This iteration is offered in men's sizing from 6 to 14 US in medium width. Women are suggested to purchase 1.5 sizes down their regular shoe size for a more comfortable fit. Meanwhile, this model is secured with a lace-up fastening system for an adjustable, lockdown fit. Padding on the ankle and tongue are used to provide better protection and comfort. Also, the 7mm Ortholite sockliner delivers freshness as it keeps the feet dry and avoids the formation of odor.
The high-top DC Evan Smith Hi Zero S showcases a fairly classic vibe with a slim profile that can be easily matched with any relaxed ensembles. The deconstructed Super Suede upper is presented in various colorways which give wearers ample options to choose from. This sneaker radiates a chill vibe that can be paired up with tattered jeans, loose denim, shorts, and even with rolled-up trousers.
Like all the other DC Evan Smith sneakers, the DC Evan Smith Hi Zero S displays a unique outsole pattern, which turned as the signature element of the DC Evan line. The inverted cone pattern of the vulcanized rubber outsole lowers the durometer which allows compression during landings. At the same time, this technology also keeps the shoe lightweight and maximizes board feel and flexibility.
Since the brand was founded in 1994, DC has been consistent in delivering footwear with eye-catching style and performance. From skateboarding, the brand grew extensively and started providing footwear for different kinds of extreme sports, such as surfing, snowboarding, motocross, and BMX. The brand has also developed several technologies to enhance its wearer's performances further.
Currently, DC is considered one of the respected brands in the extreme sports apparels and footwear. The brand was also the first ever label that collaborated with a professional skateboarder. One of their endorsers is the Florida-native pro skater Evan Smith, known for his unconventional technique in pulling off tricks on his board.
The DC Evan Smith line boasts its footwear that provides superior board feel and protection from the impact. This line highlights its revolutionary Impact-I technology on its vulcanized rubber gumsole that is suitable for hard landings.
