Introducing the newest member of the L.12.12 family, Lacoste releases a new mid-cut sneaker — the ultimate street-style bait this season

When you’ve got your legacy down pat, rendering that trademark aesthetic in numerous forms of wearables comes as a breeze. Case in point: Lacoste’s iconic L.12.12 polo shirt has inspired products from fragrances to leather goods, watches, and now — a new mid-cut sneaker. 


The minimal aesthetic of the L.12.12 functions as an ideal blank canvas for Lacoste, making this latest addition a seamless, effortless addition to your wardrobe. Championing comfort and sophistication, the new mid-cut sneakers are crafted with pristine leather, with breathable punched holes on the vamp of the shoe. The L.12.12 comes in the two colours that can do no wrong — black and white. Featuring cupsole construction and piqué lining, the design is a clear tribute to the French label’s roots in tennis.

The Lacoste L.12.12 Mid-Cut Sneakers are priced at $229 per pair. Available in mid-August at Lacoste boutiques in Singapore.
