Lakai Skate Shoes
In 1993, Mike Carroll and Rick Howard had a thought that 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; something that, during a time of mass manufacturing of good-looking, poor performance shoes, was needed. While it was a risk, they felt like they owed it to skateboarding and skateboarders to take that risk. And so 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'.
Today, Lakai is renowned as a true skate brand, never deviating from its original intent. Lakai shoes are the skaters shoes and don't try to be something that they are not. Always original, always for the skater.
