Lakai Footwear release a limited edition Griffin Gass model of the classic Manchester silhouette, to celebrate him turning professional for Girl Skateboards. Coming in two colorways, durable white leather and a walnut suede, the skate shoes feature custom sockliner artwork and an embroidered tongue with the same graphic as Griffin's debut Girl pro deck.
The Lakai Manchester is staple of their line and, after thirteen years in the market, it has plenty of fans. The vulcanized sole, clean toe and basic panels have made it a skateboarding icon. Features include the Lakai Para-Mount outsole, which provides improved cushioning and helps absorb impact, and the Delux-Lite sockliner which further improves the comfort of the shoe.
This Gass x Girl Skateboards colorway is based around a 'Pure Gass' theme with an old-school gas pump reference linking to Griffin's powerful style and 'full charge' attitude that he brings to his skateboarding. This can be seen in the video above, titled Nervous Circus, celebrating Girl's latest Professional riders in Niels Bennet and Griffin Gass plus the rest of the team including stand-out Rowan .
