Many have noted the early 2000’s boom that’s taken over. Whether one person is solely responsible for it or if it comes as a means of throwing a wrench in the gears, I think we can all agree that it’s been fun to watch.
As fashion is an ever-changing mechanism, we find ourselves perplexed again with a new development. Just as the rest of the world was getting used to seeing the Kalis Lite with the motocross-inspired outsole, we saw a clip of Kalis skating his newly appointed shoe with a flat sole. The majority certainly won’t mind, especially because a flat sole is always generally favored, but I think its fair to say that if “it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”….or maybe not.
In the case that you think it’s broke, DC should alter this outsole by continuing to pay homage to their rich history. In hopes that they do, Love Park’s own Brian Panebianco took matters into own hands by doing just that. Using a Lynx 2 outsole from his own personal collection, Brian mended two much needed worlds together to make the shoe that most of us are patiently waiting for.
In his IG clip, Kalis appears to be skating his JK Lite with the newly debuted “New Jack” outsole. While the jury is still out on that particular model, we ponder: If the Kalis Lite gets a flat outsole, which would you favor? One of the past, like the Lynx 2? Or a more modernized one with updated technology?
