The US shoe brand DVS Shoe Company or also known as DVS has been designing and manufacturing footwear and apparel for various action sports like skateboarding, motocross, and snowboarding since it’s founding in 1995 by the Dunlap brothers Mike, Brian, and Kevin, and Tim Gavin.

It is water-resistant and features weather protective tongue gussets, moisture-wicking inner lining, molded EVA footbed, and CGT outsole technology. The upper is made of leather and nubuck.
