Lakai x Tony Hawk

the proto

“This shoe is an ode to skating’s past and a look towards the future. It looks even better than I imagined, and I am proud to have my name on it.” – Tony Hawk

Lakai Limited Footwear is proud to release its latest model: Tony Hawk’s debut signature model for Lakai - The Proto. Inspired by Tony’s creative impact on skateboarding during the late 80’s and 90’s, the Proto is a modern take on skate shoes of that era.

The Proto is designed and developed to provide support and comfort for everyday skateboarding. The upper’s unique panels were built for durability while its internal sock offers a snug-fit. The nylon webbing strap on the tongue is a nod to the lace savers that vert skaters used to protect their laces while knee sliding. The Proto features an all new advanced XLK™ cup-sole. An evolution of our team favored hex-tread provides ultimate board feel, added grip, 360 degrees of flexibility and absorbs maximum impact. Delux-Lite™ foot beds with custom Powell Peralta x Tony artwork add cushion and support for your feet and heels. It truly is a shoe built for any and every skateboarder.
