The Lakai Essex in Black/Gold Suede. The Black/Gold Suede Essex is Lakai's take on “Crafted Modern Design.” Classic material blocking and functional tech paneling allow for maximum breathability and instant break-in right out of the box. A timeless one-piece toe design fused with 3D printed lateral texture add durability where it’s needed. The dual purpose eye-stay construction is engineered with lace saving tech without the build up of materials. Combined with our Para-Mount outsole technology consists of dual density rubber that provides cushioning that challenges a cupsole. The Hex-tread pattern is designed for maximum board feel. Each Hex pod moves independently which gives 360 degrees of flexibility. The new premium foam Delux-Lite sockliner is designed with a deep heel cup for stability and contoured arch for comfort. All things considered, the Essex is the perfect balance of classic and modern design built to perform.
