      Very good brand!

      Alot of people I know where DC's. Including me! I have 'DC Chelsea shoes' which if funny because my name is Chelsea. I think the prices of dc's are really reasonable. Mine were £55. But I kno you can get there fo around £30 on ebay. They are sooooo comfy and really stylish. Not like any other shoes I've owned. I really recommend them to any skaters or even just someone who likes a bit of STYLE!! My boyfriend also has DC's. There great for him because of the style he buys, he has bunions (or however you spell it) so he needs quite wide shoes. Normally he would hav to buy size UK 14's just for a bit of comfort, but with DC's he buys a size UK 12. And he wont buy any other type because there so comfy. DC's dont just do shoes though, they do bags, belts, t shirts, jeans, coats, huddys and everything. I think its a reall stylish choice. And very reasonable prices! And they do all ages and women and men. They do a youth section aswel.

      good looking and pratical shows

      The last few years i have been addicted to DC shoes. The shoes are made to an excellent standard. I have never had to throw a pair away. I have had one particular pair for over 2 years, walking miles every week through rain, mud and snow. They are good shoes to play sport in, run or walk long distances etc.
      The shoes are unbelievably comefortable and i have no problem with wearing them for hours on end. They support your feet well, assuming you get the correct sized shoe.
      The shoes look excellent, they are hundreds of different designs to choose from, ranging from simple black with white DC written on te side, to shoes that are covered in graffiti.
      The shoes could be described as being "skate" shoes as people who are into skatebording etc tend to war them. I am not really into that style but i feel they can go with most clothes. I have a dark pair that i even wear on nighs out.
      The only down side is the price. I always wait for the sales to buy mine (DC's are often in sales and new designs are constantly coming out) and dont tend to spend more that £40 a pair.

      Advantages

      One of the best brands I have ever bought from

      In last few years I've gone through a sort of evolution in footwear. First I started out with Converse, then Vans, before finally stopping on DC trainers. Although the other two brands suited me just fine, I think DC's are certainly my shoe of choice.

      DC's, typically known as a 'skater' shoe, strike me as one of the most comfortable and long-lasting brands of trainer. For example, I've had one pair for nearly three years and except for looking a little stylishly battered they are still in fine working condition. No leaks, no splits, no nothing. To be honest the only thing I've ever had to replace on them was the laces. Considering the pounding I give them, they have lasted extremely well. Unfortunately mine are white, which is not the most forgiving of colours, so they can get incredibly dirty, but a little water and tissue paper will sort that out in no time.

      DC's are also incredibly comfortable, the inside being coated with a thick layer of padding that somehow manages to grip your foot securely without being uncomfortably tight. The sole has an incredible grip, which is especially useful for me being located in the Welsh valley's, where ice and rain is pretty much our daily forecast.

      DC's come in a range of styles and colours, some of which have some pretty funky designs on them. Mine have a black and white radio and skull motif on them, but I've seen other much more outlandish designs. Of course, with the average price tag of £59.99, at least in my area, they are not particularly cheap, but considering the mileage you get out of them they are well worth the investment. I'll have to get another pair sometime...

        The shoe for every occassion!

        I have several pairs of skate shoes, had a couple of Vans and a couple of DC's, and I think the DC's are my favourite. They are by far the most comfortable shoes I've put on, and they just last and last! I used to wear my oldest pair every day for a long time, and they are finally getting to the end of their life. Not that the leather has broken, that's all in perfect working order, but the sole has became flat so there is no grip on anything anymore. I'm not the most sure footed of people so this isn't ideal for me. A friend of mine has had his even longer, and his are still holding out. Perhaps it's because he has the gum coloured sole, but mine has the black.

        Anyway to cut a long story short, they look cool (in my opinion...) they're comfortable, you can get into no trainers allowed clubs :O at least with my black ones that is, and they just last, the shoe for every occasion!

        Great

        D C Shoes are a well know skate brand of shoe, which have a wide range of different style of men and womens trainer / skate shoes.

        I have recently brough yet another pair of ladies DC skate shoes- and as i expected they are so comfortable and look super styley, as they always do.

        DC have such a huge range of different colours and patterns on their shoes, im sure if you like skate style shoes, you will definately find a shoe you like in teh DC Range.

        I have to say that DC always seems pretty reasonable in price also. The pair i have recently got weat £39.99 and worth every penny- What i love about my new DC is that they are a lovely rich purple colour, but have an almost chinesse silk design in them , within this design there is sparkly gold thread, which makes them a little bit more girly and sparkly! They did however come with purple lases and i am keen to change these to white to make them a bit more pingy!

        The sole on DC's seem to be very grippy and i can only imaging this must be perfect for a skater ( not being one my self)

        huge range and every pair i have owned have always lasted such a long time!

        9/10

        DC shoes are a very fashionable make of shoe, along side their extensive range of apparell and accesories.

        there are many different styles and designs on the market to suit many types of people/stereotypes, whether emo, chav, grunger, or geek, DC will definately have your style.

        Styles range from casual wear, to everyday trainers, there is a shoe for every one and every style.

        The price tag of an average of £60 a pair may seem high, but for what you are buying it is well worth it in my opinion. the comfort, fit, and design is next to none, with some of the designs looking more of a work of art than just a typical everyday shoe design.

