The One about the LACOSTE SPORT Deston Sneaker

After my negative experience with the LACOSTE SPORT Protected sneaker, with my love for the LACOSTE brand, I decided to give the shoes another try.  Something that looks stylish, one that would look great with jeans and chinos and this time, a shoe you can tie!  And the result, the LACOSTE SPORT Deston sneaker. I have posted about my bias towards LACOSTE apparel.  For the longest time, I have been […]

The One about the LACOSTE SPORT Protected Sneaker

I have a bias towards LACOSTE clothing gear. For the longest time, I have been a fan of the French clothing company which was originally founded back in 1933. Best known as the company that was created by tennis player Jean Rene Lacoste a.k.a. “the Crocodile” because of his tenacity on the tennis court, Lacoste won seven Grand Slam single titles and was the #1 tennis player in the world […]

In 1967, the green foam padding was added […]

The One about Tying Your Shoelaces

And I see it even more frequently with guys who wear boots.  Their shoelaces are often getting undone.  One guy I know steps on them far too often that his shoelaces fray and he often blames the shoelaces and not because of how he […]

The One About the JCP Stafford Logan Wingtip Blucher

When listed the JC Penny’s Stafford Logan Wingtip Blucher (note: the website uses the word “Oxford”) as one of “The best looking dress shoes under $200”, I must admit that I was a skeptic. For one, it’s called an oxford, but the shoes don’t featured closed lacing.  Blucher’s feature open lacing and thus, this shoe is a blucher, not an oxford.  You can read more about it here. But […]
