Worn by club kids, hip hoppers, rock stars and fashion models--not just the hard-core skateboarders they were crafted for--DC Shoes Inc.'s line of technical skateboarding footwear incorporates comfort, distinction and innovative design. Skaters can rip down ramps and handrails without a major shoe-thrashing, thanks to protective lace loops and abrasion-resistant toe-caps.
