Under the direction of Fred Mortagne, Menikmati displays 58 minutes of skateboarding of the finest form.

With a multilayered design that blends full grain waxed leather and suede where it is most needed (this means on the side panels, ready to give the right traction to grip tape) this OG style is ready to make an impression at the skatepark.
Its thick Energy Foam Midsole, together with Molded Energy Foam insole are ready to cushion your impacts properly.
