Size and fit
The DC Heathrow TX SE is offered in both men and women's sizes. The guys can choose from sizes 7 to 13 while the women can select from sizes 5 to 11. Most users claim that the shoe fits smaller than standard sizing hence they recommended going half a size up.
The shoe utilizes the traditional lace-up closure but functions mainly as just a design since the cleatie construction provides a sock-like fit.
DC Heathrow TX SE Style
The DC Heathrow TX SE's streamlined profile exudes a modern running shoe's aesthetic that is lightweight and easy to pair. Different patterns and color combinations enhance the shoe's design and not to mention the wearer's ensemble too. If you've picked out a neutral colorway, you can dress your shoe in almost any casual outfit. If you went for a colorful or printed pair, then the safest way is to match it with a neutral themed outfit, but if you're feeling festive, you can easily complement it with a shirt or accessories with the same color as your shoe.
Apart from its sleek shape bathed in an array of colorways and prints, the DC Heathrow TX SE's cleatie construction also received compliments from users for its secure fit and ease of use. Moreover, technologies such as the OrthoLite insole and UniLite infused midsole added to the model's upgraded comfort for every day.
