Fusing fashion and sports in one remarkable footwear
Lacoste, the French fashion brand, dares to bring together the worlds of fashion and sport by introducing a new shoe silhouette, which combines the best elements of style and functionality in the L003 Neo sneakers.
“The L003 Neo nods to the pioneering achievements of founder Rene Lacoste, all while breaking rules about how fashion and sport can and should mix,” shares the brand. “It is a fresh vision for the future that takes the conversation somewhere totally new. L003 Neo is a boundary-breaking moment, an inspiration for a new kind of sneaker.”
The key inspiration behind the L003 Neo comes from a tennis ball bouncing across lines, across divisions, always moving and pinging its way around the court. It embraces constant change and innovation, which the sneakers themselves embody.
The dynamic lifestyle sneaker features a neoprene and mesh upper, intricate lace fastening, perforations, and bold Lacoste branding on the side. The shoe has a modern chunky outsole and comes in neon yellow, which nods to the dynamism of the tennis ball, and pays homage to Lacoste’s rich history as a sporting leader.
Other bright and sleek options include monochrome pink and turquoise for women, and classic tones, such as all-black and timeless khaki for men.
For the Philippine launch, professional volleyball player Dennise Lazaro-Revilla rocked the pair together with model Jessica Yang and rapper AI James. All wore the lifestyle sneakers during the launch on Feb. 10, 2023, at Glorietta 3 in Makati City.
The L003 Neo sneaker offers the creativity of a runway-inspired shoe in a practical and versatile everyday sneaker.
In the Philippines, the L003 Neo is available for P10,950 at Lacoste stores and online.
