Fit & Sizing

The DC Danni TX is available in women’s sizes ranging from 5 to 11 with half sizes offered as well. The shoes have a full lace closure which can be tightened or loosened depending on the width of the wearer’s feet.

The DC Danni TX are sporty shoes that would not look out of place in any casual setting. Match your sneakers with slim jeans and a simple shirt in a contrasting color to make your kicks pop. Or, kick your outfit up a notch by pairing your shoes with cropped pants, a crisp blouse, and a leather jacket.

The DC Danni TX shoes feature the famed DC Pill” pattern outsoles that stick to a variety of surfaces, preventing slides and spills whether you’re using the footwear casually or riding your skateboard. The Danni TX also has a thinner and more flexible build which gives users more control while providing them with an excellent board feel to do all kinds of technical tricks.

1994 was the year Ken Block and Damon Way founded DC Shoes, Inc. in Carlsbad, California. The two were community college friends who hit it off. Ken was an experienced snowboarder while Damon skated. Ken then began creating a line of T-shirts that were screen-printed—this would later become the Eightball brand—while Damon looked for stores that would sell the shirts. Damon’s brother, Danny, was a pro skateboarder and he helped endorse the line.

Eightball’s unique designs proved successful with skate shops and paved the way for the creation of DC Shoes in 1994. One version has it that the DC was named after Droors Clothing which Way and Block also founded while another has it the DC stands for the initials of two members of their pro skateboarding team (D for Danny Way and C for Colin Mckay).

While DC Shoes is renowned for producing some of the best skate shoes in the U.S., they have also branched out to manufacturing lifestyle sneakers and cleats. One of their casual sneakers is the DC Danni TX, which also belongs to its  DC low-top line-up. Although considered a lifestyle footwear, the silhouette does a pretty good job when used for skating. The footwear incorporates much of skating shoe elements such as durable fabrics uppers that can endure extreme moves and grippy rubber outsoles that can prevent you from falling off the board.

  • The DC Danni TX was released in 2012. The sneakers feature canvas uppers, vent holes, rubber heel bumpers and toe caps, and grippy DC trademarked Pill-patterned outsoles.
  • The footwear weighs about 340 grams per shoe.
