DC Lynx Lite Zero History

DC Shoes, Inc. has established itself as a promising and well-known footwear brand that specializes in performance skate shoes. Over the years, it has designed and manufactured famous and iconic DC skate shoes that not only dominate the skate market but the general sneaker market as well. The quality, comfort, durability, and style of these shoes have made them easily recognized even outside the walls of skate parks by casual consumers.

The DC Lynx is one of the most popular performance-based skate shoes that the American brand created. Considered a classic and an icon, it was one of the brand's frontrunners in the late ‘90s. It was a favorite among skateboarders - professionals and amateurs alike, and even hobbyists or casual wearers.

The DC Lynx came a long way since its popularity peaked in 1998. It has been reissued and rereleased a number of times throughout the years, and further received some upgrades through recent renditions. One of these is the DC Lynx Lite Zero.

The DC Lynx Lite Zero is a lighter and slimmer version of the original DC Lynx skate shoe. It utilizes a no-sew leather upper combined with DC’s UniLite rubber sole technology to cut down some weight, and Ortholite insoles for added comfort. Other features include DC Lynx’s signature T-toe overlays and Ghillie lace closure. The DC Lynx Lite Zero is available in brown, blue, black, and navy.
