DC Kalis S Style
DC Shoes, Inc. honored pro skateboarder Josh Kalis’s legacy in modern street skateboarding by releasing the DC Kalis S skate shoes as a reinterpretation of his classic shoe. The low-top skate shoe resembles the original pro model from the 90s infused with modern technology.
As versatile as most DC skate shoes, the Kalis S is offered in several colorways such as White/Black/Gum, Black/White/Red, Red/Black/Grey, Navy/White, and Blue/White Blue. It can be worn with jeans, pants, or shorts for a casual getup in and out of skate parks.
DC and Josh Kalis came up with a modern skate shoe that radiates the pro skater's legacy in the skate community. Equipped with design and construction that can withstand every wear and tear of the sport, the Kalis S skate shoe has a one-piece Super Suede toe, which is 50% more durable than regular suede, paired with an abrasion-resistant sticky rubber outsole. It also features an internal cleatie construction for a secure fit.
