It doesn't look bad, personally not my style but it's still a pretty sweet looking shoe. They look dope in the manchild clip:

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.
Is it? I'd wear my kid's pro model all the time too, and be fucking hyped about it.

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've never owned a pair of lakais, and have turned down used pairs but these I like. Who'd have thought Tony would come up with one of their better designs?

erm, not sure about these.
I like Lakai, I used to skate Airwalk Bruisers and 600s & 540s.
These, probably not, but thank you anyway tony.

im baffled at who you are thinking these are marketed to that would put them back on the map.

its going to be weird seeing bowl trogs wearing lakais


I'm a member of the Old Man Club but even I don't know where some of the Full Pad-Frontside Grind Only gets their shoes from.

Vans models that look 20 years old, Etnies that look like Jordans, Metal Mulisha DCs...

Because they never buy anything. That actually makes sense. Lakai is going for the people-who-don't-buy-shoes demographic.

which is why you will be seeing a bunch of 40+ers wearing these like 3-5 years from now wondering what the fuck they are because they havent been made in years.

This thread is important thanks for sharing.

Quiet, tool.

No, he's right. You could have shared your opinion in any of the shoe threads talking about it already. Instead you started a new thread in the wrong section. Great work.

Oh and the david loy is kinda tight now thread, thank heavens THATS still on the first page. Fuck off dude.

Did you just low key call d'Loy a shoe in a really sassy, roundabout way?

Lol no. I was referring to the thread titled “david loy looks kinda sick now”. I believe that was the title.

Pretty sure that was gonna be ravens shoe, swear i saw a story post or catalog with them as raven samples.  Makes sense with them looking like jordans

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.

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

There was another one in the catalog. I think it was black suede, can't remember right now, but it looked way better.

It makes so much sense but it’s such an insult to pass it down to Tony.

those are different from the white and grey colorway, the collar is taller and it looks bad. hopefully the white ones are the true shape.
