The “VM001” is Last Resort AB's first shoe made solely with skateboarding in mind - in every detail. They've created a sole pattern with great grip and stability in mind, as an added bonus all angles are slanted in a way that does not collect gravel...you’re welcome. They have fine tuned the thickness and height of the tape to ensure great flexibility and boardfeel, it’s truly a millimeters game that matters. Panels in the danger zone are reinforced with double stitching. Their structured laces are made of 100% Cotton, which will age and tear more gracefully than any poly-mix laces, they will also stay in place better than the synthetic alternative.
