History of the DC Stag

Launched in 1994, DC Shoes Inc. was the brainchild of two friends who decided to venture into start-up companies. Damon Way and Ken Block wanted to create a company that manufactured footwear equipped with skate-centric features. DC steadily grew since its inception and was even recognized as the leading brand in skateboard footwear during the 90s.
