The immersive event perfectly showed the footwear’s multiple character, challenging fashion standards while demonstrating its adaptability via a virtual catwalk, tennis, and rhythm game.

A twist on a concept shoe pioneered on Lacoste’s runway, now available to all. The L003 Neo nods to the pioneering achievements of founder Rene Lacoste, all whole breaking rules about how fashion and sport can and should mix. It is a fresh vision for the future that takes the conversation somewhere totally new. L003 Neo is a boundary-breaking moment, an inspiration for a new kind of sneaker.

A key inspiration comes from the tennis ball – which bounces across lines, across divisions, across time, always moving, pinging its way around the court, to embrace constant change, constant innovation, bold acceptance, radical modernity. The shoe is similarly energetic – moving from court to street, from sport to fashion, from what came before to what comes next.

This dynamic lifestyle sneaker has a neoprene and mesh upper, intricate lace fastening, eye-catching perforations and bold Lacoste branding on the side. Furthermore, the crocodile sparkles from the side heel. The shoe is supported by a contemporary thick outsole. The L003 Neo is available in a hero colorway of neon yellow, which pays homage to the liveliness of the tennis ball as well as Lacoste’s long history as a sports leader. There are also a variety of additional colorful and sleek alternatives, such as fashionable monochromatic pink and turquoise for ladies, and traditional tones, such as all-black and timeless khaki for men, to provide maximum choice.

The shoe comes to life in a vibrant campaign starring L003 Neo ambassadors, Jeon Somi and Pak Jinyoung.  Jeon Somi, also known simply as Somi, is a famous K-pop singer. She made her solo debut in June 2019 with immediate international success. Pak Jinyoung is undoubtedly a rising supermodel. He covers top fashion magazines and has been part of a luxury brand’s campaign. Both are on the move, bouncing, speeding, shining. They encapsulate the dynamism and youthful vitality of the L003 Neo. The campaign let us dive in a material world where expands L003 Neo materials to create a tactile landscape for Somi and Pak Jinyoung to move and explore within.
