History of the DC Mikey Taylor S
To date, DC Shoes, Inc. can be considered as a pillar in the skate shoes category backed up by a team of renowned professional skateboarders such as Nyjah Huston, Chris Cole, Felipe Gustavo, Steve Berra, and Mikey Taylor among others. Mikey Taylor was one of the first few ones in the team to have a signature DC skate shoe model. Called as DC Mikey Taylor, the shoe debuted in 2012 as part of DC’s Rediscover campaign.
Three years later, DC and Mikey Taylor released the second pro model of the pro skater called the DC Mikey Taylor 2 as a follow up to the DC Mikey Taylor model. It has added features such as the brogue-inspired perforation detailing, a heel stabilizer, and a UniLite midsole for improved impact protection.
To further step up the game, DC also released a Super Suede version of this pro model called the DC Mikey Taylor 2 S. It is aesthetically similar to the second signature shoe of Mikey Taylor, but it utilizes a Super Suede construction on the upper which is 50% more durable than regular suede.
