Size and fit

The DC Crisis TX is a men's skate shoe. Ladies who wish to cop a pair should go 1.5 sizes down from their normal shoe size for a comfortable fit. For instance, if a girl's size is usually 8 in women's sizes, she must get a size 6.5 in the men's range.

Supposedly, it should fit true to size. However, this sneaker is reported to feel tight in the toe area, and consumers with wide feet are advised to go half a size up to compensate for the lack in width. If you have a narrow to normal width feet, then this kick might fit perfectly. The DC Crisis TX also features foam padded collar and tongue for added cushioning and comfort, while its canvas upper combined with ventilation holes offer optimal breathability and keep feet nice and dry.

Consumers could rock this kick with cropped chinos, a crewneck sweatshirt, and a beanie for that new school skater outfit or dress it up in jeans, button-down polo, and a smart jacket for a dapper ensemble.

Notable Features

The DC Crisis TX's main asset lies in its streamlined and straightforward design, as it offers a universal and versatile style making for a convenient kick to wear for every day. Moreover, its canvas textile upper provides breathability perfect for hot summer days.
