The sacred art of skateboarding has always inspired cool footwear. If the whole Californian ‘surf the streets’ maxim stands, then a good pair of skateboarding shoes must be traditionally styled – simple, vibrant and eternally comfortable.

That’s exactly what DC’s latest lineup seems to be. Dubbed ‘the Trase’, the shoes are drenched in rich primary colours with a simple, practical design that should prove functional for skateboard enthusiasts and unfailingly stylish for everyone else. The Trase lineup is now available at all Quiksilver stores across the country.
