(For those who are interested, Lacoste designed a clay court version in the white/navy colorway.)
Lacoste will also concurrently release a line of Gravitate shoes (which we love love love). It will have the same athletic elements as the Repel line, but will feature a “finger-like stripe lace system that literally wraps around the player’s foot, providing the utmost comfort and support.” We’re big fans of the brighter colorways on the Gravitates.
Browse: The close-ups of the Repel and Gravitate men’s shoes are below the cut. (Don’t worry, ladies — you’ll get your own post.) The shoes will drop in time for the Spring/Summer 2008 selling season.
Love ’em? Hate ’em?: Tell us what you think.
Repels close up: The honeycomb design on the shoe’s side; the Lacoste crocodile.
Repel White/Classic Green
Men’s exclusive: The men get a clay version of the Repel.
