Hey folks. Spring press previews are in full swing right now, and I’ve been hitting up my fair share of them. I got the opportunity to check out the footwear by the keepers of my favorite little Crocodile, Lacoste. So make like you’re Dundee, and take a gander at the Lacoste Spring 2010 footwear line!
Do you remember those super fresh, peep toe – open heel canvas booties from the Lacoste runway show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week this year? If not, back up your mouse a little bit and refresh your memory. Those shoes were on my “Spring Dream” list – I imagined myself all breezy toed, and heely danned in cool, crisp canvas rocking one of those bright snappy colors with mad confidence. I thought they were the perfect alternative to another spring and summer likely to be dominated by leathers, gladiators, and those awful ubiquitous u-shaped thongy toe wedgie sandals that were everywhere this year. Well, I hate to open with bad news, but they’re not being produced for consumers. I’d like to find the people that made that decision and let them know that my crocodile tears are sincere.
Lacoste however, has done a really nice job with the rest of their canvas offerings in the style and color departments. There are a few varieties of both high tops and low tops that remind me of Keds, but like 200% better. They will range in price from around $65 for the simple model to $70 for the open toe and other low top and $90 for the high top model.
There are some other more athletic looking options that range in price from $75 to about $130. The more luxurious, club collection shoes that will be carried in stores like Neiemen Marcus and other high end stores will include the sandals and the boat shoe wedge and will range in price from $130 to $160. The flip flops will range in price from $30 for the terry cloth model, and go up to $60 for the leather edition.
If your sneaker loving man is sitting nearby, coax him over to take a look at the men’s offerings in the gallery below. Attractive leather offerings range in price from $90 to $130, and go up to $170 for the more sophisticated club collection styles.
Lacoste Spring/Summer footwear will start hitting stores in February 2010 and will continue dropping through June.
