The Jimmy Sweatpants x DC Shoes Kalis 1 is Packed with OG DNA Release: 26 October 2019
Blessed with a searing white, blue and orange scheme, the Jimmy Sweatpant (JSP) x DC Shoes Kalis is inspired by the OG graphics from DC and Droors’ formative years. A silhouette close to Jimmy’s heart, the Kalis 1 represents the Philadelphia skateboarding community ‘past, present and future’.
The OG styling is all there: leather and suede upper, high-abrasion toe cap, the throwback mesh panels and, of course, the hefty padded collar and tongue. Meanwhile, a heel airbag comes infused into the lightweight sole unit for extra shock absorption.
‘Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone that contributed toward this project in any way, shape or form, as well all the positivity in response to every aspect of it. It all comes from heart,’ said Jimmy via IG.

When I think of @dcshoes its attached to a feeling of excitement for the energy that circulated around @15th_and_jfk when @joshkalis moved back to the city of Philadelphia. One of the most important moments I ever had on a board was with a pair of black @dc_skateboarding lynx on. The @joshkalis 1 is synonymous with all of that to me. The opportunity to create a cobranded @jsp pair is something well over 20 years in the making. Its original design represents homage to skateboard community in Philadelphia both past, present, and future. The @jsp make up represents never ever allowing anyone or anything to limit or box you in. As long as I’ve had the idea to go this route with it, I knew @remybanks in his neighborhood could tell this story. It’s is with the utmost honor, respect, and pride I present to y’all the @jsp & @dcshoes @joshkalis 1 collection, musically produced by Germantown’s own, @q3whocares. 🎥: @queensandmain 📍: @meanwhilebackinqueens
