DC's latest campaign added two of the most talented skateboarders to their already impeccable roster. As exciting as this news is, we're even more hyped on the newest Josh Kalis pro model. The Centric S is a revision on the traditional skate shoe with some modern technology. It also has an added ingredient that has been missing from skateboarding for over a decade.
The air bag is back!
We couldn't be more hyped on the Centric but honestly there are already mix reviews on the shoe. After surveying the audience, some people love it and others can't wrap their minds around it but don't hate it. This may be because we, as consumers, have been brain-washed into accepting the same model for years now but change is good so we're going to embrace it.
The DC Centric S comes with even more than you'd expect. The shoe has DC's patented Super Suede throughout the toe, a foam padded tongue & collar, no-sew vent holes for breathability and a EVA midsole for comfort. All of these features are covering the top portion of the shoe. Under the hood of this model is the engineered low profile airbag. This feature is specifically designed to withstand pressure to prevent any possibility of popping and add to it's already great comfort level. The sole is made up of an abrasion resistant rubber (which is always promising) and a newly developed outsole designed to maximize grip, board feel & flexibility all in one. This new outsole may be the next favored outsole in their catalog because of it's unique design and for it's ability to offer the best aspects of any shoe all at once. We seriously can't wait to get these on our feet to show you how amazing their performance is.
When our Sneak Peek articles come around, we often feature more than one model from each brand (as you'll see in the days to come) but we're really aiming to get this Kalis shoe review so we're going to mainly concentrate and aim all of our attention to it. We're coming for ya Kalis!
In the next couple of days, we'll continue to post all of our Agenda Sneak Peek photos from brands like Lakai, Vans, the newly anticipated brand Praxis featuring Karl Watson and more.
Thank you to Agenda and everyone who makes the event possible every year.
We're in California till Tuesday so we'll be skating more than we'll be posting but you'll get these exclusives no matter what.
