The old school skate shoe façade mainly characterizes the DVS Comanche sneakers. Completing the bulky silhouette is an upper made of a combination of mesh and leather, suede, or trubuck depending on the colorway. The tongue, in particular, is prominent because of ample padding that gives wearers the much-needed protection, comfort, and support for skateboarding.
