Announcing The Winner Of Lakai’s “My Way” Contest

The entries were many and the finalists of Lakai’s “My Way” contest made life just a bit harder for Mike Carroll and crew when it came to deciding which mind-blowing colorway would win. Some of you broke the rules (which didn’t exist) and made some of our personal favorite renditions of Lakai’s Staple. Velcro-backed, mids, and even slip-on Staples were created, which made picking the winner even harder.

When asked how they picked the winner, the guys at Lakai said:

“Thanks to everyone who participated. It was so rad and fun for us to go through and look at each entry. We chose the winner based on color, creativity, and wearability. It’s a believable skate shoe with an awesome color scheme that we would be proud to look down at our feet and see.”

… so without further ado, the winner is Kacper Krasuski from Poland with his Emerald/Red/Black colorway.

    They need to make the slip-on Staple as soon as possible!

    Lets be honest, choosing a slip on version of the staple to win, would mean major retooling of their manufacturing process. That said, i hope they do consider making them in the future

      Yeah, Lakai definitely doesn’t have that kind of money. But I was still really impressed with the people who changed parts of the design.

    The fact that the high tops didn’t make the list makes me never want to buy lakais now

    Congrats, but I agree with Jay. That green and red clash and not in a good way. There were way better color ways than this. Out of all the entries I saw, this was one of the worst. Idk, just not into the Christmas look. The high tops should’ve won.
