Shot by Shayna Batya, we finally unveil our lookbook for the LACOSTL!VE Dash we worked on for this year's Miami Open. Head on over to HYPEBEAST for a full interview with sneakerboxClyde; about the story and design. Set for a March 26th release, both the (white) Racket and the (neon) Ball are very limited in quantities.
Limited to only 50 pairs, the tennis ball-inspired execution will only be sold at the Addict Bal Harbour location; and our Uptown Aventura Mall location. Instead of just doing the whole shoe in a tennis ball felt, we went with a sports-inspired technical mesh; tennis ball felt tongue and dyed goat leather for the mudguard, facings and toe wrap. The felt tongue also features an embroidered tennis ball logo. Both pairs feature an added micro pin perf inner lining for both comfort and breath-ability.
The racket is limited to 450 pairs globally. The upper is executed in classic white goat leather referencing both the white racket and shades of white worn by René Lacoste on court. The perforated punch detailing on the quarter hark back to the tennis racket grip. The pattern aligns directly to the LT.12 racket. The single eyelet on the medial, lace tips, beige croc branding and gum sole are all used to tie in the wood to the color story. White tennis ball felt adorns the entire tongue while being finished off with Lacoste’s classic red on both the embroidered racket logo and inner linings. The Racket is set to release at top tier global retailers on March 28th. Both pair will retail for $190.
This “Racquet & Ball” pack is completed with custom printed insoles, custom woven labels where both brands are called out, a cut & sewn dust bag, and multiple laces. Both the dust bag and the insoles feature the special Miami Open court colors.
