Tough As Leather

Alongside the usual suede options, Last Resort have introduced all-new leather variants of the VM001 shoe to their lineup. The tough Mill Leather upper provides added durability to help the shoes last. Meanwhile, the textured leather helps maintain strong grip for the perfect flick. This guarantees the longest-lasting performance of any of Last Resort's shoes. Plus, it looks like it's made out of elephant skin which is hella luxurious. With two different colourways on offer, you can keep things simple with black on white. Or, go full gothic with the sleek black on black. Perfect for hitting the streets or looking smart for formal occasions.

The Reds vs. The Blues

Alongside the new suede variants, the Last Resort VM001 shoe also makes a return with new colour options in the suede version. The contrasting Old Red and Old Blue colourways are perfect for injecting some colour into your 'fit and makes a nice change from some of Last Resort's more muted tones. The classic suede upper boasts a perfect blend of grip and durability but with added flexibility compared to the leather version. There's a reason suede shoes are the most popular choice for skaters around the world: they look good, feel good, and skate good.
