The Top 5 Finalists Of Lakai’s “My Way” Contest (So Far)

If you haven’t heard due to a leave of absence on social media or because of IG’s stupid algorithm, Lakai has again launched their much-anticipated “My Way” contest. In past years, it’s been a number of classic team models, and this year’s no different as they’ve chosen the Staple to act as your canvas.

Given the shoe’s many layers, there’s plenty of opportunity for creativity. Whether you stay in the lines or completely redesign the shoe’s construction, the point of this contest is to do a Lakai shoe your way.

With the contest in full swing, we teamed up with Lakai to feature the Top 5 finalists so far. We say “so far” because there’s another week before the deadline to submit your submissions. These submissions are in no particular order, but don’t get it confused – these are the Top 5 you’re competing against.

The contest ends on May 1st, 2017 5:00 pm PST and a winner will be chosen on May 5th, 2017 12:00 pm PST.

Needless to say, get on and download their template ASAP if you think you can outdo any of the following designs. Until then, what do you think of this Top 5? Which is the best?

    It’s too good to be true for that hi-top to win. The Navy & Grey got my vote.
