NOTE ON SIZING

If you are a size US-11 with a wider foot, ( like me ) you will fit a US-10.

If you are a US-9 select a US-8

Comparing to other skate shoes on the market. Please select one size smaller when buying Last Resort AB.

Take a good look at the size chart provided at the bottom of this page. Measure your foot and you will get a great fitting shoe.

The staff at Nordic Skateboard Supply have tried the shoes and we were very impressed with the fit and overall quality.

I  usually take a size US size 11 in existing brands. But with Last Resort  AB I was pleased to find my medium wide foot was very happy in a pair  of US10 with thin socks on, no streatching required.

We were  pleased to find that these shoes fit great right out of the box.  Development of the Last Resort AB footware has focused on detail and it  shows. We hope this is the the very first entry to a great new shoe  brand.

Last Resort AB 

About  our first Shoe: The “VM001” is our first shoe  made solely with   skateboarding in mind - in every detail. A silhouette  that is nice and   simple, just the way we skaters like it. Extensive  testing and   development has gone into creating a highly functional shoe  for   skateboarding and beyond, without compromising style. Every part of   the  shoe is customized for Last Resort AB according to our preferences   and  experience. Our mantra: “Intention to Detail” is incorporated   throughout the entire process resulting in a shoe filled with hidden  functionality. 

The Last: We have modified the shape of the last  to  ensure a better more snug fit where it matters the most. 

The Sole:   We  have created a sole pattern with great grip and stability in mind,   as an  added bonus all angles are slanted in a way that does not  collect   gravel...you’re welcome. The Foxing tape: We have fine tuned  the thickness and height of the tape to ensure great flexibility and  board feel, it’s truly a millimeters game that matters. 

The Upper and Laces:    Panels in the danger zone are reinforced with double stitching. Our    structured laces are made of 100% Cotton, which will age and tear more  gracefully than any poly-mix laces, they will also stay in place better   than the synthetic alternative.

 Last but not least. These  shoes are made by and for Skateboarders around the world, girls and  boys out on the streets having fun, being creative. We don’t have any  corporate  backing,  no one telling us what to do. And neither should  you.  BREAK  FREE

 “I  like turning  dreams into reality. I love creating & making things;  everything  from the perfect shaped board to solving “the skaters pants  nightmare”.  They say, if you can’t find it design it or if you are  unhappy with  something well shut up and make it better. My first big  dream in life  was to become a pro-skater in U.S.A which felt like an  impossible  mission in the 90’s. Well at least when you live in a small  town in  Sweden. With a bit of luck a bit of talent and what not somehow  that  happened. 

At some point in my pro-days I felt that I  wanted to express  my own ideas create my own films & projects.  Present my perspective  on our culture and show how we via DIY spirits,  community, friendship  can create great things together... (dream two)

 Well  about about 10  years ago I felt that I no longer could connect with  the direction our  industry was going, it felt stale & strange. So I  started my own  board company, Polar Skate Co… (dream three) The past  years or so when I  look out at the so called skate shoe landscape there  is something about  it that feels off & weird these huge  corporations running things  their way... It’s a feeling and like I said  above if your are unhappy  with a situation shut up and do something  about it.. (dream four has  started)” – Alv

Me  and my friend Daniel had been working in the apparel industry for well  over a decade before we started our own company in 2018. We named the  company Last Resort AB and the brand “3-3-20”… a seemingly random  numerical sequence that held a personal value, but kind of stupid from a  branding perspective. We began making high-end sneakers, sold in some  stores in Japan only. In 2019 I was talking to Pontus whom I’ve known  since the early nineties through skateboarding in Sweden. He was  chilling at his local beachfront bar in Portugal. We talked about life,  personal values and breaking free from the corporate world. As it turned  out we also shared the same dream in creating a shoe company. We  decided then and there to join forces and re-launch our company with  Pontus onboard as an equal partner. We set a goal to perfect and bring  out our first shoe made for skateboarding and beyond, and we are stoked  to finally release something that really represents our vision and  requirements.
