I know – it’s cold, it’s wet and the last thing you want to do is leave your house. But what’s the best way to motivate yourself to stay active? New gym shoes of course!  

Introducing the brand-new performance-inspired model from Lacoste, the Active 4851, built for everyday movement.

The shoe (like all the football fans that have sprouted during the World Cup) has sport at its heart, bringing all the technicality of performance to everyday life and is fit for those who want to exude style even when running around during daily errands. Although developed with ‘life on the go’ in mind, the silhouette and design features are by no means rushed – look closely and the product becomes complex in the details.

The dual mesh upper completed with a fluid net revolves around the idea of movement, whilst the shoe’s fit-system is intuitively comfortable thanks to a double-layered tongue meaning the wearer does not feel the imprint of the laces. Not only is this product purposeful, meaning you can take it from work to sport to social events, but the shoe is suited to all genders and comes in an array of colours ranging from triple white to all black with hints of orange. All designs come with a dynamic triangular detail on the sole as a nod to the scales of the iconic Lacoste crocodile and the sleek and streamline design makes it perfect for any weekend wardrobe. Also rendered on the upper is “From the Court to the Streets since 1927” being Lacoste’s latest tagline.

The rich history of Lacoste is encapsulated into the branding on the upper which includes the geographic coordinates of the very first Lacoste product factory in France – yes, where the iconic polo shirt was first produced! Not only that, but the numbers in the shoe’s name, 4851, come from this same geographic information. As the sneaker community shifts, the pair suits the tastes of modern consumers who want to know that their garments and sneakers have a story.

If you’ve been looking for an everyday shoe that is designed with sophistication, innovation, authenticity and movement in mind, then buy yours today. Now available at Footlocker.co.uk for £119.
