Lakai Fura High Dunham
Lakai Womens Skate Shoe
Golden Globe winner Lena Dunham is best known for writing, directing, producing and acting in Girls, the original series she created for HBO. This particular sneaker collaboration was inspired by a workshop my sister Grace and I did at Young Women Empowered, an arts organization in Seattle encouraging young women to express themselves through writing and art. The girls are a beautiful, brave and diverse gang of poets and thinkers- who also happened to have adorable personal style. Grace and I wanted to find a creative way to send funds in their direction, and also design a product they'd actually be excited to sport- something by women, for women, with whimsy and humor. That's why I enlisted my old friend Joana Avillez to draw a range of fantastical women. - LENA A portion of the proceeds will be go to the Y-WE A high top rendition of a team favorite. The Fura High features a notched collar construction that allows for more movement of the ankle than traditional high-tops. The large ollie panel and a one piece toe dressed in suede provide excellent performance and durability.
