Last Saturday the DC Lynx was released nationwide. We were one of less than 40 shops in the U.S. to get this shoe and less than 500 pairs were made. People came from near and far to get their hands on this iconic piece of skateboarding history. The Lynx was first released in 1998 and was made famous by east coast legends like Brian Wenning and Josh Kalis. Thank-You to all who rolled through the shop!
DC should have called this the "Damage" colorway. 
The Lynx are big enough to hide behind!
 This guy made the trek to Duluth to pick up a pair for his friend. That's what I call a great friend!  
Missed out this time around? Don't worry because we will be getting another round of them next month. Stay tuned for more details.
