Shoes - DC Decade, Danny Way's signature model

DC Shoe Co USA Decade

The Bottom Line

The Decade is Danny Way's tenth signature shoe, and he and DC have learned a lot over the years about how to make a great shoe. The way Danny puts it, "You don't see it, you feel it." He's talking about all the special features packed into the shoe, and there are many. And yet, the shoe looks clean, simple, calm and relaxed. It's the perfect blend.

Guide Review - Shoes - DC Decade, Danny Way's signature model

You really gotta try these shoes. They look smooth and clean and simple, but jsut below the surface they're packed with state-of-the-art features, all the result of years of design and research.

Decades are great for skateboarding. They come with perfomalite polyurethane, Dynamic Grip Technology, heel airbags and the remarkable Aerotech Ventilation System - all of these work together for you to skate with more control and more comfort, and for the shoe to last a good long time.

I also have to mention the way these shoes look one more time - these shoes have a very simple, solid, clean look. Decades come in three styles, featuring either action nubuck or heavy duty suede, action leather. The suede model comes in black, and the shoes are nice enough to wear for work (I wore them with a suit, and received compliments). These shoes have such clean lines that you can wear them anywhere.

DC's premier skate shoe, the Decade is a must have for the serious skateboarder, and worthy of the Danny Way signature. It's somehow fitting that Danny broke two world records the summer before these shoes hit the market. Try them out - you won't be disappointed.

My Favorite Danny Way DC Shoe, Member JohnJacobNolan

When does this shoe come out? I have been looking for a release date and there does not seem to be one out there to find. There are DC's you wear and DC's you ride in; these are definately the latter.
