Under its Lacoste Essential Design imprint, the French apparel company introduces new sneaker hybrids as part of its Fall/Winter 2013 collection. Taking the form of the high-top Burgate and runner-inspired Denshaw, both silhouettes are built with supple mini Nappa leather uppers, embellished with punched wingtip detailing at the toe-cap and quarter panels. Underneath, an athletic EVA and natural rubber outsole denote a classic running shoe influence. Additional details include bronzed eyelets, blind seams and classic round laces in a contrast hue. Silver crocodile branding on the tongue finishes the look. The Burgate and Denshaw are available now at select Lacoste retailers.
