Model: BEAMS x DC Kalis OG
Key Features: The DC Kalis is super OG and this double-tongued take by BEAMS is a pitch-perfect reference to skate culture of the ‘90s. A yellow notebook tag is found under the top tongue. This standout feature alludes to the way skaters would cut the tongue out of shoes and slip them into the sneakers they skated in for extra padding.
Release Date: Available now.
Buy: BEAMS Japan locations and DCShoes.com.
Editor’s Notes: DC Shoes and legendary pro-skater Josh Kalis have linked up with luxury retailer BEAMS Japan to create a skate culture-centric BEAMS x DC Kalis OG sneaker, through the BEAMS SSZ (Surf, Skate, Zine) division.
The nostalgic kicks are dedicated to Kalis’ signature DC pair released back in 2000. The reinterpreted shoe even has a double-tongue feature that pays tribute to ‘90s skate culture.
It is currently sold out online, so stay tuned for further updates.
