In 1999 Mike Carroll and Rick Howard introduced Lakai Limited Footwear with the same dedication and pride they have always invested into their skateboarding and the Girl/Chocolate brands. Simply stated, they are 'The Shoes We Skate'.
Lakai is a Torrance, California based footwear manufacturer that creates shoes designed specifically for skateboarding. Lakai is also part of the Crailtap family, which includes Girl Skateboards, Chocolate Skateboards, Royal Trucks and Fourstar Clothing.
