DC Shoes Rereleases The OG Lynx For 2018

The OG DC Lynx, back for 2018 – 3/25/18

There have been a lot of cries for reissues, especially with the ease of access to brands that social media brought on, but debatably the loudest and steadiest have been for the original DC Lynx.

Sported heavily by certain east coast legends during what many consider the “Golden Era”, the Lynx remains one of the most recognizable skate shoes ever made. Closely associated with Philly, it’s not surprising the Sabotage crew have been known to find and skate old pairs. A slimmed down reissue and a sequel both favoring a more modern silhouette were released a few years back, creating an even larger upheaval of general disapproval in favor of the classic construction.

Today, DC announced that the OG Lynx will be rereleased on March 25. As far as we know, the construction and materials are as close as possible to the original. 3 colorways were shown, all dating back to the Lynx’ original run.

We’ll keep you posted as we learn more. In the meantime, let’s all appreciate the fact that soon we’ll be able to see Wenning and Kalis skate these again.

    It’s pretty amazing that these are to be released following the year of Wenning’s comeback.

    You could probably write a dissertation on the many misteps of DC down the years but I felt they started to go wrong around the early 2000’s; no Kalis shoe was as good as the original, no Williams shoe looked half as good as his first, you had the rise of the super thin models which DC was just not very good at and then finally when Wenning was at his most popular they already stopped production the original Lynx!

    That said, I know of many people that loved the Lynx HE.

    I was hoping to see the navy/blk with white outsole colorway. Oh well, still glad to see these. Love seeing reissues from the era when I started skating.

    They got rid of the old ‘flag’ logo recently, and are doing what they were best known for; the chunkier stuff. There have been good shoes in between then and now, don’t get me wrong, like I don’t hate slim shoes at all and I do skate slim shoes now. I just think returning to the ‘OG flava’ will be good. Who knows, it could flop.

    I don’t care if people don’t like the ‘nostalgia’ kind of stuff, but for those who prefer bigger shoes will be glad. I missed the original age of the Lynx and only got to skate the 2s and HEs.
