What had been spotted on Rick Howard’s feet at Street League NJ has finally come full circle onto the internet. Much like our quest in finding Westgate’s latest runner, this Lakai Slip-on shares the same appeal. For one, It’s a classic silhouette in skateboarding footwear. Plus, since the birth of the slip-on, no one has seen any proper renditions of this staple shoe for some time (or at least remembered them). Collectively, both shoes serve as a breath of fresh air in an over saturated market & promise consumers something new without going overboard in design.
From the looks of it, it could be another Guy Mariano backed model because of the similarities it has to his current shoe. The deco stitching found on this slip-on, along with what looks like an XLK sported sole suggests exactly that. Overall, our guess is as good as yours. However, we do know that you can expect this shoe around Fall of 2014. We’ll keep you posted if anymore info leaks.
