If we’d taken bets on whether Tony Hawk’s son was destined for skating greatness, then we’re sure there would have been plenty of takers. As it is, Riley Hawk proved himself as a skating pro specialising in the streets, and has gained legendary status among fans of the sport in his own right. Naturally, we imagine he can have his pick of men’s skate shoes, from one brand to the next, so it’s exciting that he’s now teamed up with Lakai to bring us a range with his name on it.
With a style differing from his dad’s famous vert skateboaring, Riley Hawk is known for his street skating and this has transitioned clearly into the footwear he chooses. Founded in 1999 in California by pro-skaters Mike Carroll and Rick Howard, Lakai have built a dedicated following through loyalty to their purpose and integrity in their sports heritage. They have grown steadily to become a recognised household name here in the UK.
schuh are proud to be stocking two of the Lakai Riley Hawk skate shoes. Arriving in neutral tones of light tan and black, as you may have expected they’re as understated, unassuming and cool as the man himself. With premium suede materials and a durable rubber sole unit, the clean lines do the talking for the minimalist style. Get them now; we don’t imagine they’ll hang around long.
