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 is represented by Rick Howard, Mike Carroll, Eric Koston, Marc Johnson, Guy Mariano, Cairo Foster, Scott Johnston, Brandon Biebel, Anthony Pappalardo, Jeff Lenoce, Rob Welsh, Mike Mo Capaldi, Alex Olson, Jesus Fernandez, The French Connection and The Royal Family. 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.
