In 1991, Ken Block and Damon Way teamed up to launch a series of start-ups in California, which became instantly well-known in the skating community. Then in 1994, they finally launched DC Shoes, which soon catapulted them to fame. Throughout the years, the DC brand kept a small roster of pro skaters and toured around the world, while endorsing their skate shoes. Eventually, DC branched out into other extreme sports, such as snowboarding and BMX, and further innovating their technologies.

Today, DC has become among the foremost skate and extreme sports shoe brands, becoming a household name. DC is known for its stylish, high-quality sneakers that fit the extreme sports culture. Still, it’s in skateboarding that DC reigns supreme. The DC Lynnfield is a testament to that. It’s a contemporary low-top skate shoe silhouette, which also embodies that brand’s heritage styling, which impacted the skateboarding culture.
