form fitting upper design contributes to an increased board feel. This shoe reflects
the new standard that has been reached due to the Lakai team’s fresh approach
to styling. This shoe is the signature shoe for Marc Johnson, professional skateboarder,

skateboarder. Design comes from those that know what is needed to excel. Inspiration
and innovation comes from the passion for the sport. This flare spilled into Lakai
video productions of skateboarding. Lakai received considerable attention for
these productions. Their first full-length video was Fully Flared. Videographer
and director Ty Evans was responsible for the bulk of Lakai’s videos productions.
It has been say that Fully Flared was the most watched skateboard video of its
decade. Lakai’s has a knack for putting its finger on the pulse. You can
trust that they will get you to where you want to go.
