The DC Hartferd shoes join DC's extensive collection of low-top sneakers. Incorporated on the mesh upper are leather, nubuck, and/or suede reinforcements on the toe cap and heel counter for added foot support while keeping the shoe flexible and non-restrictive. Lace-up closure is in place for a customizable fit.

Sizes available for the DC Hartferd sneakers range from US 6 to 14 in D Standard width in men’s sizing.

The DC Hartferd is a low-top skate-inspired sneaker for men that combines style and function into one. Perfect for summer, it has this laidback and sporty-casual flair caused mainly by its mesh upper, clean midsole design, and lace closure.

Signature DC brandings are minimal and can be seen on the tongue, lateral side, and heel part of the midsole. Because of its straightforward looks, the Hartferd sneakers are easy to wear and pair with different outfit combinations from day to night.

The Hartferd sneakers from DC are one of those that exhibit minimal aesthetics yet still turn out stylish and functional. Aside from DC's signature pill pattern tread, this low-top sneaker also features a combination of materials throughout the upper.

Though mainly made of mesh that makes it well-ventilated, lightweight, and breathable, this shoe incorporates leather, nubuck, and/or suede on the toe cap and heel counter as reinforcements for added support and stability. The midsole is clean-looking, too, but designed with a thicker and prominent portion towards the heel.

DC, otherwise known as DC Shoes, Inc., is one of the frontrunners in the skate shoe market alongside Vans, Etnies, New Balance, Nike, and Adidas. The American footwear brand was founded by business partners Ken Block and Damon Way in 1994.

Fast forward to today, DC remains a top player and continuously produces not just performance skate shoe models but also lifestyle-focused ones to cater to a broader market across the globe.

Today's lineup of DC skate-inspired sneakers includes the DC Hartferd. It is a low-top shoe designed with a mesh upper reinforced with leather, nubuck, and/or suede on the toe cap and heel counter. It also features a lace-up closure, heel loop tab, EVA midsole and outsole, and DC's trademarked pill pattern tread.

The DC Hartferd initially retailed for $60 a pair. Colorways released include Burgandy/Dawn, Black/White, White/Navy, and Black/Grey/White.

  • The DC Hartferd sneakers also feature a heel pull tab for added convenience and mesh linings.
  • The sole unit is made of EVA (Ethylene Vinyl Acetate) material.
