Lakai

Lakai Logo
Lakai® has been built around grass roots tradition since day one. In 1993, Mike Carroll and Rick Howard thought they might have a better formula for a skateboard company--- one that made products the team would be proud of and kept an atmosphere that was supportive and motivating. While it was a risk, they felt like they owed it to skateboarding and skateboarders to take that risk. In 1999, facing a similar situation in respect to footwear, Mike and Rick introduced Lakai Limited Footwear with the same dedication and pride they have always invested into their skateboarding and the Girl/Chocolate brands. Simply stated, they are “The Shoes We Skate”. Lakai shoes are the epitome of style, comfort and functionality.

You will not find a better selection of skateboard shoes than Lakai. Lakai has something for everyone from their industry collaborations to their pro model styles and color ups. Lakai shoes and Lakai clothing have changed the game and are here to stay.

Dope Ass pair of shoes I can tell that they're gonna be good... I originally bought three pairs one in black and white one in gold and blue and one in blue and gold the black pair I'm gonna actually skate but for me they do fit a little snug at first but I can tell after wearing them a little bit I know they'll loosen up they seem to have good tread pattern and seem like they'll grip the board very well not too bulky not slim they do have a nice padded tounge with centering straps so it wont slide around while ur skating overall great shoe I'd definitely purchase 3 more pairs

These shoes are dope. I wear them for biking and just walking in general. I wore them while we traveled to japan last year and walked a solid 150miles in them over the course of 2 weeks. Hands down my favorite Lakai shoe

Not good for skating at all. The sock liner material is super slick and my heels kept slipping out no matter how tight you tie the shoes.

These are so comfortable and great for skating. I have smaller feet, size 7.5 in women's and these shoes in a size 6 fit perfectly.

First time wearing them today and they feel a little tight in my toe on my right foot. But I did wear them to work with lots of bending and moving so not sure how they are to skate in yet.

This is a classy looking high top at a reasonable price. Unlike other brands, the quality here is top notch. The upper is of a quality leather. Thought has been given to the design, resulting again in a classy, almost dressy look. My only quibble is some of the stitching is irregular and inconsistent enough to almost run off the border. All in all, this is a great shoe. My first pair of Lakai’s....and they won’t be my last!

Awesome sneakers, very stylish and comfortable. Plenty of grip. These are narrowing fitting shoes which is what I prefer for bmx flatland. If you’re looking for a wider fit, look elsewhere. ?

Fit the same as the Sheffields do, a little narrower then the griffins. Not good for my wide foot, unfortunately, because these would be perfect. Compared to the Joslins, these had a little less padding and slightly thinner sole. Great looking shoe.

I wear a 10.5 in nike & Adidas . Since they didn't carry half sizes I rolled the dice on a size 11 and it fits perfectly. If you are usually a half size and they don't have what you wear I would recommend sizing up.

RUNS A HALF SIZE SMALL The Lakai Griffins (new sole, not the herringbone tred) size 13 and the Emerica Reynolds G6 size 13 were a tad bit small, by just a hair. So I'm a 13.5 officially, and my foot is wider. Got these in a 14 and they fit right on perfect. In length and width. Now as for skating, they're about as expected. The grip is the same as my old griffins, and feels the same, but the upper is minimal, and noticably thinner. It has forced me to hold back, and feels unsafe for trying major tricks. These shoes are good for light skating, cruising, or chillin. They DO look better then expected, and the metal around the lace holes gives the shoe a classy look. These are great for just wearing around. For skating though, it's not enough support, at least for someone 6'2", 180+ lbs. Maby a smaller body would have a different opinion. Still, if you're low on funds, these are a good low cost option. (For other odd size shoes, I hear converse runs big, the joslins run small?, maranas maby, and I just tried on those Nike Dunks (March 2nd) and they were VERY roomy.) Please support Lakai and those smaller skate companies that have been around since skating was small. Nike is way too big, and competition is needed for a healthy industry.

These are my first pairs of Lakai's and I don't know what took me so long to come to the party! They are amazing, and so comfortable (don't mind the pink socks in the pic, I was rushing to snag a picture lol). I ordered them in a 7 as I am not a dude, and wear an 7.5/8 in women's.

I really enjoyed the look and design of this shoe. The upper seemed really well constructed and came up a little higher than most skate shoes, giving more ankle support than I usually find. There is stitching where the tongue meets the toe box that makes the shoe feel pretty secure. I have a wide foot so this was too tight for me but probably provides a secure fit, on foot.

I liked them on the site, and when I got them they were very comfortable. But when I actually put them on my foot, I thought they were really plain and boring looking.

These shoes are great. They are simple and classic looking. They fit well, the tongue straps on the inside offer good support. Although $70 is a little steep, if you can get them on sale I would absolutely recommend picking them up. Support skateboarding and the brands ran by skateboarders.
