We are pleased to announce that we’ve just had a range of Lakai’s brand new Spring skate shoes drop into the store! Lakai, founded by professional skateboarders Mike Carroll and Rick Howard, is a Los Angeles based manufacturer of skateboarding footwear. Since its birth, Lakai has gained and continues to hold a highly respected reputation and position within the skateboarding community. What better way to hit the skate park than with a fresh pair of Lakai skate shoes to help you land those tricks with an extra bit of flair!
The Cambridge range is designed from a mixture of materials such as suede and perforated synthetic leather. This gives the pair a modern feel without compromising the classic old school Lakai look which has become so popular over the years. The burgundy-on-white finish gives these trainers a striking appearance and further adds to this new but vintage look.
The Black/Green Camo Suede pair within the Cambridge range also maintains that iconic Lakai look whilst bringing in a modern kick. You can tell at first glance that these trainers are made for skateboarding; the dark suede colours give them an aesthetic that is simple, yet powerful. To take it that step further, the Cambridge range features a PARA-MOUNT dual density rubber outsole, which is currently Lakai’s most advanced vulcanised outsole.
The Newport range gives you everything you’d want from a good quality pair of skate shoes. The black-on-gold look gives it a simple but stylish look that can be worn with almost anything and they have also been designed for comfort and high performance! The Newport range has been manufactured with the same comfort and support as the Bristol range, whilst incorporating the style of Lakai’s first-ever vulcanised style, the Howard Select.
Now, the Griffin has not only become a fan favourite when it comes to choosing a grand pair of skate shoes, but it has also become a team favourite at Lakai! It is arguably at the forefront of Lakai’s incredible footwear; its slick grey design, visual branding and seamless toe box give it a strongly distinctive, appealing design.
Similarly to the Grey Suede range mentioned above, the Griffin - Multi Print Canvas has also become a requested team favourite at Lakai and it's not too difficult to see why. The Multi Print Canvas on this pair of Griffin Skate Shoes give it quite a daring, eye-catching look. These trainers offer increased breathability as well as a hidden midsole which acts as a layer of shock absorption for greater comfort.
The kids version of the fan favourite Griffin range takes the form of a perfect combination of suede and canvas. The Black/Cyan Suede finish gives it a clean but simple appearance and just like the adult’s range, this pair of Griffins is also built for extra comfort and high-performance skateboarding.
