The Lacoste Swerve (pictured) is one of many Velcro (that’s hook and loop if you’re snooty) Lacoste mens shoes. You know Lacoste, they’re the ones with that alligator on all their shirt pockets. I don’t think it adds anything to the asthetic here, and it’d get Sharpied over if I had a pair. That said, I actually like the overall aesthetic of a lot of their shoes. Their Protect shoe might even go unnoticed at a more formal occasion. I can say from experience that having something that is both presentable and comfortable in the closet is a big plus.
The tread pattern is big chevrons up the center. The upper is leather, making them both water resistant and warm. For Lacoste women’s shoes, as well as other currently available velcro styles, check out the selection here.
