It definitely seems that collaborative footwear projects are no longer limited to trainers; there’s a good handful of brands who have started offering smarter silhouettes as special editions, from Clarks, to Sebago, and here, to the LACOSTE x HIGHS AND LOWS SALUTE PACK.
In a move that makes perfect zoological sense, the brand with the crocodile crest have revealed a second teamup with the Australian retailer, after first collaborating on the Marceau boot in 2012. This time working on the Sauville Mid, HAL have produced a duo of military-themed makeups for the aptly named Salute Pack. The smart look of the boot is preserved, but HAL have made some technical tweaks to increase comfort and function, with neoprene, soft calfskin leather and Durabuck used throughout the upper. The 9 star military emblem embossed onto the tongue strengthens the allusion to uniform and serves as a tribute to HAL’s 9 years of business. The olive/black and navy/red colourways reference Army and Navy fatigues respectively, while colour-coordinated extended laces are designed to wrap around the heel for further support.
The LACOSTE x HIGH AND LOWS ‘SALUTE PACK’ is scheduled to launch globally in the coming weeks, and they will be available in the UK with FOOTPATROL via the link-through below. Good luck!
