DC Lynx Zero says goodbye to puffiness

Skate-centric brand DC takes us back to the golden era of skateboarding by putting its 1998 skate star DC Lynx on the racks once again. Appearing in a partly slimmer build and sitting lower than the original pair is the reworked DC Lynx Zero. DC Lynx skate icon was initially conceptualized to keep up with the abrasiveness of the street sport while offering that street-ready soul. 

With form and function rolled into one, Lynx quickly became a sought-after DC shoe, which even got the nods of pro skaters Stevie Williams and Josh Kalis. DC pays homage to the street culture dominated by hoods by making the DC Lynx more appropriate as a sports shoe and everyday styling staple. On top of that, skate newbies can snag this without going over their budgets as it falls within the market's cheapest range of skate shoes

What’s new?

  • DC stripped down the amount of rubber on the sole while still offering the needed boardfeel.
  • It’s less bulky-looking and less puffy than the previous models, given its narrower build.
  • It comes lighter than the OG weight- and price-wise.
