Net a classic

THE most famous French tennis player of all time, René Lacoste has become a household name with his company La Chemise Lacoste, which he founded in 1933.

The crocodile logo company, so used after René was named by American reporters has symbolised style and class, and the new range of training footwear form the French brand, are exactly that.

The Limere range of trainers, which come in burgundy (2) and black (3) are quite beautiful, with a quality leather upper and a contoured sole acting as a reminder of old fashioned cycling shoes, with a thin sole, and heal bradding.

The laces boast a metal Lacoste badge, with a cotton name sown on the outside of the eyelets.

Tight cut around the ankle, these cushioned sole shoes are a stand-out product.

Leaning more to the boat/deck shoe style the Haynt is a superb two tone moccasin with a leather/wool upper, that is reminiscent of the classic Pod shoes.

This really is a shoe for all-season, providing style and training use all in one stylish stride.

Coming in white and grey or try the Himos, which although boasts a similar moccasin shape, they really are pure style in navy blue with a smart white sole and leather stripe upper that adds a touch of class, with of course the classic logo on the heel.
