The DC Shoes Evan Smith S skate shoes seamlessly fuse board feel and crucial impact protection for a low profile fit that takes a pounding without leaving you feeling beaten down. This first of its kind vulc employs an impact absorbing sole that features inverted cones to allow compression upon landing, taking the shock off your feet and joints so you can ride hard longer. The impact protection continues inside the shoe with comfortable insoles, designed to further absorb shock without sacrificing board feel, leaving you with the closeness of a vulc, but the protection of a cup.
