If you want to go big without destroying your heels, but still want the board feel to pull off tech tricks, check out the Lakai Howard Men's Skate Shoe. It features Lakai's XLK sole, which gives you the shock absorbing and support benefits of a traditional cup sole, while still retaining excellent board feel thanks to strategically thinned rubber and Equa-Form cushioning.
- Suede upper is durable, and canvas sections increase breathability
- EVA midsole and footbed absorb shock from harsh landings
- XLK sole provides the comfort and support of a cup sole shoe, but with the rubber replaced with Equa-Form cushioning in strategic areas to shave weight and improve board feel
