Since 1999, Lakai has been creating skateboarding shoes with the same dedication and pride they have at the skatepark. Up your skate game with the Lakai Kids MJ2 Select, a durable suede, nubuck, or leather upper skate shoe that was designed and tested by skate genius Marc Johnson. This model features a small hint of embroidery at the side stripes to add a subtle pop of color while offering form-fitting upper gives you that increased board feel. If you are looking for a shoe that really pops, the Manchester Select lets you emphasize your mad skills while you prove your talent. This gnarly kids skateboard shoe packs a suede or leather form-fitting upper that gives your little skater improved board feel. Check out the full line of Lakai Kids products available on Zappos.com.
There are skateboard shoes; then there are Fallen skateboard shoes. The difference is that pro skater Jamie Thomas sought to create a skateboard shoe for skateboarders, by skateboarders, when he founded Fallen. Thomas knows that your kicks have to be able to stand the true test of tearing up skateparks and the streets so he put together a team that includes pros Chris Cole, Billy Marks and Josh Harmony to develop his vision. The Fallen team put the same development into their kids shoes as their adult line.
The Chris Cole inspired Fallen Kids Trooper SL packs a huge punch for being so lightweight. For added protection, Fallen added a thin rubber layer under the toe-piece and crafted the shoe in genuine suede. You can rock the same shoes as Fallen founder Jamie Thomas in the Fallen Kids Rival SL, a slick pair of skating kicks that utilizes an asymmetric stabilizer for medial upper support. Check out all of the Fallen Kids products on Zappos.com and be sure to check out the Fallen team this summer at the X Games.
