Nerdsday Thursday: Lakai Performance Over Years

Fully Flared came out in 2007 where you can see a downward trend was reversed shortly after. A hill bombing started again in 2009. 2009 was the year Koston went from Lakai to Nike SB. Did he bring the shoe sales with him? Who knows, but I'm sure simple teenage minds will react as usual with some combination of comments about not doing it and selling out. I'll save that discussion for another Nerdsday. This month and year, I'd like to think the powersliding slowing down the hill bomb is Lakai's participation in the Spring Roll this weekend
. For 2013, we've seen a bounce back in both year to date and month to date Lakai pairs sold so far. Or, maybe this is an industry-wide thing and not just SPoT? I wonder.
