    I stopped by a Lacoste store and asked if they had it, the girl said no but a company called 'Pentland' makes all of their shoes. I should be able to take the Rene model number (11clm1025) and get the shoe from Pentland direct. I'm stuck here if anyone wants to investigate out how to order the damn shoes stateside further.

    [Edit: Sent an email to the Pentland Lacoste email heh.]


    hear back yet?

    whiteplimsoll.com is claiming they are plimsolls

    they are really nice summer shoes though and replacement for converse. my only complaint is that the sole is rather flimsy...

    Great price on those, I just ordered a pair, maybe they'll be my white canvas shoe replacement.

    Just ordered a pair of Plimsolls too! I've been looking for a cheap pair of white shoes to wear sockless this summer and these fit the bill perfectly.

    Bumping this thread just to let people know that these shoes frickin rock out with their @*#$ out. They're fairly flimsy to be honest, but that's what I was expecting from a canvas shoe. I spent most of the day walking around in them and my feet feel fine despite them being even flimsier then converse in the sole department. I'll be reordering these again, they look great with skinny jeans.
