The legendary footwear magazine, Sneaker Freaker, is entering their fourth and final release with Lacoste L!VE using the crocodile brand’s classic Missouri tennis shoe. This last shoe is perhaps our most favourite is it showcases a truly unique blend of materials and colour. With that being said, we put in a frame for our latest Sneaker Art. It all begins with a cool grey at the toe box, then moves to the middle for a deep blue, and ends with a lighter cornflower blue at the heel. The finer details include pink in the sole and soft satin lining.
The sneaker is set to drop this Saturday and it will be exclusively available on deadstock.ca and at their Toronto, Livestock, location.
