This remastered Owen is a skate-tested slip that's all about easy wear. No laces means fewer seams to rip, and a longer upper for better flick. An internal elastic band comfortably hugs your feet for a snug fit. A Lux-Lite insole provides more support than traditional foam without being too thick. The upper is slightly thinner than most traditional shoes, so you may feel a little less protected than usual. VLK construction fuses the foxing tape to the sole for better durability, while ensuring the board feel of a normal vulc. Lakai's signature rubber outsole and tread pattern deliver excellent grip and control right out of the box.
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.
Slip on Neoprene Collar - Easy on, snug fit without even tying the laces.
Lux-Lite Insole - Lux-Lite is a premium, breathable foam compound that's been molded for superior comfort and never packs out.
VLK Performance Vulc - Crated Midsole: Adds structure and durability while protecting against heel bruise. The crated design increases support without sacrificing flexibility.
Radial Edge: The rounded edge provides the performance of a cupsole while maintaining the feel of a vulcanized shoe. This improves heel stability and board feel while offering a minimal break in period.
