Lacoste has delved deep into its archives for Spring/Summer 2021 to take notes from some of its most renowned retro running silhouettes of the 1970s and inform its latest footwear release: the Match Break.

Through a blend of heritage and meticulous design, Lacoste introduces a fresh clean cut sneaker that oozes a vintage sports aesthetic and technical features — a combination that perfectly finds the balance between elegance and French craftsmanship.

With a plain canvas upper, the Match Break’s natural texture is enhanced by subtle patterns like visible seams, while leather overlays offer a slight contrast of materials and colors from heel-to-toe.

Sat atop a sleek tapered sole, each sneaker boasts a refined rubber outsole that instantly gives the silhouette a streamlined sporty twist.

Coming in seven colorways, Lacoste’s Match Break sneakers are available now for £120 (approximately $163 USD) from the brand’s online webstore.

In other sneaker news, adidas Originals has continued its City Series with a Madrid-themed release.