        If you can afford £60 for a pair of shoes, then this is definately the range of shoe to choose. if not then go for something a bit cheaper and save up for them!

        shoes that are good looking..

        I have always been a fan of shoes provided for skateboarders etc and have been a loyal wearer of vans for about 8 years now. I have been interested in other makes but have always been a bit cautious in a way as I was so used to one thing.

        However, I recently bought a pair of DC shoes from schuh in my local city and was really impressed.
        My particular pair were black with Pink stars covering where the 'DC' logo was. They are eyecatching and very attractive. Of course, I dont actually use them for skateboarding but mainly for comfort and because they suit my style! They had a decent back to the shoe and kept my ankle in place as I have problems with them as a rule but this made them feel very comfortable. The overall feel of the shoe when it wason was comfortable and bouncy, thought this didnt last forever after I had worn them in, yet they were still comfortable.

        DC shoes come in a variety of different colours and styles available for both men and women! They also have a clothing range which I would recommend for you to check out!

        I do however think that they are a little expensive, but then arent all shoes these days? Mine cost £49.99 but then I do love them!

        nice shoe, shame about the foot

        For those that don’t know, DC’s shoes are the extreme sports world must have for fashion. I have had DC shoes in the past when I was at college. I skated for about 3 years. My first pair of skate shoes was Vans; these just broke on me, as the material used is not really for skating. I decided I would fork out the money and pay for a pair of shoes that will last awhile, look good and can use for both skating and general use. I bought my DC's and by far they are a good shoe and still are. My brother bought a pair of DC snowboarding boots. Let me say this again they still look good.

        DC shoes are product tested. So they get real skaters, who know tricks inside out, to test the shoes. This way they can get weakness and ways to improve them. Believe or not but skate shoes are quite technical. The makers understand how cushioning your feet are important and that there should be a shock absorber of some sort, so that when you land, you don’t hurt yourself. There’s a lot of effort to produce a shoe. Most of the time DC's in house skate team will say, they want a shoe that does this, and this and this. Then they produce it, because they know that it’s to their specification and that’s how they ride. This way they know others will skate the same.

        My DC’s were black, with white bits in. A plastic cover in the front of the shoe. (Like a toe cap. When you skate and do your tricks you usually use the front part of your foot and it scraps against the grip of the board. With out this plastic cover then they shoes will get wreck. It doesn’t make the shoes look tacky, but gives it a better appearance). At the time I think I paid £60 as they were on sale. Normally they about £80. The shoes are very comfortable, and every effort is made so that you feet don’t feel squashed in the shoe and that when you walk, you don’t feel the impact of your foot hitting the ground.

        Overall the shoes are very nice, but some can be very price, especially if you are buying a signature model. They more suited for a skater or some one who dresses like one. They are more associated with extreme sports.

          Shoes, trainers, sneekers whatever you call them. Everyone needs a pair, and considering your feet are used more often than not there’s no reason why you shouldn’t adorn them with some nifty bits of kit to keep them from aching, hurting, etc. Everyone is different as to what is best for their feet but personally I find skate shoes are by far the most comfortable. Don’t get me wrong though, I don’t actually skate! ------------ DC Shoes ------------ To most people who haven’t dabbled in extreme sports DC Shoes are unheard of. For those of you who have however will know that they are a big company. So for the sake of those who haven’t come across these shoes before, DC Shoe Co are an American company who primarily produce skate style shoes. However they produce various bits of apparel and even ski/snow gear. They sponsor various athletes, many of which are big names in the extreme sport world. ----------- The shoe ----------- This particular model is called the Analog. It is mainly made from suede with rubbery toe tips and sides primarily for extra control when skating but it is dead handy when you get scuff marks on them. All you need to do is get a damp cloth and wipe it off, simple. As with all shoes, comfort is a must. Anyone who buys trainers, shoes etc. just for the look is a fool. When I first got these I was kinda worried they wouldn’t be as comfy and my trusty Airwalks but after a prolonged wearing in period I can say they live up to skate shoes reputation of being excellent for walking/skating miles in. A good feature about these shoes is that the ankle support is quite taught, again this is for skating purposes but is also advantageous for everyday use. When on a trip to Chester, in typical British fashion it decided to pour down, and by pour I mean mini monsoon. There’s me and my nice new trainers – with suede might I a
          dd. As a nice surprise it didn’t effect it one bit, and as a bonus it kept my feet bone dry which you don’t often find in many shoes when it rains hard. One thing I must warn people about, I wear jeans quite a bit and only after a few wears I found that the lighter colours were picking up bits of blue from the said jeans. Its a minor niggle because my trousers cover it up anyway but could be an important one depending on what you’d normally wear. ---------------------------------- How much? And where from? ---------------------------------- Most sport shops nowadays are starting to sell skate shoes but usually its a limited range. Dedicated skate/surf shops are bound to have a pair of DC shoes but I got mine from the ever reliable Extremepie website, www.extremepie.com If you are sure of your shoe size its worth going on the net to be free of hassle and maybe a discount. This particular pair cost me £60 -------- Rating -------- Looks 5/5 (but then that is just my opinion of course!) Durability 4/5 (only reason it didn’t get 5 was the jean issue) Comfortability 4/5 (will probably get better with time)
