brand details Lakai
Skate shoes and sneakers
Lakai Footwear Limited is a Californian footwear company. Lakai shoes are designed for and inspired by skateboarding. Founded by professional skateboarders Mike Carroll and Rick Howard in 1999, they felt they could make a contribution to the skate-footwear world by running their own company rather than riding for someone else's. By now, they have a truly magnificent team: Mike, Rick, Marc Johnson, Guy Mariano and Eric Koston. The name Lakai is short for Malakai which is Mike Carroll's nickname.
