The DC Heathrow SE is available for men and women, although some prints and shades are limited only to either the men’s or the women’s. Buyers who would like to purchase a model designed for the opposite gender should follow this general rule: Men must go up one size and a half from their usual while women need to go down about the same. 

The shoe is designed to be easily slipped on or off without the use of laces although it comes with a pair. The overlay design on the sneaker gives the wearer enhanced lateral support.

The DC Heathrow SE is available in a wide variety of colors and prints to choose from, from subdued tonal shades to bright metallics and prints.  There is something for everyone and definitely something that will match the clothes in your wardrobe. The colorful prints and vibrant hues will liven up any outfit and will surely add a bit of pizazz to your look. Wear the shoe with jeans, short, or joggers.

The DC Heathrow SE is specifically made to support your everyday activity by providing you with comfortable wear. The OrthoLite footbed cushions the foot well to get you through long hours of work or play. The UniLite midsole enhances the wearer’s comfort while providing lightweight support, and the internal toe provides reinforcement and improved durability.

The Heathrow model from DC Shoes came out in the year 2015. It’s the first model from the Heathrow collection in which shoes are specifically engineered for the lifestyle user yet engineered to give a high performance during each day-to-day activity.

The Heathrow had one outstanding feature. It had a UniLite outsole, which is designed to be super light and flexible to provide superior impact protection and long-lasting cushioning. And because of its high-grade outsole, the shoe uses less rubber on its bottom to produce a much lighter shoe overall—one that does not compromise on performance.

The DC Heathrow SE is a more premium iteration of the Heathrow. The Heathrow SE contains many of the elements of the Heathrow, but it is upgraded with an OrthoLite footbed for an even more cushioned feel.

  • The DC Heathrow SE features a full cleatie construction for the ideal fit, rubber outsole pods, and a suede upper.
  • The material of the upper varies depending on the colorway.
  • The Heathrow SE weighs around 283.5 grams per shoe.
