What does “Lacoste” mean, and how did the brand get its start?
“Lacoste” is derived from the surname of the brand’s founder, René Lacoste. As a pioneering tennis player and inventor in the 1920s, Lacoste recognised that the then-standard tennis shoes and uniforms were inadequate for improving the level of play. That’s why he developed the first Lacoste polo shirt.
It was a stark contrast to the heavy garments of the day, where long sleeves completely incompatible with a heart-pumping game of tennis were the norm. The polo shirt has remained a standard feature on the tennis court ever since.
The range would eventually expand into Lacoste tennis shoes, along with numerous other products that eventually came to be admired worldwide for their aesthetic qualities as much as their ability to improve play on the court.
Is Lacoste’s logo an alligator or a crocodile?
Lacoste’s logo is a crocodile. The logo stems from René Lacoste himself, who was nicknamed “The Crocodile” by audiences for his tenacious and aggressive approach to tennis.
How can I clean my white Lacoste shoes?
The best way to clean your white Lacoste shoes will vary depending on the material they’re made of. All Lacoste shoes of any colour can be cared for by following these simple steps.
Lacoste suede shoes can be cleaned with a light suede brush or block. The suede should then be moisturised in order to restore the look and colour of the affected area.
Lacoste leather shoes can be easily cleaned with a shoe brush, followed by light wiping with soapy water and finishing with a layer of shoe cream.
Lacoste canvas shoes can be cleaned by lightly scrubbing them with a blend of warm water and mild washing detergent. Afterwards, rinse them with clean, warm water, squeeze out any excess water with a towel and hang them out to dry. It may be necessary to stuff them with newspaper or cardboard prior to hanging them to help preserve their shape.
Lacoste brand shoes made from other textiles can be cleaned with a shoe brush and shoe shampoo if there are deeper stains. It’s best not to put your pair of Lacoste shoes in the washing machine as it may harm their longevity.
After they’re clean and dry, it’s also worth applying an impermeable layer spray like the Aether Impervious Spray to reduce the likelihood of future stains.
Are Lacoste shoes good for walking?
The design of many Lacoste shoes is styled around comfort and fashion instead of athletic performance. They’re the perfect choice if you want a shoe that’s comfortable to wear throughout your entire day. But if you’re after something suited for more strenuous workouts, we also have a huge range of trainers for men and women.
