DC Shoes is an American company that focuses on creating footwear for active sports including skateboarding and snowboarding. The brand also creates other apparel including bags, accessories, hats, shirts, posters and others. Did you know that DC stands for Droors Clothing? Now it is simply known as DC Shoes Inc. The brand was acquired by Quicksilver and is now a long-term staple in the skate and snowboarding shoe industry.
DC Men's Skateboarding Shoes
DC has a large range of shoes created for skateboarding, with the iconic DC logo painted on the side. Skateboarding shoes are specifically designed to protect users' feet from common skateboarding issues. They are created with reinforced interior toe caps to protect the toes during skateboard trips. They also have padded areas in the heels and soles, with high quality materials of either leather or suede.
Leather is a high-quality material that is resistant to dry abrasion, is quite waterproof, and can last a long time. Apart from being cleaned with warm water and soap, leather requires minimal care to stay in good condition for many years. Suede is another durable fabric frequently used in DC shoes, since it is a soft but tough fabric that is pliable and lasts a long time. It can get quite dirty, but with a warm water wash it can always be cleaned to its former glory. Some of the shoes are made from textiles, which are the vegan-friendly option, and while they're more prone to scuffing, they'll still withstand significant wear and tear.
DC Men's Shoes
DC's shoes are not limited to skateboarding shoes, but also have many styles for lifestyle, sneakers, essentials, boots, high tops, slides, and thongs for any sporty individual. Whether you are looking for shoes for daily wear or for an occasion, DC will have the option right for you. There are running shoes made from combinations of micro-suede, or waxed canvas with a spandex lining for a secure and comfortable fit. DC also has the iconic Trase Low shoes which feature a low profile silhouette, clean upper design, and a logo on the heel counter with branding on the side.
DC Slides for Men and Women
The iconic DC logo has made an appearance on slides, which are a great option for travel, wearing into the showers, and for lounging comfortably around your home. DC has also created thongs which are perfect to take to the beach or for your daily activities. They come in a variety of styles and colours, ranging from simple black or white to brightly coloured. These backless and open-toed shoes are basically an open-toed mule. Slides can be heeled, flat, or somewhere in the middle. The straps can be anywhere from ankle to toe, and while they typically have one thick strap, they can also have a double strap to keep the shoe on the foot. The name comes from being easy to slide in and out of, and the style has made a significant comeback in pop culture, despite originally being born back during the times of Ancient Rome.
DC Shoes for Women
For skateboarding, DC has a wide range of shoe styles available. The women's shoes typically have a narrower design to fit a ladies foot better, along with a diverse selection of colours and styles. eBay has both brand new and pre-loved shoes available for purchase, ranging in prices depending on the style and original release year. There are some classic Chelsea black skate shoes available, or unique uni-lite trainers that have a vintage feel. The materials used for DC shoes include suede and leather, which are high quality and durable fabrics.
DC Bags and Briefcases
DC has also created a range of bags to be paired with any outfit or situation. Are you looking for a waist bag to stash your documents or wallet in? Then why not try one of the classic style fanny packs. Or, you can opt for a backpack which can be used for school, travel, or hiking. There are also large 28L backpacks made from durable outdoor material, with large weatherproof zips and buckles that create a statement piece for practicality and durability. DC has also created some travel and adventure-proof backpacks, such as the Ruckstone packs which have heavy duty closures that keep their contents safe from weather. There are also large camping or gym bags available, that are ideal for travel or for transporting your gym equipment.
DC has also grown to include a range of snowboards and snow gear for the winter season. The DC name has always been synonymous with quality, and DC snowboards are no stranger to this. The boards come in a range of brightly colourful designs in a range of cuts and camber patterns. This means that no matter your level of snowboarding experience, you will find a DC model to fit your needs. For beginners, you'll want to find a snowboard that feels sturdy, easy to turn, and has an edge that doesn't catch too easily. If you plan to ride fast on groomed runs, you should consider a cambered board. For soft snow riding, a flat, rocker, or flat/rocker style is better suited. The width of a snowboard also contributes to the ease of riding, so make sure to pick one that is not thinner than the width of your snowboard boots.
DC Snowboard boots
DC has created high quality snowboarding boots for many years, with plenty of boarders exclusively depending on the brand for their needs. They have boots with laces that allow for a precise fit to your leg size, or the ever-increasingly popular coiler to lace up the boots in record time. There are many types of snowboard boots, with the most popular being the All-Mountain, as it is ideal for any type of riding and provides a secure fit, high performance, and a stiff flex. They come in a range of colours including blue, white, khaki, black, and maroon to match the rest of your snowboarding outfit.
