Last Resort AB VM001 Hi Black/White
Product DescriptionLast Resort AB is a new footwear brand with the prime purpose of creating shoes that, simply put, are amazing for skateboarders. The company's mantra is a simple one, 'Intention to Detail'. This is reflected throughout its design process, right down to the shoe box, in order to create skate shoes filled with hidden functionality, specifically for skateboarding. The company is owned and operated by Sami and Pontus Alv, the head of Polar Skate Co.
The first release from Last Resort AB features the VM0001 silhouette which is presented in three colours - black, mustard yellow and moss green. The VM0001 skate shoe is a low top silhouette with every part of the shoe being customised for Last Resort.
The last has been modified for a more snug fit, the sole pattern is designed with grip and stability in mind, as well as with slanted angles so as to stop gravel and other detritus from being collected. The thickness of the foxing tape has been fine-tuned for optimum flexibility and board feel.
The panels in high-wear areas, around the toe box where you ollie, have been reinforced with double stitching to aid with durability. The shoes' laces are made from 100% cotton, this is in order to help them stay in place better than synthetic laces, and also to age and tear more gracefully.
