The DC Cure pair is available in men’s standard US sizes ranging from US sizes 6 to 18. With an upper created out of a combination of leather, nubuck, and suede, the material envelop the user’s foot. With these features, the DC Cure shoes fit comfortably.

Reinforcing these materials is a mesh lining integrated into the internal part of the boot. A traditional lacing system integrated into the central part of the shoe delivers a personalized fit.

With a classic-looking skateboarding silhouette, the DC Cure skate shoe may very well go with one’s usual skateboarding outfit. Whether one is feeling a low-key look with casual jeans and t-shirt combo or a look featuring more bold pieces (if one is feeling adventurous), the DC Cure skate shoes can adapt.

Having been made into several colorways, the style possibilities for the pair are numerous. Ranging from more neutral colorways featuring primarily black, white, and gray hues, to some with touches of bold elements like red, this allows people to mix and match pieces from their wardrobe.

Found in several areas of the DC men's Cure is a bold and welded DC official logo. The one placed at the top of the tongue area is particularly visible while a less conspicuous one is placed at the lateral side of the boot. Additionally, the lace guard found in the tongue area creates more stability whether one is going for an intense skateboarding sesh or just a leisurely romp in the streets.

A cupsole construction has been used in this model’s design. This setup, while generally more hard feeling with less of board feel, also promotes more foot and ankle support for the wearer.

Furthermore, a grippy rubber outsole is featured paired with an abrasion-resistant feature is incorporated into the men's DC Cure skate shoes. This combination affords the wearer durability, even lasting for several years.

Evidently, DC has expanded and has come a long way since their Droors Clothing days. Partnering with a slew of artists and athletes, the brand has since exploded into the scene and has effectively taken root into the mainstream culture. With their sneaker aspect getting established in 1993, the brand has since come up with some of the most revolutionary footwear designs. Perhaps the one that has singularly gripped the market during that era was the Lynx by the brand’s footwear designer Sung Choi. With more collaborations, the brand has come up with some of the most innovative footwear designs in the market. They still are growing today.

In more recent releases, however, the brand has not forgotten their roots either. Coming up with designs that pay homage to more classic silhouettes, the DC Cure shoes for men is definitely one of those designs.  

  • The DC Cure sneaker is available in several colorways including white, navy, grey, black, black/ red, blue/ white, grey/ green, blue/ white, and black/ grey.
