Good to know

The DC Manteca SE is a unisex shoe that is exclusively offered in men's sizing. The guys could choose from sizes 6 to 14, while ladies who fancy a pair should go 1.5 sizes down from their normal shoe size.

Like most skate shoes, it boasts a traditional lace-up closure that can be adjusted for a lockdown fit. The tongue and collar are both adequately padded for extra cushioning and comfort.

Staying true to the classic skate shoe's minimalist aesthetic, the DC Manteca SE's leather upper displays a streamlined and straightforward design that will suit any skater and consumer type. Available in a number of varying neutral tones, it makes for an easy shoe to match with a myriad of casual ensembles. Casual staples such as shorts, jeans, joggers, or chinos would easily look great paired with this kick. The ladies can play it up more with the added choices of skirts and dresses.

The DC Manteca SE's contemporary skate look is what most consumers raved about this kick, but it's what it comes equipped with that captured their attention for a longer time. The shoe's excellent impact protection was significant to most skateboarders, thanks to its cupsole construction combined with the brand's Impact-G technology.

DC is a company that manufactures products intended for skateboarding and snowboarding. Founded by Ken Block and Damon Way in 1994, it is regarded as a relatively new brand compared to other sportswear companies. Ten years after, in 2004, Quicksilver acquired it.

Initially, DC started producing just footwear, but today their inventory includes apparel and accessories for women, men, and kids. Despite the changes that occurred  DC remains grounded in extreme sports and keeps skateboarding and snowboarding at its core.

The DC Manteca SE is one of the brand's many footwear offerings. It is a successor to the Manteca, a legendary design introduced in the early 2000s. This sneaker is offered in different neutral colorways.

  • It is offered in Medium width.
  • The upper is crafted from leather.
  • Perforation detailing provides maximum ventilation to keep feet dry.
