DC Shoes Kalis OG

 

You know your a 90’s skater when you still get the chills at the mention of Josh Kalis. The technique, style and street grace from the OG Love Park ruler has been rocking the DC Shoes brand since day dot pretty much.

 

If your asking why the blog piece on Kalis and Dc Shoes… basically we’ve got a very special re-release due in store very soon. As yet even DC Shoes UK can’t tell us the release date so for now these sure to be highly sort after skate shoes will sit under a watchful protection in our skate store stock room. Keep a look out via our social media platforms for any shoe release updates.

 

So not that we need an excuse but there’s nothing like avoiding the real work piling up and reminiscing on one of our all time faves here at the Black Sheep Store, Sir Style Guru Josh Kalis!

 

This excuse of work basically involves “researching” all our fondest parts from Kalis and delving into the photo archive with long time photographer friend Blabac. These two are like peas in a pod when it comes to sponsored skateboarder and professional photographers. There joint work over the years has created timeless master pieces that no doubt adorn walls World Wide.

A little brief history with Kalis follows and yet more reasons he’s a skaters “skater” favourite. Born and raised in Michigan and known for his integration into many a skate scene World Wide. From stints (and probably the most fondly remembered) in Philadelphia,  Chicago, Dallas and San Francisco plus gracing our European skate world with an much welcomed over stay residency in Barcelona. All this travel whilst staying true with his first love of his family and now settled down in the sunshine capital of Carlsbad, California, US. Josh continues to kill it on his skateboard, being one of the “elders|” of the 90’s street skating movement he show’s no sign of letting up. Good to see DC Skateboarding recognise this lifetime achievement and still honour Kalis with his own range of dope footwear including the all new DC Shoes Kalis S

So with such heritage with Dc Shoes and Josh Kalis it comes as no surprise to see a reprisal of the Kalis OG silhouette. The hype around this shoe from the original release back in 2000 was crazy, every other skater you’d see was rocking the OG Kalis with as many extra padded tongues as humanly possible. The baggy vibe of the early 2000’s could certainly be honoured to Kalis himself along with the tech street movement of the time.

 

So with all this said we’re stoked to announce to be one of the chosen few stockist in the UK to be offering up the DC Shoes Kalis OG. As mentioned above these are currently under lock and key in store but we’ve managed to sneak a few pictures and a coming soon listing for you to drool over.
