The Third rendition of Riley Hawks pro model shoe for Lakai Limited Footwear. It's safe to say Riley Hawk has had the most pro shoes for Lakai and is certainly killing it in the streets and the park.
The Riley 3 is a stripped down version of the Riley 2. Taking things back to basics has really allowed Lakai and Riley to focus on other aspects of the skate shoe. Removing the slip on / lace up interchangeability and sticking with a simple 4 eyelet lace up system allows a secure & snug fit to be achieved.
Lakai has introduced a hidden seam toe-cap. Providing a double layer of suede at the point which receives the most abuse increases the life time of this shoe. Combining this with Lakai's PARA-mount Outsole gives this skate shoe an incredible life line.
The Delux-lite Sockliner has also been removed from this shoe. This increases board feel but does remove the impact reduction provided by the delux-lite liner. With a deep heel cup aids in reducing heel slip from this skate shoe.
