With the Explorateur line, French athletic brand Lacoste puts the original design philosophy of its founder René Lacoste to a new purpose, catering to the needs of modern urban explorers. Based on the label’s rich tennis heritage from the original 1963 “René” silhouette to the “Half Court” as an 80s evergreen, the Lacoste Explorateur Craft combines classic DNA with state-of- the-art tooling.
A perforated mesh bootie and microfiber insock wrap around the foot, while waxed tonal laces add elegant details. And to let you answer the call of the city during spring and summer, the shoes use a durable nubuck leather upper with perforations for breathability and lightweight wearing comfort.
The Lacoste Explorateur Craft is a part of the brand’s Spring / Summer 2018 line-up and will be available via lacoste.com.
