Last Resort VM001 Suede New Colourways

Last Resort's flagship model, the VM001, has made its triumphant return in both high- and low-top variants with some extremely tasteful new colourways. The dull tones of the all-new 'Dusty Blue' and 'Sage' suede uppers make these shoes the perfect choice for seeing out the end of winter in style, while the black soles provide a lovely bit of contrast and make a nice change to the dominance of white soles in some of their previous drops. As with all of Last Resort's shoes so far, the VM001 and other shoes in this collection feature a vulcanised construction for maximum boardfeel and flick.

Last Resort VM001 Canvas High

Alongside the Last Resort suede high-top VM001 in the Dusty Blue/Black colourway, the high-top VM001 is also available in a sleek black canvas for that ultimate Converse aesthetic. Don't worry about losing out on durability though, these bad boys feature built-in rubber reinforcement beneath the canvas to help protect against holes while still maintaining the lightweight feel and breathability of canvas shoes. These guys know what they're doing.

All-New Last Resort VM003 Canvas Lo

On top of the return of everyone's favourite models, Last Resort have blessed us with a brand spanking new model for this drop, the all-vegan Last Resort VM003 Canvas Lo available in timeless White/White and Black/White colourways. The shoe features a low-top silhouette with a more rounded toe than Last Resort's other models which gives off some serious old-school tennis shoe vibes. With a canvas upper and lining these vegan skate shoes are just as good for the planet as they are for skating due to the lack of animal products in their construction but, just like the VM001 Canvas High, these bad boys pack a reinforced rubber underlay in high-wear areas to maintain that much needed durability.

New Last Resort Skate Clothing

The latest drop from Last Resort also features a new selection of skate clothing with some top-tier designs. The 'Wall' tee - available in Black and White colourways - features a minimalist 'Last Resort AB' chest print with a large graphic on the back depicting a shoe kicking through a brick wall alongside Last Resort's 'Break Free' slogan - seems like there's some kinda subtext here.

Alongside the 'Wall' tee, Last Resort have come through with a bangin' new hood that's pretty on brand for CSC with its dragon-based graphic. In contrast to our Welsh dragons, Last Resort's 'Dragon' hood draws influence from Norse mythology with the back graphic depicting a Viking warrior, holding a Last Resort shield, slaying a fierce Norse dragon with 'Last Resort AB' written in a font inspired by Norse runes on its tail. They didn't stop there though as the hoodie aalso their 'Break Free' slogan down the sleeves in the same Norse-inspired font, alongside their classic minimalist chest logo. They were clearly inspired by our recent series of dragon-based tees, but we'll let you have this one Pontus.
