A part of skate culture will soon be revived with The Hundreds‘ latest collaboration with Osiris — the iconic D3 sneaker. As a popular silhouette that flourished in and out of skateboarding during the early 2000s, the D3 was known for its larger-than-life presence that was heightened via celebrity endorsement along with an elevated price point.
The shoe was characterized by a textured sole unit — made for kickflips — a beefy tongue and a signature large-eyelet lacing system. This time around, The Hundreds are bringing back the shoes as true to the original as possible, but with some added touches afforded by the collaboration. Seen from the image above, the collaborative D3 will receive a mostly-black upper, but its large-ring eyelets will be adorned by a textured tonal graphic print. Signifying the partnership is The Hundred’s mascot “Adam Bomb” placed at the heel. The entire shoe is finished off with a clean gum sole.
For those interested in picking up a pair of skate history between two OGs in the game, the Hundreds X Osiris D3 will be available in limited quantities at select stockists around the world, and online this coming June 20 at midnight EST.
