First introduced in 2000, The Fade makes its return to the line 21 years later. The newly reinvented Fade consist of a durable suede and breathable mesh upper. Translucent welded highlights line the side profile. Rounded off with a hidden lacing system and subtle branding details. The upper is placed on our new advanced flexible XLK cupsole.
Cupsole - Durable and shock-absorbing to provide the best impact protection against hard landings. Cupsoles generally last longer than a vulcanized sole but don't provide as much flexibility and board feel right out of the box.
Delux-Lite Sockliner - Uses premium foam that never packs out and is designed with a deep contour heel and arch for superior comfort.
Hex Tread - Hex shaped tread for 360° flexibility made from dual density rubber.
XLK™ Construction - Lakai's precision molded rubber cupsole with a drop-in soft EVA midsole for comfort and impact absorption.
