My goal was to create a shoe that fits the late 90s/early 2000s DC aesthetic but was also entirely new. I studied some of my favorite DC models, such as the Howard 2, the LYNX, the Legacy, and a few others. I wanted to try to incorporate some of my favorite features from those models while adding my own flair to them. The main focus was style and performance. I really wanted to make something that would stand the test of time and still be wearable/skateable in 20+ years.
