Breaking news, this Storm is stronger than we thought!

The effortlessly built-up aesthetic that defined 90s footwear has come full circle. Inspired by the archive Storm 96 OG, Lacoste’s first running shoe released in 1996, the Storm 96 Lo evokes intense feelings of nostalgia with a striking shape and wild amalgamation of colour and texture. Incorporating Lacoste’s signature traits – lightweight function and adaptability, the Storm 96 Lo oozes authenticity with archive detailing and a lightweight distinctive outsole moves the style forward.
