Taka’s first release this season features the Taka Hayashi Snake Trail LX in three colorways. Originally an extension of the Lampin, this silhouette brings a mid-top option to the retro ’90s skate style. Taka DNA runs throughout and can be seen in the heel strip detail, deco stitch at the ankle collar, and detailed printed lace. Vibes are high with Snake Trail LX—the foxing tape wishes everyone to "Have a Vantastic Trip!!!" Available at Select Vault Dealers August 2020.
