Old but new and available online.
It was only a matter of time before Lacoste got in on this espadrille thing going on. We couldn’t be happier to see them on board. Here is their latest offering in the lightweight summer shoe.

However, patchwork paneling across the upper, truly gives this designer shoe, the arts and crafts appeal of a handmade beach shoe. Finished with a gum rubber sole, these sturdy yet skimpy Lacoste kicks can be had online.
