We grew up watching Mike Carroll and Rick Howard in 411 Video Mag and marveling at their abilities as they claimed page after page of Thrasher and Transworld. When they started their company GiRL in 1993 and the brand rose to success almost immediately, nobody was surprised. When the guys left DC Shoes and started Lakai in 1999 it was a big move, but proved to be a smart one. Today you can find over a dozen styles in a myriad of colorways on the company's website. The Vista is our favorite, since with vulcanized construction it's sure to outlast a typical glued sole. Check out the full line HERE and watch the video below for more on this model.
