But in 1993, Droors Clothing became DC Shoes in which it hit $7 million in sales two years after. The company specializes in manufacturing snowboard and skateboarding shoes. By 2004, the business acquired revenue of $1billion.
During the same year, the company was sold to Quicksilver for $87 million when it reached sales of around $100 million. Just like the top shoe brands, DC also clothes skate sports teams in the Asia Pacific, Europe, Canada and Australia in 2013. On June 15, 2016, the company then introduced their new surf team.

Its special edition came out with a full lace system and a slip-on silhouette. This line had multiple colorways made of specialty textile uppers in which skaters and other sneakerheads could easily pair it with any type of clothing.
