Osiris ● Slappy VLC

Can’t we focus on sunny weather, please? I was frozen head to toe last days so this only makes me want Spring arrival even more. Basically I need good weather if I want to wear smashing styles like this Osiris shoe, I can’t wear these in the snow.

Called Slappy VLC this low top is the skate shoe for the good times, for the “session after the session” when you really aren’t trying anything hard but you just want to chill with a good vibe after the accomplishments of the day.

Osiris isn’t new to floral motifs on lifestyle shoes. It was 2014 when we first saw the Convert, a lifestyle shoe based on a flower pattern. That was made of neoprene while this one in Gaia D hands is ballistic nylon. I see this material more and more and I couldn’t be happier: it’s easy to come up with sublimated prints on it and it’s a refreshing change from the usual canvas.

Slightly padded on the collar area, this is a lightweight structure that lays on a vulcanized construction. With its EVA midsole that will take care of the impacts you can count on the board feeling that will make you able to pass from a basic backside sloppy to try combos on double sided curbs like board slide to feeble. This is also possible because of the herringbone tread that is available on most shoes in the range this brand.

The brand that belongs to Nitro Distribution roster since day one, after creating skate shoes for decades, is now shifting its focus on lifestyle shoes a bit more and this is a clear example. Hip hop fans will love more its high tops like the Clone white that we saw here not long ago.

Keep shopping for Osiris in the best Italian skateshops if you think outside the box (and that quality/price rate doesn’t hurt)…
