The History of DC Shoes
At the very beginning, college friends Ken Block and Damon Way were screen printing T-shirts in 1989 together under the name Eightball.
Unfortunately that name was already claimed by another company in America at the time, so the brand was renamed Droors Clothing, and later changed again the DC Shoes.
Embraced by professional skateboarders in California, DC Shoes were an integral part of the skate scene by the late 1990s.
Rock band Linkin Park were fans of the brand, collaborating on their own DC Shoes in an Axel colorway in 2003.
The current logo of the letters D and C with a star was established in 2011.
