The retro revival of the DC Shoes Kalis OG is rolling right along, as the California-based brand has linked up with Japan’s Monkey Time for two compelling takes on the classic skateboarding silhouette. Monkey Time is a sub-label of the renowned retail brand BEAUTY & YOUTH — and both are overseen by UNITED ARROWS — so their attention to detail is nothing short of impeccable, and they’ve hit all the key points on their dynamic duo of collaborative shoes. Arriving in both a crisp white and a stark black, each pair re-interprets the Kalis OG’s turn-of-the-century heritage and history in a unique way. The black pair boasts an ultra-supple premium leather upper for a luxury feel, while the white pair veers more towards the sporty end of the spectrum by combining tumbled leather and mesh with grey and black suede accents. Although they do provide a vivid yin and yang of styles, a semblance of similarity is provided by icy blue outsoles and extra sets of fluorescent-colored laces to bring out alternate flair. Each pair is also packaged in a hand-crafted box. The shoes have already skated into Monkey Time’s retail locations in Japan, but they’re available for a global release via DCshoes.com now, with a retail price of $180 per pair.
