The year was 1995 when a pro skateboarder named Tim Gavin and a pair of skate
shop owners had a vision. They dreamed of creating a footwear company that was
specifically designed for skateboarding. Here we are almost 20 years later and
DVS Skate Shoes is a global force in the shoe market. DVS was founded on the principle
of being made for skaters, by skaters and to this day they have not wavered from
this original mantra. While DVS now caters to a wide variety of board sports,
they remain committed to helping develop the best skaters in the world by producing
the best skate shoes this planet has ever witnessed.
Based out of Los Angeles, California, DVS is perfectly situated in a skateboarding
epicenter that has them on the frontlines of the sport. Their sponsored team is
loaded with riders like Torey Pudwill, Chico Brenes, Zack Wallin and Flo Mirtain.
This team is the driving force behind DVS skate shoes. Rider inspired designs
come to fruition thanks to a close bond between DVS and the team. Feedback and
testing are the key components that the skaters help with in the development of
shoes bred specifically for skating. When you wear DVS, you know your feet are
primed for performance.
No matter what your style of shoes or riding is, DVS has got a model all lined
up just for you. The DVS Rico CT Shoes may look like minimalists, but they actually
pack a serious amount of functionality. Their weight has been slimmed down and
a no-slip rubber sole has been installed for traction that never fails to impress.
There is even a moisture-wicking lining hidden inside to keep your feet dry and
cozy so that you can go harder and make your sessions last longer.
If the weather isn’t cooperating, just grab a pair that is perfectly suited
for the conditions like the DVS Westridge Shoes. Constructed from water-resistant
nubuck leather, these bad boys also utilize a molded rubber toe cap to ensure
that your feet stay nice and dry. The thermal insulated lining and gusseted tongue
team up to dominate all of the foul elements. DVS has gone to great lengths to
keep you riding even with the rain refuses to let up.
Team rider John Jackson had a strong hand in the development of the DVS Yodeler
Boot. This pair is beefed up on all kinds of features that do absolute work when
it comes to protecting your feet from nasty weather. It just goes to show that
no matter where you ride or what the forecast has in store, the DVS team has cooked
up a shoe just for you.
What started as a vision is now based in reality, and DVS is committed to a relentless
pursuit of crafting the best skate shoes in the world. If you love skating as
much as DVS does, then you won’t be able to help falling for their footwear.
