DC Pure TX SE history

Ken Block and Damon Way wanted to make a substantial change in the skateboarding world by creating footwear with high-performance and stylish features.

They formed the DC company in 1993 and launched their first-ever skate shoe a year after in collaboration with pro skater Danny Way.

In 1995, Rob Dyrdek and Block designed a technology that could withstand the hard wearing use of the skaters.

Barely two decades in the sneaker market, the DC has been considered one of the leading producers of high-quality and on-trend skateboarding footwear for men, women, and children.
