Lakai Limited Footwear: Since 1999
Lakai Limited Footwear was founded in 1999 in sunny Southern California, where lots of good ideas are born. Their mission: equip the world’s skateboarders with the most stylish skate shoes around. Lakai skate shoes are designed with skate performance in mind, a fact with Lakai’s pro skateboarder founders, Mike Carroll and Rick Howard, take very seriously. Hmm. Does it seem like you’ve heard their names before somewhere? That’s not surprising: the same two dudes founded Girl Skateboards. Both brands belong to Girl Distribution. In addition to skate shoes, the label offers a fine selection of street and skate wear, like hoodies, t-shirts and caps.
