Lakai x Isle Shoe Launch Gallery

Posted on


Thanks to everyone who came out on Saturday night for the launch of the new Lakai collaboration with Isle on the Griffin XLK. We teamed up with Lakai to put on this night in order to celebrate the launch of their new shoe. We displayed photographs from Sam Ashley, Henry Kingsford and Lex Kembery. These span quite a few years of Nick skating the city, it was nice being able to get these printed and put them together. Nick made some shelves to display the shoes which was a homage to the Isle Curiosities series and we played a video loop made up of the ad for this new shoe, his Eleventh Hour part and Fully Flared which Jacob Harris was good enough to make for us. Add enough free beers to last the whole event, many faces who have been skating the city nearly as long as Nick has as well as some who have just started and you have the makings of another successful event. Here are some photos from the night…

Thanks for looking through these images. We are stoked that we have recently been able to use our new store so much for events. Our new space and location really lend themselves to it so expect us to have more planned for you from now on. For those of you who missed this, we will be bringing you a gallery of the photos we displayed on the night later this week. The next 12 Isle or Lakai purchases from our Covent Garden store will come with one of the prints we displayed on the night.
