In 1999, professional skateboarders and best friends Mike Carroll and Rick Howard together founded Lakai Limited Footwear. The name Lakai stems from the word Malakai, which happens to be Mike Carroll’s nickname. With one of the strongest and most diverse teams behind the brand that also includes Eric Koston, Guy Mariano and mutual Utility rider Marc Johnson, Lakai is able to produce originality and skateboard functionality in every shoe and piece of clothing they make. As simply stated from the Lakai family, the shoes they make are “The Shoes We Skate.”
Only a skateboarder can truly understand the indescribable rush you get the second after your first push from the schoolyard, or how about the relief you receive when you find out you're still in one piece after your ill conceived attempt at the local ten stair handrail your buddies coerced you to try... it's all the same and it feels downright great! Lakai understands this the most and wants to add a key ingredient to enhance your daily concoction of simple joy, Flare. Straight from the lab, the Lakai Helluva Drug T-Shirt guarantees that you'll always get a fair dose of pure top-grade Flare... so go ahead children, skate up!! Features include: Lakai screenprint, Premium fit, Top-Tier Columbian Flare, 100% cotton.
