DC Evan Smith Hi TX SE History

Introduced in 1994, DC Shoes Inc. was founded by Ken Block, Damon Way, and Danny Way to provide competent footwear for skateboarding. The company's innovative skate shoe designs contributed greatly during the golden era of skateboarding and armed skaters with the right gear. For this reason, DC became popular and exponentially grew within just a year.

The brand grew in many areas – money, recognition, and product-wise. From manufacturing only skate shoes, DC also added footwear that catered to other extreme sports such as surfing, BMX, snowboarding, and motocross. Today, they also offer apparel and accessories for these sports for men, women, and children.

DC has also established pro teams that consist of athletes that ride for the brand, endorse the brand, and design some merchandise. One of the brand's pro skateboarders is Florida-native Evan Smith who's known for his eclectic style in skateboarding. Evan Smith’s own footwear line gives importance to the fusion of athletic performance and casually stylish looks. One of his pro sneaker models is a special release variation of the Evan Smith Hi TX and is appropriately called the DC Evan Smith Hi TX SE, a high-top kick with an upper crafted from a specialty textile material.
