DC Shoes

DC Shoes

DC Shoes was founded in 1994 by Ken Block and Damon Way in Carlsbad California. The brand name DC originally stood for “Droors Clothing” and quickly became the number one selling skateboard footwear brand thanks to iconic styles and original designs that broke the mould of skate shoe design during the 1990s. Since the beginning, they have also had one of the most incredible rosters of athletes representing them from legends such as skateboarders Danny Way, Colin McKay, Rob Dyrdek and Josh Kalis, and new blood that includes John Shanahan, Lucian Clarke, Jamhir Brown, Kevin Bilyeu, Ish Cepeda and Will Marshall.

Featured collections

DC Lynx shoes

The Lynx

The DC Lynx was one of the most iconic skate shoes from what is known as the "golden era" of skateboarding, the late '90s. This show was heavily featured in many influential videos at the time due to DC's sponsorship of key skateboarders of the time such as Brian Wenning, Stevie Williams, Danny Way, Rob Dyrdek, AVE, Jason Dill and Colin McKay. The Lynx has a unique upper design that lends itself to almost unlimited colour options which has kept the shoe relevant for over 20 years.

DC Kalis shoes

The Josh Kalis collection

If you think of a skateboarding that truly represents what DC is about then you cannot get anyone more synonymous with the brand than Josh Kalis. A street skateboarding legend in his own right, Josh Kalis has ridden for DC for over two decades and has had a signature shoe for most of that time. This is a testament to Josh's longevity as a professional skateboarder. He is also heavily involved in the design process which is likely the reason that his shoes continue to resonate with DC fans around the world.

DC Manteca shoes

The Manteca

The DC Manteca is inspired by the basketball shoes of the '80s reimagined with DC's unique style. Originally released in the early '00s, the Manteca has recently been retooled and released on an updated last that looks better than ever. With a plethora of colour options, this is one of DC's best-selling styles and continues to reinvent itself with new colour and fabric combinations that keep the Manteca fresh and interesting. It also comes in a higher spec version called the "Manteca S" that features DC's patented "Super Suede" technology for increased durability.

DC clothing

DC clothing

It is a little-known fact that DC Shoes started life as a clothing project called 8Ball Clothing. This did not find success and soon evolved into Droors Clothing which became a pivotal brand during the early '90s. However, in 1994 Damon Way and Ken Block decided that they wanted to make shoes and Droors Clothing Shoes or "DC Shoes", as it quickly became, was born. To this day, DC respects its roots by continuing to make a large range of clothing with t-shirts, hoodies, jackets, pants, denim and hats being some of the most popular items.

DC WNT boots

DC WNT boots and winterised shoes

DC has always had a strong connection with snowboarding and the outdoors. This is effortlessly brought together with their streetwear influence in the WNT collection of winter boots and weather-treated skate shoes. This product features a mix of styles from a “waterproofed” Pure High to a fully fledged winter boot like the Navigator. All products feature extras like lugged or grippier soles and extra insulation for warmth. Gone are the days of having to wear some kooky “old man” brand if you want to look good in bad weather. DC can be credited with defining this entire sub-category that has since been emulated by other skate footwear companies.

DC Pure shoes

The Pure and Pure High

The DC Pure is one of the brand's most popular styles and is available in both a low and a high-top. What is interesting about the Pure is that its popularity is not exclusive to one or the other. Both low and high-top options are super popular in their own right and have developed quite a large and loyal following over the years. The Pure is what most would consider a "typical skate shoe" silhouette, maybe that is why it does so well, because it makes no secret about what it is. The DC Pure is the Everyman's skate shoe.

The Versatile

When designing the Versatile, DC asked a simple question: "Is it possible to create a good-looking shoe, that skates well and has all the bells and whistles?". Well, it seems the answer to that is... yes absolutely! The DC Versatile has it all, a 180-degree wrap-around airbag, reinforced heel cup, 400nbs rubber outsole, added padding and specialised panelling for wear protection. It is hard to think of a skate shoe that has more technology and is as good looking as this for the price.

The Court Graffik

Drawing inspiration from the popular blucher-toe tennis shoes of the '80s, the DC Court Graffik takes it a step further by adding extra padding for a more "puffy" look. This is styled with the addition of fat laces inspired by '80s and '90s breakdance culture and is made their own with the placement of the DC "Star Logo" on the heel quarter. Many have tried this style, but few have the same stature or market staying power. Over the years the Court Graffik has also been furnished with a long list of collab graphics including Star Wars, Slayer, Black Sabbath and Dead Pool, which work so well with the panel design of this shoe.
