The DC Trase S is a men’s skate shoe that’s available in US sizes 6 to 14. Ladies who fancy a pair should go 1.5 sizes down from their standard shoe size. This sneaker fits true to size for the most part however some purchasers said that it felt bigger than expected and recommended going half a size down.
Designed in a sleek skate look, this pair offers a versatile aesthetic that could be worn with almost any casual ensemble. Users were seen pairing it with chinos, jeans, shorts, and khakis for that laidback cool vibe, while the ladies can match it with leggings, skirts, and dresses. Moreover, with the DC Trase S' slim profile, simple design, and low-top silhouette, this sneaker could be your next fuss-free staple shoe.
This sneaker’s slim profile that’s crafted with a Super Suede upper and vulcanized sole are its main strengths. Its sleek design looks right at home in today’s slim sneaker trend, durability is always a plus for shoes, and its vulcanized sole provides great board feel. These attributes are ultimately what make this pair noteworthy.
DC Shoe Inc.'s story started in 1994 as two friends decided to venture into creating multiple start-up companies. Damon Way and Ken Block established DC to provide footwear with the essential features for performing tricks on the board. The brand hit $7 million in revenue in only its first year of operation.
DC was eventually acquired by Quicksilver in 2004 but remains steadfast in staying faithful to its skate roots. Today, the company added apparel and accessories in their product lineup and has also established pro teams in different extreme sports such as BMX, motocross, and snowboarding.
One of the brand's well-known sneaker models is the DC Trase, which was introduced in the spring of 2015. Later on, DC released a Super Suede version of the shoe and called it the DC Trase S. This pair's upper is crafted from the brand's signature Super Suede which is 50% more durable than regular suede.
