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.

Heritage Reissue: LYNX OG – GO6 (Sixth Sense)

Heritage Reissue: LYNX OG – GO6 (Sixth Sense)

DC shoes are celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Lynx. DC is providing a limited classic reissue of the iconic style. A DC team favorite and industry staple since the late 90s, the Lynx was synonymous with DC team riders such as Josh Kalis and Brian Wenning before they found themselves attaining pro model status. Back in 1998 a handful of pairs were made exclusively in this colorway for the DC team to test while the shoe was still in the development stages. The following year a similar colorway made it into production and became an instant classic. The Lynx quickly became the go to shoe in skateboarding during the turn of the decade.

 

 

This was in part thanks to Josh Kalis’ Transworld Sixth Sense video part being filmed around this time. This rider colorway attained Holy Grail status and had people wondering what those shoes were and where could they find them. Now you can check that 20 year old bucket list and wear the colorway that was never was. To be poetic, you could say, the colorway that got away.

 

All the mystery behind these shoes makes the Lynx one of DC’s most requested shoes ever. Sporting multilayered suede/leather upper matched with undeniable DC heritage style.

 

This super limited edition LYNX OG -G60 is coming very soon to Black Sheep. DC Shoes have already announced that they have sold out completely of this LYNX. So, if you want it get it before they are all gone.

You can shop the heritage reissue and all DC shoes here: https://www.blacksheepstore.co.uk/dc-shoe-co.html
