Size and fit
The DC Midway features a mesh upper as well as a mesh padding and tongue. These make for more comfy and breathable wear while an OrthoLite footbed adds cushioning to the foot, an instant plus for many. A traditional lace closure gives the wearer the chance to choose the fit perfect for them.
A unisex pair of kicks, the DC Midway comes in men’s sizes from 6 to 14 US. For women interested in buying the shoe, directly go down a size and a half from one’s regular size to get the right fit in men’s size.
DC Midway Style
The DC Midway low top has that clean look to it that many sneakerheads are looking for in a sneaker. Meanwhile, the solid colors that are available fit to the different personalities of DC fans, assuring a shoe for everyone.
Mixing and matching outfits with the DC Midway is no problem at all thanks to the simple look of the sneakers. Excellent for streetwear, both women and men can rock the kicks in denim jeans, ripped jeans, tapered jeans, skinnies, joggers, and shorts. For tops, t-shirts, henleys, long shirts, and plaid shirts pair well with both the bottoms of choice and the sneakers. For men, get a little formal by exchanging those shirts with polo shirts, casual button downs, and dress shirts.
Women can also add rompers, jumpers, and summer dresses to the mix.
Notably, the DC Midway shies away from the full-on skate silhouette and design of DC shoes. The training-inspired silhouette, a profile that DC is slowly applying to some of its lifestyle and streetwear sneakers, is gaining approval from many who like the simple yet stellar low top.
DC Midway History
When it comes to DC Shoes, it comes as no surprise at all that it has become a household name in the United States and all over the world. Founded in June of 1994, the American company has given action sports fanatics precisely what they have been asking for as well as something to look forward to. The brand started out with steady growth, and by the mid-90s, DC had become popular in the skateboarding community. It was a few years after that it branched out to include other extreme sports such as snowboarding, BMX, surfing, and motocross to name a few.
The growth of the company during its formative years is phenomenal. In its first year, DC was $1.5 million deep in revenues and come 1995; it had already hit a whopping $7 million revenue. When the new millennium rounded the corner, DC Shoes had increased its revenues, reaching an all-time high of $100 million. Within ten years, DC started from nothing and went all the way up to become not just something, but the thing in the world of sneakers and action sports.
Today, DC is regarded as one of the leading manufacturers of high quality and high-performance skating shoes. However, it doesn’t mean DC hasn’t explored the possibility of churning out lifestyle sneakers. DC’s recent releases show that it is ready to be more aggressive in the sneaker market.
Enter the DC Midway, a sneaker that changes the game and brings versatility into the arena. The innovative design of the low top generally exudes lifestyle and fashion while the training-inspired silhouette keeps things grounded, sticking to the true nature of DC Shoes.
- The sneaker has the lightweight UniLite midsole that contributes to the shoe’s impact protection and durability.
- The upper is made of nubuck and mesh.
- To clean the shoe, it is advised that a soft cloth or a soft bristel brush are used to remove visible dirt and dust.
