DC Manteca History

Founded by Damon Way and Ken Block in Carlsbad, California, DC quickly grew to become a renowned action sports brand and a leader in performance skateboarding shoes. At first, the brand manufactured footwear exclusively for action sports like snowboarding and skateboarding. After a year of brand’s operation, it reached revenue of $7 million and continued to increase in the next ten years.

In March 2004, Quicksilver acquired the DC shoes for $87 million, helping the brand unlock another milestone and reaching a billion dollars in revenue. Today the brand has become a global entity, not only in DC skateboarding but also the lifestyle shoe line expanded to include men’s, women’s and kids’ lifestyle shoes, accessories and apparels.

Returned to the shelves in 2015, the DC Manteca is redesigned to a lightly slimmed-down profile to meet modern skate performance. It has an outstanding classic silhouette that utilizes an enhanced cupsole to withstand the wear along with the Impact G-technology for heel impact absorption, allowing skaters to exhibit their fantastic skateboarding flips and tricks.
