Shoe of the Week : Lakai Pico XLK

Company : Lakai Limited
Skater : Lakai Team (but lets go with Guy Mariano, Happy Birthday by the way)
Color : Bison Suede (Brown/Brown Gum)
Weight : 11oz.
Construction : This rare cup sole released this spring by our friends over at Crailtap has a form fitting suede and canvas upper that give this shoe insane comfort and flexibility. Lakai specializes in vulc but their "XLK" sole is their slightly more bulked up and more supportive version that provides all the cushion you need while still providing solid board feel. The XLK collection is typically offered in most of Lakai's best selling models to provide the cupsole skater with Lakai options. This Pico XLK is exactly that. I decided to do this specific one because it reminded me of a lot of those sick late 90's early 2000's colorways which are starting to trend again with companies like ES reemerging and bringing back a bit of a nostalgic style once again to skateboarding. Now to honor the GOAT himself on his birthday, enjoy Guy Mariano doing his Guy thing, as always in "the shoes we skate".
