Diet Starts Monday and DC Shoes have teamed up for an appetizing take on the classic Kalis OG sneaker. Offering bright colors and delectable details aplenty, the reworked skate classic presents a bold look that merges the worlds of ’90s skateboarding and modern-day streetwear.
Once the must-have signature model of longtime DC Shoes team member Josh Kalis, the chunky Kalis OG has been enjoying a revival of sorts over the last year, thanks primarily to skate brands. Diet Starts Monday’s revision dresses the model’s mesh, leather and suede upper in a vibrant neon yellow hue, giving the heavyweight silhouette a gentle, light tone. DSM’s signature globe logo is embroidered on both sides of midfoot in black thread, while rubberized text branding runs both up and across the puffy tongue.
A spicy red garnish arrives on the top eyestay and heel, the latter of which also offers a co-branded Diet Starts Monday and DC logo, while yet another graphic is printed on the red insole. A sail midsole with a visible air bag offers both contrast and comfort, while the final course arrives via the outsole, which features a pill-and-skull print under its icy blue rubber.
The Diet Starts Monday x DC Shoes Kalis OG is available now at DC Shoes’ online store, and retails for $115 USD.
