I am not an avid skateboarder nor am i a stunt bike enthusiast but my son is!! I Just happen to like DC shoes with my slouched jeans and a top. However i felt compelled to write a review for what i think are a great Pair of shoes.
These are designed like most DC shoes are as a predominately Skater shoe but the ever-growing popularity of these shoes means everyone is wearing them. Stylish and contemporary, i bought mine from Sports Direct and paid £39.99 for them. When they arrived, i was pleased to say that they looked so much better than the picture. I had opted for the Black Battleship ones.
They are a very Thick feeling, heavy duty Black suede. As the usual style of DC's they have the Letters stitched over the outer back of the shoe and these particular ones have mini NC symbols inside the letter. I love this design and even though they are "mens" , i personally loved them. The problem was so did my son!!!
Slipping these on really does feel great, almost a little springy and they also seem to be reinforced under the ankle bone. The laces are easy to have slouched out a little (my preferred style) or if you want them done up you can do. The sole is substantial with a bright red colour and it is supposed to be great for traction with a "sticky" effect which means no-slipping. I only managed to get a couple of days wear out of this particular shoe as my son soon stole them.
However he has now got three pairs of them in different styles(grey and white(armor) and black and red) and i can give you some info on the whole skateboarding feel. These apparently are an extension of the massively popular Court Graffik DC which my son previously had and the biggest difference, is in the Vulcanised sole and a more indestructible heavy duty upper material. Basically Vulcanised means that you get more sole flexibility and feel so when on your bike or skateboard it makes for an unparalleled ride.
My son firmly Stands by this and he skates everyday for hours. He says that he can"feel" the board under him and the shoes actually add to his experience. On top of that the sole is a pill pattern trademark and offers superb traction. From my personal point of view i have never fallen over these but once again my son says that with the"sticky" sole he has superb traction, they last forever and are not affected by his deck tape. They take a lot of stick and to be honest seem just about indestructible.
These shoes hit all the right notes, regardless of whether you are a hardened skater like my son or if you just want a comfy shoe to go with your jeans. I would Highly recommend these and for the price i think it is money well spent. With a great range of styles your going to be spoiled for choice.
