Pulling inspiration from Lakai's first ever vulcanized shoe, the Howard Select, the Newport is designed with a simple silhouette but loaded with performance features. The Para-Mount™ outsole with Hex tread give the shoe ample cushioning, grip, and longevity. The Delux-Lite™ sock liner is designed with a deep heel cup for stability and contoured arch comfort.
Vulcanized - “Vulc” shoes are light, flexible and break in quickly. The sole consists of several layers of rubber, glued together then attached to the upper with rubber foxing tape. Vulcanized soles don’t provide as much foot protection or support as cupsoles, but they are preferred if you’re looking for good board feel in a shoe with less weight and bulk.
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.
Para-Mount Advanced Density Outsole - Para-Mount outsole technology utilizing dual density rubber to absorb high impact and reduce fatigue.
Reinforced in arch and medial sidewall for added protection and support.
