The CALI Strong Rasta OC Skate Shoe is classic style built for skateboarding. A smart sk8 kick provides a combination of performance and comfort. Traditional black laces and a padded collar secure your foot, while the cushioned insole absorbs impact. The cold cement soles give you solid board control while protecting your feet from grip tape and concrete. The premium canvas and suede upper and simple lace up design make these sneakers a California icon.
