Good move?  Bad move?  Indifferent?

Bad move in my opinion. I havent seen someone wearing a pair of DVSs in over a decade or a shop that carries them.

i thought he left until i clicked on the link.

Wishing he did leave, DVS is weak. Dropping Hoyle and Cao killed it for me.

Hope Torey doesn't sign back on, I could see him on DC

?DVS has been family since 1997 and has always had my back 100% and I will always have their?s, 100%!!! Re-signing wasn?t even a question! Just needed to make sure the damn pen worked!? says Song.

What a cool fuckin dude.
I actually did hit another skater in the face with my shoe once at a demo doing a shoes fly off kickflip but he was cool with it.

Some DVS shoes don't look that bad but I never see them at any stores besides the mall shops.

He's literally stayed loyal to most of his brands. Been with Dwindle forever, DVS, Matix and even Tensor for christ sake.

I don't think it matters honestly, would he be able to pick up another sponsor? I mean sure you would think "it's fucking Daewon!" but its a different world now. DVS has always sucked, they've never had good shoes despite have a good team in the past. I just wish Daewon would quit skating shit that noone can relate to and just take his skill and do really clean basic shit, instead of ridiculous circus tricks on trees and rocks.

If you don't think Daewon could get another shoe sponsor, then you are a silly goose.

Globe's out of Dwindle right? and he and Haslam are good buds, so that could work fine

I could also see him in Lakais.

I hope he does some ridiculous circus tricks on the trees and rocks at all the Chik-Fil-A's near you.

Retaining Daewon will give the new version of DVS at least some chance not to turn into another Airwalk, but I'm not holding my breath.

Back in the days in the late 90's/early 2000, I always put DVS in the top next to Es and DC. This was when more tech shoes looked cool rather then simple ones like Vans. I didn't even like Lakai's back then and I always thought Etnies had like one shoe that they just recolored a bunch. But DVS had Getz shoe, HUF and even Dill's were pretty sick. I would always look forward to their pro line ups just like with DC and Es with every Koston shoe that came out. Oddly though, I think Daewon had the ugliest shoes out of all pros on DVS.

I'd rather see him in some Lakai's to be honest, but free shoes are free shoes. I guess he just wants stay with the Podium fam

i really can't imagine Daewon wearing something that isn't DVS's. wonder who will stay on and who will leave?

 i used to be into em around the time kerry getz got on but really didn't care for em. had a few pairs that i found in sale sections that didnt skate bad.

This was probably my favourite of that era. So good to skate in. Even Vans were trying to be tech then

I don't care what shoe sponsor Daewon has, but he deserves to me making that NIKE money.

These were HUFs first shoe but I always liked his second one the most.

And I still remember Dill had a shoe that came out that was like a runner and looked very Nike looking but it got pulled super fast for some reason. He even had an all gold shoe.

These Dill's were tits too:

It would be strange for DVS to continue without him. Isn't the name of the company his full initials? Maybe someone mentioned this but I am too lazy to read the whole thread.

The guy skates his trucks without bushings rather than leave Tensor.  He had some tough times when no one was fuckin with him.  He realizes having someone's back, and them having yours, through thick and thin, can pay off more in the long run than sponsor shopping for the biggest check. 

Dudes probably the most technically advanced skater on the planet right now.  And he still does plenty of stuff that is relatable, clean and awesome looking.  He just does crazy weird tech shit too.  He shouldn't be discounted for being better than everyone. 

Best to him and DVS.
