DC Shoes and Thrasher Magazine are teaming up to honour the 25th anniversary of legendary skateboarder Josh Kalis. Known for his technical street skating and iconic style, Josh has earned a reputation as a skateboarding icon.

This limited-edition skate capsule collection that pulls inspiration from Josh’s 2018 Thrasher cover and features two of Josh’s favourite things – Philly and Camo.  The collection also debuts co-branded takes on the brand-new Kalynx Zero S and the recently rereleased Truth.

The new Kalynx is a fusion of two of Josh’s favourite DC silhouettes – the Kalis Lite and the Lynx Zero S.  Sporty and skateable, this shoe offers all-day comfort and lightweight construction.  Additionally, the re-release of the Truth is highly anticipated by 2000s skate shoe fans.  This version is uniquely co-branded and wrapped in camo.


“Josh is an all-time great and his cover at Muni is one of my favourite Thrasher fronts. Night shot, glowing buildings in downtown Philly, his iconic nose blunt… It has everything,” says Tony Vitello, President of Thrasher Magazine.  “I’m honoured to help celebrate the 25th anniversary of his pro shoe. I remember getting a pair of his first signature kicks with DC when I was a teenager. I wore them to the SOTY party in SF with my dad and felt like the coolest dude on earth. 25 years later and I’m still hyped to lace up a shoe with his name on it. Big Love.”
