Last Resort AB VM001 Shoes in Black and White. As the first footwear style to arrive from the brand and created solely with skateboarding in mind, the monochrome Last Resort AB VM001 is a reflection of simplicity and quality with it’s durable suede uppers, canvas lining and hard wearing rubber sole. Created with extensive testing and development to ensure a high level of function, every part of the shoe has been customised according to the brands preferences and experiences within skateboarding. The white lace up fastening features branded aglets and ensures a secure, customisable fit held in place by punched eyelets on top of a curved edge border which has been double top stitched for longevity. Beneath this, the tongue has been cut from the same suede as the uppers and features a red and white woven label that features signature Last Resort AB artwork. Additional panelling can be found on the back of the heel in addition to a rubber stamp design on the outsole which shows a playful cartoon graphic. Throughout the inside of the shoe a soft canvas lining has been added and the crisp white vulcanised rubber outsole is destined to stand up to the test of time thanks to the inclusion of a foxing strip line and a grip-focused tread pattern.
Following their own mantra of ‘Intention to Detail’ Last Resort AB is a new independent skater own footwear brand on the scene and portrays a vision to create simplistic shoes that suit everyone whether you’re skating or exploring by foot. Founded by Polar Skate Co’s Pontus Alv and a close friend, the brand hopes to be an alternative to the larger scale footwear companies currently dominating the industry as well as over-branded styles.
