LACOSTE INTRODUCES THE RUN SPIN KNIT
AN INNOVATIVE WOVEN SNEAKER
The new Lacoste Run Spin Knit is the perfect intersection between sport and style.
The Run Spin Knit is built to instantly fit to any foot, enveloping snuggly like a glove – or, in this case, a sock, thanks to the yarn. It is a landmark in Lacoste’s commitment to diversity, a sneaker for anyone and everyone, a sneaker that moulds to the uniqueness of the wearer.
The Run Spin Knit is an updated twist on the respected Lacoste performance shoe, the Run Spin. Here, the Run Spin’s streamlined sole is given a new life with an innovative and elevated knitted upper, transforming into a shoe for day-to-day exploring, a sneaker for the urban adventurer.
The Run Spin Knit works for a quick morning 5k, or a day at the office, or a night out. This is a sneaker that can travel with you seamlessly, wherever you want to go; it is lightweight, comfortable, breathable, agile and undeniably elegant. Its versatility speaks to a generation who do not like to be defined.
Lacoste believe that elegance is a value that transcends difference. Therefore, no detail is left unconsidered, from the chic branded webbing to the ribbed collar of the upper, for an impeccable fit. The sneaker is crafted from a one-piece recycled polyester yarn – ideal for breathability and effortless for putting on and off or carrying, thanks to the collapsible upper construction. The sole is made from a unique foam compound for comfort and rebound step after step. The sneaker comes with front and back rubber pods for traction, alongside a neat heel support. It is completed by a dynamic croc logo, shining out from its side.
In design details, clear homage is paid to the iconic bold and bright Lacoste polos that have graced a broad array of wardrobes worldwide, across generations, and across subcultures. While the sneaker is utterly modern, in spirit it celebrates past classics and vintage sport influences; skating, basketball and tennis. Lacoste is aware that icons are people-made; through a delicate process of adoption and appropriation a shoe can become so much more than a piece of footwear – it is a symbol, a code, a call-to-action and a badge of honour. To those in the know, it can be a conduit for vital social-cultural messages.
The Run Spin Knit is the sneaker for a new generation of free-thinkers, who stand firm in their own choices, all while supporting and embracing the individuality and difference of their peers.
