FULLY FLARED, FULLY GIRL old, but a really sad one.

i think they are blowing it by kicking Lenoce out.



Teams change, people become less motivated,  move away and get new friends or skate less. Lakai NEEDS younger more motivated relevant ams/pros that are down to promote their product by being out there in the mix doing demos and contests and appealing to A younger demographic. I have no doubts there are no hard feelings and there is a  bigger picture than staying true to an original team. Look at all the companies out there and pick out how many OG team members they have. I bet for most of them it's ZERO. In a market dominated by massive corporate shoe brands, small guys like Lakai,Dekline and sole tech can't afford to be too understanding. Few people seem to really care about what they support vs how much it cost them or brand affiliation when it comes to footwear. I'm not knocking Welsh or Lenoce, I've enjoyed all the footage they've put out but times have changed, and not in a way I like. But at least companies like Lakai/girl take riders and offer them jobs elsewhere within the ranks. Like sj,rudy and others. It's a bummer but business is business. They signed contracts and had obligations.

It really is pronounced "action"?  'Axion' was an existing word before the shoe company (it's a hypothetical particle, bros), and it is pronounced "acks-ee-on".

That being said Axion's current (and past) team is fucking awesome and I would buy a pair of the Heritage black/gum ones if I saw em at the shop.

What I yearn for each and every day is Savier to come back.

He always felt like the odd one out, I suppose Wu-Welsh is next if not already.

If Riley Hawk and Daniel Espinoza were off the team tomorrow, would you guys go out and buy a pair of Lakais? Since I'm sure the answer is no, why do you care?

I've tried them on just to try them on, super flexy thin cupsole, and comfortable.  They feel good, certainly in the running for my next shoe.

Also know two guys who are on their 2nd and third pair in a row.  So, they must be working for some people.
