Osiris Shoes is a skate shoe company that was founded in 1996 by Tony Chen, Tony Magnusson, Brian Reid, Doug Weston and Laura Kim. They created the company when they saw a void in the skateboard industry for pro designed and endorsed footwear.
The Osiris skateboard video "The Storm" (1999) won the Transworld magazine's readers poll's for best video.
As of October 2014, the company sponsors team members in skateboarding, BMX, surf, and echelon.
Former professional skateboarder Dave Mayhew designed the "D3" model, a popular skate shoe. The second version of the shoe, the "D3 2001", became very popular and Osiris then released a smaller, lighter, less bulkier version called the "D3 NTX". The "D3 4.0" and a "D3 Snowboarding" boot followed, and both were based on the design of the D3 2001 model.
The D3 2001 is still in production to this day, although Dave Mayhew receives no royalties.
