Runs slightly small with a low-profile toe that leaves little room for natural toe wiggle. Simple, clean design is nice but they do look like shoes meant for young boys. Tough to pull of for dudes older than high-school.

These shoes have a snakeskin type of texture on them! I love the blacked out shoe and my husband is an old school skater so these looked perfect. I was so disappointed when I received them and they have this cheesy snakeskin texture. These should have been good looking shoes.

I bought these for my grandson for Christmas which are exactly what he wanted! I almost gave up finding them but Zappos had them and they were at my door two days later just in time. They were a perfect fit and look great.

Shoe is great. Laces were awful. They were long enough for an adult boot! I had to buy laces for the shoe which brought my cost up a little bit.

Excellent shoe. A nice low profile look. It's very comfortable, with enough padding in the sole and mid, but without being bulky. Fits true to size.

The M.J. from Lakai is very minimal shoe. There are no bells and whistles. Everything has been stripped down to the very basics. Its clean and simple design makes the shoe incredibly versatile. You wear it skating or take them out for a night. The shoes does feel slightly smaller than usual for a Lakai. I normally wear 8 but in this particular model, 8.5. This is most likely due to its slim design. There is also little to no arch support,which could be a deal breaker for some. Still they are rather comfortable shoe. If you plan on purchasing this particular shoe, I recommend that you go half a size up.

You really can't go wrong with Lakai. I dig these shoes, great for whatever you choose to utilize them for, and obviously very well made for skateboarding, and I'm pretty hard on shoes. These are holding up.

I got the black suede with gum sole. After having these for some time now, they have broken in nice. They are a flat footed shoe with fairly low arch support. I have gotten good compliments on the shoe. The suede does wear fast so be careful what you are doing when out in these shoes (suede shoes hate water). These are a comfort shoe for me even though I can run in them. They also came with an extra pair of dark green laces? I didn't put them in. Good shoe, comfortable, looks nice, holding up well.

I ventured out of being a dedicated Vans shredder my whole life to try Lakai and they've disappointed me twice now. This is the second pair of Lakai's I've tried on and I've come to the conclusion that they are way narrower than any other normal skate shoe. The toe box is so tight and uncomfortable, but the length of the shoe is as it should be. The suede on these is very thin and cheap, I can't imagine they'd hold up very long especially for hardcore street skaters out there.

Shoes look and feel great. Haven't skated in them, so I don't know how durable they are. Just from walking around in them, they seem to be holding up fine!

Opened the box...a nice designed shoe. Then I put them on. For what I was expecting, this shoe had the worst support of any shoe I have put on my feet in recent memory. So I tried to walk around my office and give them a shot, maybe it's in my head. People skate in these, should be good support, when someone came up and asked if I was recently diagnosed with some incurable disease that affected my ability to walk correctly. That all he said. It wasn't in my head. Back in the box they went.

I really love the black on black styling of this shoe and the gum sole is even sweeter. I bought to use as a skate shoe and from what I see and feel this is a solid shoe. I wear a size 12 in most brands 13 in Nike and I have a thin foot (not narrow), so from top tongue to sole this shoe fits perfect. However my toe is right at the tip of the shoe not tight just snug. I will try thin socks to see how that wears. After all I don't want to be swimming in a size 13.

These lakais make good skate shoes, but their problem is that the laces are too close to the toe so they get ripped to shreds really easily. I started going through a shoelace every skate session and that really adds up! The shoes are really fresh though.

The Brea are perfect skate shoes. They are good out of the box, have a solid board feel with good sole protection. I am on my fourth pair. Finally, as a skater owned company, it feels good to support.

Despite the dull look, this is a great shoe! I actually wanted something that had no frills, but was highly functional. I mostly buy these types of shoes for casual everyday walking, and most of them don't meet my expectations for too long, but these shoes aren't flashy and feel very comfortable. Be aware that the size is a bit smaller so order 1/2 size over your regular size.

These sneakers will hug your feet and leave your ankles feeling free. The low cut ankle will leave your ankles feeling sexy & your feet happy. This is a solid pair of kicks that look & feel great.

Awesome shoe. I can't believe I ever stopped wearing Lakais. True to fit. Great vulcanized sole combined with cushioning that other skate shoe companies wish they could duplicate. Durable materials. Great style - understated, not hipstery at all... just a great shoe.

These are great skate shoes! They last longer than Vans or Nike skates. They need insoles if your skate punk has high arches. These are great shoes.

I bought this same model last year and really liked it so I bought it again. It seems they made some changes and I'm disappointed. The tongue had less padding and no elastic to keep it centered. the sole is different and less comfortable. I won't buy this shoe again.
