The review about this product
I don't like Vulcanized shoes very much, so when I started with Lakai I decided to go with their cup sole shoes (Howards, Telford XLK and this shoe). I'm really happy with the slim profile and they still hold up very well. The sole is a little thicker than expected but nothing too crazy (like the heel of a Buzinitz). The DC Mike Mo's are the closest comparison to these shoes.
Highly recommended and of course; Support your local! Unless you live somewhere with no skate shops then this will work just fine.
