I have a special liking to French brand Lacoste, I don’t know why, but I associate it with class. They are super expensive here in the PH, but I particularly have a thing for their shoes. Now, I don’t call myself an addict or a collector, as I’m not the type who buys just because I like it.
I buy because I need it.
Plus, I’m the type of person who would only own two pairs of shoes – one for casual, and one for more formal clothes (or office clothes). So anyway, I bought my first
Lacoste shoes a few years ago, not exactly sure when. I remember it was on sale, I was attracted to the color as it was different and so, I bought it.
Here. A few people noticed and did ask where I bought them. When I said Lacoste, they’d just say “Oh mayaman (rich)”. Of course not, it was on sale. And then they’d say – wow. Good buy.
That was when I realized that I’d only buy whenever the brand is on sale.
This was my second Lacoste pair, also on sale haha.
Even used it when I attended the Gawad Kalinga build a home project.
You might think that as a brand mainly focused on clothing, their shoes wouldn’t be that sturdy. But they are, I believe I’ve had them for more than three years now.
That must be the reason why they are all worn out now haha. I’ve been in need of a new pair since February; but I just can’t seem to find the perfect one for me. I did find one before, but it wasn’t on sale! It was worth P7000++!!! So, no.
I told myself I’ll wait for the next mallwide sale. But no.
Summer has come and gone; and the Lacoste store has not been plastered with the red stickers with the magical four letter word. I am
Already wearing my last pair of Lacoste and he is already dying, it already has a hole at the bottom. That’s how bad I use these shoes; what with all those jumpshots I do, you think they’d last? Haha.
I said I’ll wait for the Back to School sale, or the Rainy Day sale. It won’t be long.
Yesterday, my friend texted me and told me that there are a few items inside the Lacoste store that were on SALE!!! They were neatly placed in the corner, so a person walking from the outside wouldn’t notice.
That was my go signal.
✔️ White Shoes
✔️ On Sale!!!!!
So I guess the purpose of this post is just to honor these two great pairs
And of course to humblebrag and welcome their replacement
