Josh Kalis 7th signature model the JK7

After being on DC since 1999, Josh Kalis has seen a thing or two. Especially in regards to signature skate shoe design and development.

The parties, the tours, the filming, the demos, the signings and the fans are one thing, but when a skater gets into designing their own signature shoe they've opened up a whole new can of worms. And Kalis is used to those worms, as Holiday 2007 marks the seventh signature shoe in his series of technical, performance skate shoes. Here, he fills us in on the process, the technology, and the reactions as he looks back on his extensive (and always popular) list of pro models. Plus, what we can expect from his latest, the JK7.
