The DC Shoes Pure XE skate shoe combines a classic design with updated materials to create a look that nods to the old-school yet keeps up with the new and modern styles. The upper is made of either synthetic nubuck or suede with perforated panels and medial eyelets for abrasion resistance and improved ventilation. There's a foam-padded tongue and collar, Spandex tongue holders, a performance TPR-wrapped cupsole and TPR toe wrap tape for superior board control. Non-removable insole. The look is completed with a DGT™ Plus rubber outsole for great grip and traction.
