Lacoste Spring 2012 Tribute Collection

1927 was the year of the crocodile. In 1927, René Lacoste triumphed the French Championships in Paris and the US Championships in Forest Hills, New York, defeating each time the apparently unbeatable American player Bill Tilden. That same year the polo L.12.12 came to life, a cotton pique t-shirt that still stands as the unmistakable symbol of Lacoste style.

The Tribute Collection by Lacoste was designed to celebrate René Lacoste’s victories: every model is inspired by a different Grand Slam victory.
You can find more about the shoes dedicated to 1925 and 1926 here. Below some pics of the sneakers consecrated to the crocodile’s year – Bryont (in both low and mid cut versions), Suzuka and Castera. The shoes will be available for purchase soon through select Lacoste retailers around the world.
