Known for its rich history in athletics, Lacoste has come out with the Lacoste Tribute Collection. This set of shoes is being released to honor the founder of the company, René Lacoste, who was a dominant figure in the tennis world during his time -- he won his first Grand Slam at only 20 years old.

Each shoe in the Lacoste Tribute Collection is "inspired by a different Grand Slam victory; the year of each win is embroidered on the interior of the shoe. If the collection doesn't appeal to you, just take a look at the displays for each shoe; they are so precisely detailed, they're hard to ignore.

Presenting the history of Lacoste in a great way, the Lacoste Tribute Collection would have made the young René Lacoste proud to call himself the founder of such a company.
