Lakai Releases A Slip-On Cupsole With The Debut Of Their FTC Collab

Lakai’s Owen, now offered atop a cupsole. Available now – $68

The future is looking bright with Lakai’s latest collaboration.

That statement is true in more than one way. Not only has Lakai laced up some of the young up-and-comers from SF, but they’ve given skateboarders what we’ve wanted for so long: a slip-on cupsole.

Outside of being a shoe we’ve wanted to see come to fruition for years, the VLK-backed Owen comes in a variety of handsome colorways. Port, Black, and Pink Owen models coincide with a variety of goods in the limited FTC capsule. Offerings include a pullover hoodie, dad hat, long sleeve tees, and socks in a number of colorways.

The more than reasonable price tag of $68 is what it’ll cost you for this limited release. No word yet on whether this construction of the Owen will stick around, so get your hands on them sooner than later.

    Wish they made it on the XLK sole (i.e. MJ XLK)

    Thing is, this model will stick. If anyone doesn’t already know, Tactics did an overview of the non-collab Owen XLK’s. Thankfully they’re due this Spring.

    Those look really good, a full grain leather version like they did with the old Owen would be nice.
