In honor of his first pro model shoe for DC Shoes, John Shanahan delivers 7 minutes of technical destruction. From the Streets, For the Streets.
The Shanahan Pro pays homage to DC’s rich skate archive with its classic, low-cut design, iconic branding, and high-impact product detailing found on many of our most revered heritage pro models. The Shanahan Pro includes a TPR heel logo, the stabilizer-injected TPU detachable strap, and the EVA heel cradle.
The shoe also features modern fabrication upgrades, including premium materials and innovative technology. The upper is constructed from suede and leather, providing superior durability. The impact-resistant sole ensures that the shoe can withstand even the toughest skate sessions while maintaining a superior board feel – the Shanahan Pro is the perfect blend of style and performance, carefully curated by Shanahan himself.
“I took most of my inspiration directly from DC Shoes. My goal was to create a shoe that fits the late 90s/early 2000s DC aesthetic but was also entirely new. I studied some of my favorite DC models, such as the Howard 2, the LYNX, the Legacy, and a few others. I wanted to try to incorporate some of my favorite features from those models while adding my own flair to them. The main focus was style and performance. I really wanted to make something that would stand the test of time and still be wearable/skateable in 20+ years,” Shanahan shares.
