Agenda Sneak Peek: DC Shoes Fall ’15 – Part 2

Introducing the Chris Cole Lite 3 from DC, in grey/blue/grey. - $85

Introducing the Chris Cole Lite 3 from DC, in grey/blue/grey. – $85

Chris Cole is no stranger to shocking skateboarding and his newest pro model may very well do the same. With every technical element from DC shoes, but the kitchen sink (and Super Rubber), the Chris Cole Lite 3 looks to bring durability and functionality further than any of his previous models.

A screened high abrasion toe cap surrounds his traditional one piece toe in order to preserve twice as much as ever before. With Super suede being as strong as it it, you can only imagine how much stronger this CC3 model will be with this new screen process. It has bits of aluminum mixed in with the application and once applied, the screened toe acts as a rubber toe, except it’s better mended to the shoe. We’re extremely curious to see how this new process handles in the coming months. As if that weren’t enough, DC’s introducing another new piece of technology with their newest “Super Stitch”, featured on the CC3 model. What do you guys make of CC’s latest pro model? Did he go too tech? Or just tech enough to combine the efforts of a stylish shoe while making something durable for everyone? Here’s a better view of the screened toe cap and the Super Stitch technology. Also comes in an off-white/red colorway.

Nyjah's 2 pro model is out now but is coming in these additional colorways for Fa'15. - $110.

Nyjah’s 2nd pro model is out now but is coming in these additional colorways for Fa’15. – $110.

Where we find Mikey’s 2nd shoe questionable (even though it looks dope) due to a lack of footage, it’s the polar opposite with Nyjah and his N2 pro model. Aside from being on a completely different caliber of skating, Nyjah has undoubtably earned his 2nd pro model from DC shoes. As with Chris Cole’s model, the N2 has all of DC’s best efforts packed into one shoe. The only additional element found in the N2 that separates it from the rest of DC’s collection is the use of Super Rubber. Word of mouth suggests that DC’s been testing the N2 internally for a while now and no matter the skate rat, no one can seem to get through the N2. Being a site that thrives on breaking down shoes, we’re even more curious about the functionality of the N2. In classic fashion, Nyjah’s been advertising his newest pro model in the best way possible: by skating the shit out of it. If you’ve taken notice on his IG, you’ll see nothing but a collection of skate clips, all of which that’ll blow you away…not to mention the occasional girl group photo. Don’t get #Friendzoned Nyjah!

The debate as to whether the N2 mirror’s its cost is going to continue but something tells us that if skater’s embrace it once and fall in love with its functionality/durability, this may be one of the better models to debut in 2015.

If we reminisce about one of the better models of 2014, you’ll find one of our better experiences lie with the Matt Miller S. For Fall ’15, Miller’s are coming in this black and orange colorway. The Wes Kremer’s are also coming in a more subtle colorway with the exception of a rubber toe cap. Whereas the CC3 has a screened toe cap, the Kremer’s have a heat transfered toe and acts as more of a cover over the toe. Looks a bit thicker as well.

The DC Lynx continues its legacy. Coming in Black/ Army Gum. - $80

The DC Lynx continues its legacy. Coming in Black/ Army Gum. – $80

The DC Lynx’s Prestige S has been retooled to work even better than its previous reincarnation. Rather than the deco stitching that was taking over the shoe world at one point, this hyperscreened counterpart is now replacing it. It offers an even sleeker look and with this screen technology, offers so much more longevity than ever before. We’ve been fortunate enough to see some upcoming colorways with this new application that DC is using and something tells us that you’re going to like the DC Lynx’s even more than before.

More from DC in the coming days. They’ve even got a proper reissue coming out. Care to take any guesses?

    Not too sure about the Chris Cole’s new shoe design, it’s “boxy” and reminiscent of the Etnies Marana. He’s taking a chance on this one…

    The cc3 looks good they combined the sole of the cole 2 and improved the durability with the toe cap

    Chris Cole is kind of a dork. a big muscle-ly dork that wears wristbands. so, of course he has ugly shoes. what i do like is that DC didnt put their ugly block logo on the side. it doesnt fit anywhere.
    the lynx and kremer look like great skate shoes but man, i wish they would get away from this logo on the side. it’s awkward

    With the lack of good dunks over here in the UK, it would be a dream for DC to re-issue a slimmed down Manteca… Guess i’ll have to keep dreamin’.

    weirdly in aus there is no real debate about the nyjah 2’s cost vs performance. seems that all “tech” dc cost $120 which make them cheaper than nike which also seem to all be given a uniform price of $160 in aus.

      Yeah, I agree.

      I have not seen anyone skating them here, but I cant believe that theyre only 120 here, when theyre 110 in america. That means that they would be cheaper to buy them here! Great news.

      DC have got they’re head in the game, and I want to try both the Nyjah and the Wolf. Have you skated the Nyjah?

      Good work DC and thanks RL for the sneak peak.

    Really digging the black and white Cole lite 3, they look amazing. Just wondering, is DC still gonna make the Cole lite 2 or is it going to be discontinued?

    Straight up, I’m impressed. The CC3 looks awesome, like the kind of shoe where you just looking at it makes you wanna skate! The man is skate genius. On the N2- I don’t care if it looks whack, it reminds me of the awesome Zoom Tre that Nike made ~6 years ago and those were tanks. I’d love to get a pair! Only question is how in blazes can I afford both heheh. Btw… can’t eva hate on Cole’s style because at his (relative) old age he still skates within the top 1% of pros.

    I ripped my N2s pretty quick, the suede was gone within 2 days, and 2 days later i was down to the mesh. They also started to blow out in that 4 day period (around 10 hours of skating). There are also holes in the suede where the shoe flexes, they line up with the grooves on the outsole and arent even near where i ollie/kickflip. Really not as great as you guys made them seem, maybe mine were defective or something…
