Here’s more reason for you to pick up your boards again. DC takes its signature DNA design elements and fuses them into their latest offering, the Trase. Embodying the motto, “The Original. Since Now.”, the Trase sticks to its promise of providing comfort and durability in their shoes. Although they’re known for their oversized skate shoes, the Trase has a low profile and features a slim, tough canvas upper, paired with a foam-padded collar and shock-absorbing 6.5mm EVA insole. It also boasts an abrasion-resistant vulcanised rubber outsole and the brand’s trademark “pill pattern” recessed tread. But the beauty really lies in the colours ($79 to $109) – 14 colourways for men, seven for women and seven for kids means there’ll definitely be one you’ll grow to love.


DC shoes are looking for entrants to create their own design for the new DC Trase shoes. The overall winner will receive US$1,500 worth of DC apparel and footwear + US$1,500 cash, and have their design produced in 2016’s collection, which will be sold throughout Southeast Asia. Submission ends 30 June.

There will also be a winner for each country (Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Philippines) who stand to win a $750 gift pack + $750 cash. The artist with the biggest supportfrom the community will receive $1000 gift pack + $1000 cash.
