Title: Birdman Lakai pro moodel
Post by: Putaslocas on September 05, 2018, 05:22:09 PM
Not gonna lie, a few of my friends and myself are especially stoked on the new tony hawk lakai pro model, the proto. Not sure when it drops but definitely looking forward to it. Do you guys think this shoe is gonna help lakai get themselves back in the game? If you wanna see photos google “lakai proto” dont feel like getting a code to post here. Or check lakais recent post of manchild sporting them in a park clip.

I'm just glad the catalog doesn't show the shoe with that fucking hideous Velcro lace cover. If that was a feature that was built in or included the designer should have been fired and blacklisted from the industry. I want Lakai to stay around. Rickk and Mike have contributed a lot to skateboarding and i would like to see them have continued success and be able to rebuild and grow for 20 more years. I've been happy with the shoes I've had from them the past 2 years, the Owen is by far my favorite slip on currently on the market and I like the Freemont too. However, they dropped the ball on this! The Money on designing this shoe should have been used to travel and film some promos or swoop up someone lost in the shuffle at Adidas or Nike which would make some noise having a pro jump ship to Lakai.

You can see where they are going for the look for the Enigma, but the should have just updated the Telford or something. they wanted to go for the late 80s skate shoe look but also wanted to make it look like a Jordan too. The Telford is a dunk rip off that would have looked great in Jordan colorways.

It looks better in some of the other colors people have posted before.  I don't hate it, but the sole is off to me,

It's funny that he was skating the Riley 1s almost exclusively before he officially got on and while they were still in production and now his pro model is nothing like it.

I dig them. I think is tight that Lakai and Tony are doing something that Tony can back and probably designed 100%, not just  some basic black top - white sole that every fucking brand does.

I will buy these for sure if I can.

The shoe looks sick, I just hate the colorway.

Silhouette looks cool, kinda lynxy style and I have recently been skating Lakai griffins with the xlk cupsole wchich I like really much. I just fucking hate that black toebox. ugh.

Btw: I saw a clip of the birdman skating the supreme bowl La with those on and I thought he was skating fucking jordan 11's.

This shoe in white:

They look like the old lakai models when they took 2 weeks to properly break in, but would actually last a little while once they were broken in.

You picked the wrong part that I thought was funny. I get why he's skating his kid's show. Is funny that he liked it so much, mentioned how it was his favorite shoe at the time and had exactly what he wanted in a shoe, and then released a pro model that is nothing like it.

i tend to agree re the design, there's something a bit off (unsuccessful?) about it. like a work in progress or a sample shoe. maybe they'll tighten it up for version 2.0, if there is one. makes sense they're doing it as a limited run, i hope people who like it actually do buy it/they get encouraging feedback. seems risky but tony hawk is a big/crossover name so maybe it'll work?

not sure they had to budget extra ps, everything is done in-house at lakai. anyone have a pic of alternate colourways
