A straight-forward shoe from a technical skater.
The Beebs—aka Brandon Biebel. If you don't know about him, start by sliding your foot into the Lakai BB3 Skate Shoe. Right off the bat will notice the comfort and support of Lakai's XLK sole construction. And as soon as you first drag the toe across your grip tape (and about 650 kickflips later) you will take note of the durable leather and suede upper. Yup, for a larger-than-life dude, it's no surprise his shoe has larger-than-life comfort, support, and durability.
- XLK sole construction performs with the life-long durability of a cupsole while providing the board feel of a vulc sole
- Suede, leather, and nubuck upper with reinforced stitching on the toe and heel prolongs the life of the shoe
- Gum-rubber outsole provides skateboard-specific traction
- A thicker, molded EVA footbed provides enough support to stand on your feet all the love-long day
- Brandon Biebel pro-model

Break em in
I'm used to skating shoes that I can practically roll up and put in my pocket, so when I first put these on it felt like strapping a piece of wood to my shoe and skating (I could barely even tell where my foot was on the board). As they broke in and I got used to them and I actually feel like I have way more board control in these than with my old shoes (which I loved). They're also holding up pretty well, I skate pretty much daily and after about 3 weeks they're only just starting to really look like a pair of skate shoes. Overall, I'd reccomend them, they look nice and because the sole is pretty thick you shouldn't get bad heel bruises unless you're pulling some Ryan Sheckler type air and they have a nice shape for board control. I'll warn you though, if you're not used to pretty stiff shoes, they take a few solid skate days to break in so dont be disappointed in the purchase immediately.
