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.
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’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?
