Vincent Alvarez‘s opening part in Girl and Chocolate’s Pretty Sweet best embodies the ‘Skate and Destroy’ mantra – from its Suicidal Tendencies-assisted soundtrack to the skater’s absolute decimation of any and all terrain in front of him. Lakai isn’t the type of brand to award pro model shoes purely based on pop appeal, which makes the release of Vincent Alvarez’s first model – the Vincent – even more special. The street-ready vulcanized sneaker takes cues from Lakai’s own classic Manchester silhouette, though is a slimmer, more ventilated and more durable take. Lakai has released a commercial for the ‘Trunk Boyz’ crew member, summarizing Alvarez’s harrowing plights in pursuit of the endless summer. Enjoy the video clip above, and be sure to pick up the Vincent on Lakai’s web shop, or at finer skate shops worldwide.
