The DC Heathrow is one of the brand’s highest-selling and successful low-top shoe that first dropped in 2016. Its athletic-inspired roots are evident in its casual silhouette fit for everyday use, with lightness and utmost comfort that can be attributed to the microsuede and mesh upper and the UNILITE sole.
