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
Primary Upper Materials
  • Suede
  • Slip on Neoprene Collar
  • Lux-Lite Insole
  • VLK Performance Vulc

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 - Premium, breathable foam compound

Molded for superior comfort

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.

Lakai Owen VLK Slip-On Shoes - black suede
My first slip, but performs just as well as any laced shoe I've had over the years. No heel-slip and fits nice and snug. Felt broken-in after one session.

Lakai Owen VLK Skate Shoes
I've decided to write another review on these after skating them all the way through. In my previous review, I explained that lakai perfected the Owen with this one, in every way except for the longer rubber on the toe. By this I mean the extra layer of foxing tape around the tip of your toe. Although it made it slightly longer when you first get these, it actually DID NOT affect the sizing. So stick with your normal Lakai size when you cop these!!! By the end of the shoe it felt perfect, as that extra layer of foxing tape wore down to normal. Buy these if you love slip one. Shouts out to Tactics

Lakai Owen VLK Skate Shoes
So I bought the Owen FTC collab and have been skating it for a few weeks now. It was the VLK, they just didn't call it that yet. It would have been perfect. But no, instead of just fixing the sole and leaving the rest that was perfect, they had to "lengthen the upper for improved flick". Now I have to fucking order a half size down than before. I've been only skating Owens in 10.5 forever. Thanks Lakai for fixing the thing sole on the Owen, but NOT ALL OF US WANT MORE FLICK. I pretty much skate transition only. So yeah these actually last now compared to the original Owen, but Lakai made them longer which is completely wack.
