We met up with DC Shoes to get a sneak peek at what’s coming to skateshops later this year. The main story here are the signature shoes from Evan Smith, Tiago Lemos, and Wes Kremer. Sk8mafia partnered with DC to create a capsule collection with the Kremer shoe as the central focus.

Evan Smith’s shoe is more of a lifestyle take on his mid-top silhouette. It has the Impact sole technology and the reinforced toe cap, but the upper area is a little thin promising for a quick blowout from serious skating. It still looks good as far as a chiller goes.

Tiago’s shoe comes after a great year for him in 2016. The dude shreds and is definitely deserving of his own shoe. Simple on the outside and packed with DC’s technology designed under the hood, we’re hoping to take this shoe out for a session soon to try it out.

The weather lately may have you thinking it’s pretty much summer already but there’s still several months before these drop. Keep an eye out for more to come from DC, until then check out their current offering over at their website.
