DC join the ranks of trad-sports brands steering away from athletic/performance/skate and into the world of fashion with their Wings And Stones pack. So named because of the wing-tip inspired brogue pattern on the upper of both the Admiral and Sector 7, both shoes are double-dipped in a cement colourway and given a brushed suede once-over. Available from all good DC retailers.
Done up with a classic wing tip toe for a touch of luxury, introducing the Sector 7 WT and Admiral WT of the Holiday 2009 DC LIFE Collection. Built on DC’s slim and comfortable dress sneaker outsole, filling the uppers are premium leathers and construction, a trademark of DC. The incorporation of cement and concrete colors, a staple element in skateboarding, runs as a key design thematic, and the honed stone effect on the collar and straps represent what ledges look like after they’ve been grinded. A unique double ankle strap-a first for DC-adds flare and class for days on the high top Admiral WT
