LAKAI SKATE SHOES: PROTO. Black/Gum Suede
The LakaiProto is designed by skateboarding legend Tony Hawk and marks his first signature shoe on the brand. This colour option is a common staple in any collection with a black suede upper and gum sole, finished with white “flare” logo details. When designing the shoe, Tony took inspiration from the shoes that skaters were wearing in the 80s and 90s and used that to develop the Proto’s unique aesthetic.
This allows for some unique features as well such as a nylon webbing strap on the tongue which is a reference to the lace savers that vert skaters used to protect their laces while knee-sliding.
The upper is designed for durability and futures and internal sock for an enhanced fit.
The sole unit is a classic cemented cup sole but uses Lakai’s exclusive XLK technology for increased flex and cushioning.
The hex tread pattern is one that you find on a number if Lakai shoes and is a team favourite for its board feel and grip.
The outsole has also been shaped to reduce its overall weight and stabilise your heel whilst improving overall movement.
Lakai brand randing on the mid-quarters, tongue and heel.
Tongue and heel tabs allow convenience when putting them on.
