My Rating

The DC Evan Smith Hi V S is a skate shoe exclusively offered in men’s sizes that range from US 6 to 14. It is constructed in a high-top fashion that gives added ankle support during skateboarding. The shoe utilizes a triple Velcro strap closure for a customizable and lockdown fit.

If you need a stylish skate shoe with added ankle support, then the DC Evan Smith Hi V S could be worth trying. It displays a classic skate style with its simple design and plain upper. The shoe looks bulky due to the extended toecap and padded collar, while the Velcro strap closure provides a unique flair to the overall skate aesthetic.

With its neutral color scheme and simple design, this sneaker offers versatility and could easily be paired with a multitude of casual outfits. Shoe users could dress this pair up in jeans, shorts, chinos or joggers. To top things off, wearers could select from a button-down shirt, t-shirt, or a pullover for endless effortlessly cool ensembles.

The DC Evan Smith Hi V S has plenty of similarities with its predecessor, from its high-top construction to its Super Suede upper, extended toecap, and padded collar. However, this sneaker's charm lies in its unique Velcro closure system, as it adds a stylish flair to the Evan Smith's already trendy lineage.

This sneaker also retains its Impact-I equipped sole, which combines excellent board feel and efficient impact protection. Evan Smith first used this technology in his first every DC signature skate shoe.

DC Shoes is known today as a veteran brand that laid a lot of the groundwork in the world of skateboarding footwear. Founded in 1994 by Ken Block and Damon Way, the company has grown from just manufacturing shoes to also producing apparel and accessories to cater to the extreme sports enthusiast's demands.

DC has maintained its reputation and stronghold in the skate community due to its effective strategies such as getting actively involved in sponsoring events and establishing a Skate Team that consists of skilled professional skateboarders. Some of these athletes get to design their own signature shoe models, hence providing skateboarders with footwear that are equipped with appropriate features for efficient skate performance.

One of the pro skateboarders that have his signature shoes is Evan Smith. He joined the DC Skate Team in 2011 but didn't get his own sneaker model until 2016. His first signature shoe is called the DC Evan Smith S, and the base features that Smith wanted in the sneaker are comfort, durability, simplicity, and board feel.

Eventually Smith's first signature shoe birthed several more DC Evan Smith shoes, and one of them is called the DC Evan Smith Hi V S. This shoe is a predecessor of the DC Evan Smith Hi S. It retained its older sibling's high-top silhouette, Impact-I sole technology, and Super Suede upper construction but replaces its lace-up system with triple hook and loop Velcro system.

  • It is a part of the brand’s Evan Smith collection.
  • It is available in Medium width.
  • A heel pull-tab is provided as an aid in easier on and off.
  • Its collar is padded for added comfort and cushioning.
  • Ventilation holes are located in the medial side of the shoe for enhanced breathability.
