DC is involved in designing and producing the highest class footwear, specializing in skateboarding shoes, snowboarding boots, Active Terrain footwear, women’s and children’s casual footwear, along with matching clothing.
This American company has been into existence since 1993 with the efforts of Ken Block, a snowboarder, and is based in Vista, California. DC originally stood for “Droors City Footwear”, but since the sale of Doors (which is now defunct), DC no longer has ties to Doors and is simply DC Shoes.
The quality of the company’s products is matched by the integrity of their business practices and employment environment. DC takes pride in its cultivated associations with the media, suppliers, clients, customers, team riders, and employees. DC Shoes’ commitment to excellence deepens with the company’s continued expansion.
DC Shoes experienced a massive growth during the mid-1990s and remained one of skate boarding’s top brands. It has been able to successfully gain nationwide, mall-based distribution while keeping hard-core skateboarders loyal by offering exclusive designs through skate shops only.
