Lakai Limited Footwear is proud to present its latest release, The Lakai EVO. The EVO is constructed with our breathable Flareknit™ multi-woven, one-piece upper. Along with an arch supporting foam midsole, traction rubber outsole, and a premium memory foam sock liner, the EVO is Lakai’s most comfortable shoe to date.
This shoe is the first of its kind from Lakai, and is kicking off our “After Skate” category of footwear, stemming from the idea that skateboarders simply do not wear skate shoes 100% of the time. They need a shoe that takes care of their feet while not on their board. With that thought in mind, this shoe has been built with every concern for our professional team’s need of both comfort and function.
This inaugural release consists of a multi-color “RGB” colorway inspired by the branding of our latest full-length feature skate film, “The Flare,” produced by Mike Carroll, Rick Howard, Megan Baltimore, and Spike Jonze.
To celebrate the shoe launch, we have partnered with sunglass manufacturer Glassy, owned by long time Lakai family members Mike Mo and Vince Capaldi. In collaboration with Glassy, each pair of EVO’s comes with Mike Mo Capaldi’s signature sunglass complete with custom “The Flare” branding.
The Lakai EVO/Glassy set will retail at $100 and are now available at Lakai.com and select skate shops worldwide.
