Lacoste Performance Footwear And A What’s Up (?) On Women’s Style.

Add a little gator bite to your tennis wardrobe with these shoes. Lacoste’s newest performance footwear styles are great looking, lightweight and super comfortable. The women’s colors are unique gotta haves including the bahamas blue (above right) and pale yellow. The men’s come in black (above left), navy and white. The Lacoste Repel retails for $135 USD, the higher end of the tennis sneaker price range, but they offer many performance features including memory foam, gel support and moisture wicking lining. Really nice.

Next, sorry but we have a gripe. We’ve all seen Andy Roddick’s Lacoste kit on the market, but the women’s styles on Nathalie Dechy, Emilie Loit, Alize Cornet and Dominika Cibulkova are simply not available for purchase ANYWHERE. What is up with that? The only piece available that the WTA ladies are wearing is the skirt we’ve seen on Dominika (Active Tipped Interlock Tennis Skirt, $125 USD).

With Lacoste becoming the Official Sponsor of the 2009 Australian Open, including being tournament outfitter, hopefully the company will begin to expand its line to allow more female players to get some of the great alligator style we’ve seen on the courts this year. Come on Lacoste, serve it up! We’re waiting.

Buy the new Repel at Tennis-Warehouse or  Lacoste.
