Good to know

The DC Infinite S skate shoe is available in men’s sizing that ranges from US 6 to 14, with half sizes up to 12.5, in D Standard width. It fits generally true to size. It has a four-eyelet lace-up closure for a secure and lockdown fit. 

This shoe has a low-top profile, which is lighter than skate shoes with high-top or mid-top designs. It also offers more ankle mobility without sacrificing support and protection. The collar and tongue are both foam-padded. The Ortholite insoles are removable.  

While the Infinite S flaunts a DC-signature look, it somehow manages to create its own identity separate from the DC classic models like the DC Legacy or the DC Kalis. 

The upper of the DC Infinite S is almost entirely made out of Super Suede that exudes a clean-looking and classic skate shoe appeal. The tongue and collar are both made of mesh material, which perfectly complements the athletic look of the shoe. 

In skate communities, there is a never-ending debate as to which one is better – a cup sole or a vulcanized sole. DC ended these discussions by introducing the DC Infinite S skate shoes. This low-top made history by fusing cup sole and vulcanized sole into one construction. It is specifically designed to feature a vulcanized construction that offers maximum board feel and flexibility while giving the comfortable feeling and durability of a cup sole. 

Other notable features of the DC Infinite S are its exaggerated rubber toe cap and Super Suede upper that further enhance its durability. 

DC Shoes, Inc. or DC is a globally recognized lifestyle brand that produces skateboarding footwear and apparel for men, women, and kids. It was founded in June 1994 by Ken Block and Damon Way in Carlsbad, California. 

In June 2019, just in time for its 25th year in the business, the renowned skate shoe brand dropped the DC Infinite S alongside the DC Infinite skate shoe. The DC Infinite S is the Super Suede upgrade of the regular Infinite model. Because of this innovative material, it is 50% more durable than regular suede skate shoes.  

The DC Infinite S made such a hype within the skate community because of its unique construction. It features a vulcanized cup sole construction, which offers not just superior board feel and flexibility but also comfort and durability. The low-top Super Suede DC shoe dropped in three colorways, such as navy, black, and red for an original retail price of $70.
