DC Shoes is releasing a new colorway of their fan-favorite Lynx OG and an apparel collection designed by DC skateboarder Kevin Bilyeu. This limited Lynx is part of DC’s Reserve program, inspired by Philadelphia’s storied skate scene, which has always been central to DC’s brand story.
When DC first released the Lynx in 1998, the athletic, technical silhouette stood out from the crowd. With its skateable design and durable construction, the Lynx became one of the most revered skate shoes of all time. Even when it was out of production, the Lynx remained one of the most popular and sought-after shoes among skaters, collectors, and sneakerheads alike.
The enduring popularity of the Lynx — among other classics like the Kalis and Clocker 2 — inspired DC to launch its Reserve Program in 2018. Sold in limited runs online and at select retailers, DC Reserve collections celebrate and expand upon the brand’s skateboarding roots by offering premium footwear and apparel as part of exclusive collaborations, Heritage OG reissues, limited colorways, and rider capsules.
The Bilyeu Collection encapsulates all things good about the Reserve program, and this Lynx OG is built true to the original specs of 1998 with heritage-inspired colors. And since Kevin Bilyeu is a mainstay of the modern Philly skate scene, he added custom details that pay homage to the iconic “Muni” plaza, like the custom domino heel pulls.
To accompany the collection, Kevin filmed a full-length video part that drops on April 7th, 2023.
The Kevin Bilyeu Lynx OG Collection will be available at select skate shops worldwide and dcshoes.com on April 8th, 2023.
