DC Review - Smith 2.0 and Pure Slim from Eastern Boarder on Vimeo.


The clip below is a couple of the new DC ams Matt Miller and Marquise Henry. Look at the size of the table in the last clip! That is no Cali. schoolyard knee high picnic table. Matt Miller also skates for Zoo York and should have a good part in their new video State of Mind.

Dave Begonis and Kevin Leslie were both given the chance recently to try out some DC Shoes. Above is some footage they got while testing out the shoes and some of their thoughts on how the shoes skated and how well they held up.

Both Kevin and Dave have been skating a lot of vulcanized shoes lately. The Smith 2.0 and Pure Slim feature a TPR wrap cup sole construction which is a cup sole with a side wrap with the look and flick feel of a vulcanized sole. They agreed the shoes were a little stiff out of the box but broke in quickly. Once broken in they found the shoes still grippy and slightly more supportive than a traditional Vulcanized shoe.

Dave got in a lot of skating and put the "Super Suede" to the test. The shoes held up well and after 10 or 11 solid days of skating the DC "pill grip" tread pattern wasn't even starting to wear down and some of the stitching on the toe was just starting wear through. Overall they seemed to think they were solid clean looking shoes that held up well.

We have the same Pure Slims that Dave tried out in stock at the store as well as the Pure and Pure XE in a couple color options.
