Step forward into fashion with inspirations from the ’90s as Lacoste unveils its highly anticipated new line, Court Slam, this November 23 to 24 at the Glorietta Activity Center, and November 29 to December 1 at the Alabang Town Center.
Refreshed Retro Vibe
Combining tennis codes with the current dictates of streetwear fashion, this new unisex sneaker catches the eye with its retro look and chunky sole. Inspired by the Tennis 91, one of the iconic models plucked from the brand’s archives, the Court Slam asserts a unique personality. Born in tennis courts in the 1990s, it is being revived today as a lifestyle sneaker with a daring and contemporary aesthetic and design.
Available in a one-color version – black, white or navy. Versions of white highlighted with colored details – blue, green or red are also available. Highlights on the sole, heel and reinforced lace holes, the Court Slam has a leather upper with suede insets. Get a peek of the other versions here. Inspired by the grip of a tennis racket, its perforated upper also gives it a casual, sporty look, while retaining its original technology for optimum stability and comfort.
