Crafted for men, the DC Plaza S is available in US size 6 to 14, including half and full sizes in between. Widthwise, it only comes in D - Medium profile. The padded collar and tongue not only enhances the comfort but also maintains its snug fit. The lacing system on the midfoot allows for fit customization.
It’s easy to associate the DC Plaza S with rugged streetwear, but these skate shoes have proven to be quite versatile and pair well with a smart, casual look too.
Match the Plaza S from DC with chinos or cuffed slim-cut pants for a laid back feel or with relaxed straight-cut pants. Plain or printed crew-neck shirts are enough to complete the getup, but men can also wear jackets, coats or cardigans to amplify the style factor.
The SuperSuede material makes up the upper of the DC Plaza S. According to the brand, this fabric is 50% more durable than regular suede but is as soft and comfortable. A vulcanized rubber makes up the sole unit of this trainer. This compound is thick and durable to attenuate shock from each step.
Ken Block started off his clothing venture printing shirts before eventually partnering with Damon Way to create Eightball Clothing. The Droors Clothing brand was launched a year after and the company was incorporated as Circle Distribution in 1993. As the skating culture continued to proliferate, the DC Shoes brand was launched in 1994. By 1997, Circle Distribution was renamed as DC Shoes Inc. and the other lines under the clothing brand were retired.
In 1998, the DC Lynx was introduced. It was designed by Sung Choi who the brand sent to South Korea for two weeks to get a crash course in shoe manufacturing and development after getting hired. The model is now iconic and has been re-released over the years. Presently, most of DC’s footwear, like the DC Plaza S, takes inspiration from the brand’s original skate shoes.
- The DC Plaza S employs the Performance Cupsole which is engineered to cradle the foot for enhanced steadiness.
- Perforations on the vamp and the saddle ensure aeration of the interior.
