Spotlight: Alex Nash x Lacoste “The Bravington”

UK sneaker genius Alex Nash (aka Nash Money) has been at it again, bringing a new silhouette to the sneaker market, this time he has partnered up with Lacoste to create The Bravington.

Inspired by the suave heritage and image behind the Lacoste brand, Nash has created a shoe that manages to sit rather comfortably alongside the current Lacoste footwear line-up whilst also being a distinct Nash shoe. This shoe has a lot of character, even in the White/White colourway, and it goes well beyond the expected Moccasin stitch. To me this looks like a respectable skate shoe, a smart mid if you will and when I first saw the press images I assumed the the shoe would also be chunky like a skate shoe but It’s actually deceptively lightweight with a pretty slimline material structure. Something I was more than happy to discover.

In terms of material, Nash & Lacoste haven’t held back on this one at all, managing to fit in elements of mesh, nubuck, suede and full-grain leather without over-crowding the design of the shoe. Pretty impressive! The co-branding is what really makes this shoe so special. Peep the ‘Alex Nash’ emblem that guards the laces at the top of the shoe, the subtly embossed crocodiles on the heels, the individual tongue tabs and the co-branded insoles. My favourite little detail is that the Lacoste crocodile is only featured on the side of the right shoe. It’s clear that Lacoste haven’t skimped on Nash’s attention to detail with this collab.

Congrats to Nash, another great design!

These 2 colourways will be available in the 1st week of July from Hanon & Cooshti with another 2 colourways dropping in November.
