The following information was released by DC Shoes.
DC Shoes yesterday announced the release of its redesigned Lynx shoe to celebrate DC Shoes’ 20th anniversary. DC Shoes, founded by skaters who have always designed footwear with skateboarder’s needs in mind, originally launched the now iconic Lynx in 1998 when it quickly became one of the most popular skate shoes in the industry. Pro skaters Josh Kalis, the first DC pro to be featured in the shoe, will appear in the new ad campaign along with newer rider Matt Miller.
The sleeker, more streamlined Lynx sports the nostalgic grey and orange colorway, but has been updated with the newest technology. It has a Super Suede™ TPU backed upper, a sandwich mesh tongue and vent holes for breathability, an internal mesh sleeve for the most comfortable fit, and an abrasion resistant rubber outsole. Different colorway combinations will be released every season for the rest of 2014.
“For years people have been asking us to re-release the Lynx shoe and this modern version perfectly symbolizes our long history and forward commitment to progression, said Jeff Taylor, Senior Vice President, Global Brand and Marketing for DC Shoes. “With 2014 being DC’s 20th anniversary, there was no better time than now to bring the Lynx back.”
