Commercial: Lakai x Baker Riley Hawk Collection [17/6/2019]
Riley came to Lakai after the launch of his Dads shoe, inspired by the commercial that Tony and Manchild had created. He wanted to do something similar, a conceptual commercial with a collection to match. Riley decided to create an 80s Dogtown vibe with the shoes, apparel, and commercial. Baker was down to make it a co-branded project, and the rest is history.

The Skate Gods had our backs and we skated every day, for 2 weeks straight, with an occasional snow ball fight and sledding rev snuck in.
