The Newport XLK pulls inspiration from our first ever vulcanized style, the Howard Select. Designed to be simple but loaded with performance. The upper has refined bold branding, breathable tongue, with a blend of durable suede and leather materials. This model also features our most advanced XLK™ cupsole plus the added cushioning of the DELUX-LITE™ premium foam sockliner. An evolution of our team favored hex-tread which provides ultimate board feel, added grip, 360 degrees of flex and absorbs maximum impact. The sidewall shape is designed to help support and provide comfort. The entire outsole has been sculpted to reduce weight, stabilize the heel, improve overall movement and absorb maximum impact.
