Who should buy the DVS Celsius

The shoe design gives a bulky appearance, but buyers report that it fits snug and smaller than their usual sizes. Lace-up closure allows a customized fit. It also features a heavy-duty collar and tongue padding for additional support and protection. Its insoles are removable. It is a solid option if:

  • A retro-looking shoe to satisfy your nostalgia is what you prefer.
  • Your fashion taste leans more on footwear with a thickset design.
  • You want a sneaker that matches well with various leisurewear.

Style of the DVS Celsius

Recent skate shoe trends show a resurgence of chunky skate shoes that perhaps shadow the success of the chunky, dad sneakers trend. Whoever said that these classic, old school skate shoes are out of style is proven wrong by the DVS Celsius shoes. 

DVS Celsius Style1

Styling the DVS Celsius could be challenging because of its chunkiness. But it helps that broad colorway options such as black/charcoal/white, charcoal/grey, black/black, and black/charcoal/white/turquoise are available. Like other bulky skate shoes, you can pair this shoe with a hoodie, logo t-shirts, and trousers or skate shorts.
