Known for its iconic & occasionally ironic shoe the D3, Osiris Shoes has produced skate shoes for countless years, for a range of different pro skateboarders & been the reference for a wave of fashion trends.
Osiris Shoes has created some of the best shoes for skateboarding over the last 20 years. The initial skate video release of ‘The Storm’ in 1999 (Brandon Turner & Peter Smolik) alongside the debut of the famous Osiris D3 skate shoe, arguably the most famous shoe skateboarding has seen, propelled them to the forefront of the skate footwear scene. From the year that Osiris Shoes came out in 1999, they have since released iterations of the shoe. The D3 Osiris 2001 being the latest shoe designed to be one of the world’s best skate shoes. The puffy tongue, outer sole, the chunky structure makes it virtually indestructible. If you were to build a bomb shelter the D3 should be your choice of protection…
Amongst other things, Osiris has other models built for skating & lifestyle shoes including the NYC 83 VLC DCN, Osiris Clone & Osiris Loot shoe. The D3 Shoe has taken a second stream of fame through being an inspiration for AWGE x Under Armour SRLo shoe collaboration designed by rapper A$AP Rocky.
