the Lacoste Essential Design (LED) collection, these tennis and sailing-inspired shoes were made for people who love a good sneaker and respect a pair whose quality only get better with time. Each pair is hand-stitched using quality materials and together they form a collection with a diverse range of silhouettes and colorways with accents that are both simple and elegant.
