“To each his own, I’ma have this known from the door/I make ni**az walk like ball four” (Roz)





It’s a collaboration, bit***s!. “The shoes we skate” is what Lakai limited footwear claims, but this time leave skateboarding out for a minute. Think about skating a couple of days in a row, landing tricks down stairs, bailing, hitting hard on your heels. What you want to do the day after, if you’re not under 25, is to chill. Recharge those batteries. Scenario number two: you feel like going out with your girl, give her some quality time starting from that pizza place that she likes a lot. You can’t hit that spot with holes in your shoes, right? Up to now you were wearing “those other brands” to hang out in your non-skating time but now Lakai has the solution to let you stay true to your game. The Muni is an extremely lightweight running shoe that Lakai is proud to present us. Born from a joint venture with the Italian company called Vibram, this sneaker is the answer to the question “What should I wear now that I’m not going to skate”. Vibram is this company from Varese that is the equivalent to G-Dep in hip hop music when it comes to soles: like make up, I got it all covered. If you’re bamiliar with boat shoes, boots and other trekking kicks you may have seen this brand out for a minute. Let’s put it like this: it’s the godfather of all gum soles. That’s why Lakai teamed up with them. It’s called quality, my friend. A tacky gum sole that, together with a lightweight molded eva footbed and a cut and buff eva midsole, make these suede kicks an offical chill item. Mike Carroll and Rick Howard founded this company in 1999 and since then this brand has been synonymous with skate progression and fun. Not bad, you may say. It’s the bomb, I reply! I’m all about taking things lightly and this is a brand that wants his riders (and you) to skate without forgetting to smile. I give them a special shout out for their am Daniel Espinoza that, beside the big names involved in the team that deserve props, got my attention for his smooth and careless spontaneous style. You’d better check him out in this old clip, when he became part of Lakai familia with an editing by Federico Vitetta, another Italian element in this post. Consider that Fresco is distributing this brand in the best Italian shops and for now it’s case closed with spaghetti and mandolin tales…
