Lacoste M89 OG 0121

From a sneakerhead’s perspective, this may come as an odd suggestion. Remember that some other brands were present in a diverse array of markets before you knew it.

Lacoste is one of them. Think about it: the brand has been around since 1933, so they must be doing something right, wouldn’t you agree?

Forever linked with the sport of Tennis, these M89 OG take cues from one of Lacoste’s most acclaimed silhouettes, the Maddison, which is fully court-inspired. They boast nostalgic and vintage 80’s vibes like no other, hence being taken directly from their archives.

In fact, most if not all would consider the Lacoste M89 OG an all-round sneaker, perfect for the everyday wear and tear. Its modernized looks are infused with performance-enhancing details, such as a TPU heel clip as well as technical lacing system and a OrthoLite insole, a crucial base for on-court stability. In addition, it is delivered with perforated and ventilated features, maximising airflow when on feet.

They are dressed in full-white crisp white leather with dark green hints, made from recycled materials. The M89 OG is finished off with its crocodile branding on the quarter panel.

The Lacoste M89 OG will be available from the 30th of November, online.
