Osiris D3[edit]

Brian Reid Co. founder of the OSIRIS designed the D3 and D3 2001 with his business partner TONY MAGNUSSON. Brian and Dave Mayhew went shopping after Dave missed a meeting and wanted to endorse a shoe called the GURU. They bought a few shoes some athletic and one hiking boot. This is where the famous large looks were inspired by. Former professional skateboarder Dave Mayhew endorsed the "D3" model, a popular skate shoe.[1] 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.
