The Lakai story
The Lakai brand is based in California, which some would argue to be one of the original skater homes. Founded at the height of skating passion, in 1999, the founders were themselves skaters (Mike Carroll and Rick Howard) and therefore had an instinctive understanding of the importance of quality and style in the shoes they manufactured. Since its early beginnings, the brand has been endorsed by various famous skaters and prominent models can be seen on the feet of skaters even today.

Taking care of Lakai footwear
Whether or not you’re involved in the skating community, Lakai shoes are the pair you wear to impress your mates. However, that won’t be happening if you let them get dirty and scruffy. Keep the shoes in good nick by cleaning them regularly. A damp cloth will get rid of most surface dirt, and then use a waterproofing treatment to protect the surface. Always let your shoes air when you take them off, as that will allow sweat and moisture to escape and ensure the materials bounce back from hard wear.
