Presenting Drop 2 from Last Resort AB, the skate shoe company, headed up by Pontus Alv. Last Resort create great looking, simple shoes with plenty of hidden functionality, specifically for skateboarding.
This second collection sees more colorways of the instant classic VM001 model, the all new VM001-Hi shoe, and the introduction of the Last Resort AB skate team which includes Nick Rios, Chris Milic and Ludvig Hakansson.
The VM001 is a low top skate shoe with each individual part of the shoe having been customised for Last Resort. Carrying over from the first collection is the black and white suede colorway, this is joined by new options including all black, a contrasting white and black model and the choice navy and black. The VM001 boats a suede upper with a canvas lining, a PU collar, rubber sole and foxing and cotton laces.
All-new for Drop 2 is the VM001-Hi Suede which is initially available in four colorways - black and white, all black, white and black and navy and black. Constructed to the same specifications at the low top model, the Hi features the greater ankle protection afforded by a hi-top skate shoe.
All Last Resort shoes are designed to have a snug, secure fit. The sole pattern is created to maximise grip and stability, with slanted angles in the tread stop gravel and other bits from getting stuck in the sole. The foxing tape is fine-tuned to give the best possible flexibility and board feel.
Suede panels in the ollie area around the toe box are double stitched to increase the lifespan of the shoe, whilst the laces are constructed from 100% cotton, which means they will hold in place better than standard synthetic laces and age and tear more gracefully.
