The sleeker, more streamlined Lynx sports the nostalgic grey and orange colorway, but has been updated with the newest technology. It has a Super Suede TPU backed upper, a sandwich mesh tongue and vent holes for breathability, an internal mesh sleeve for the most comfortable fit, and an abrasion resistant rubber outsole. Different colorway combinations will be released every season for the rest of 2014. For more information, please visit www.dcshoes.com/lynxs.

"For years people have been asking us to re-release the Lynx shoe and this modern version perfectly symbolizes our long history and forward commitment to progression, said Jeff Taylor, Senior Vice President, Global Brand and Marketing for DC Shoes.  "With 2014 being DC's 20th anniversary, there was no better time than now to bring the Lynx back."
