The Lakai Manchester started a trend of seamless toe skate shoes. Now re-issued as Manchester XLK Skate Shoes with an improved fit and added comfort, these skate shoes deliver high performance for today's standard of skateboarding. The outsole's design is influenced by the original sole with the mini cylinder tread and large flare branding. The sidewalls have been sculpted to reduce weight and improve flexibility.
Lakai are legendary skate shoes. Founded at the turn of the century by Mike Carroll and Rick Howard, two pioneers of the independent skate community. The founders brought their entrepreneurial skills from their other brands to Lakai. Evidence of the quality of these shoes is the stacked team of riders who choose to wear them.
