What up Slap's. Don't trip on the website and all that. DC is healthy and things like the team page will be up. As youse know there's been a massive transition with lots of moving parts. The team is just about locked in, sales is locked in, ect. Lucien and Jah are in Italy right now filming for a drop, Shanahan working on stuff in NYC/Philly, OG drops are not slowing down. There is a lot of very dope stuff happening and in the works.



Thanks Josh, good to see you lurking back on the forum.

Please tell them to make the OG drops in smaller sizes, it's nearly impossible for me to find my size and it's honestly a bummer.

Delighted to hear things are actually ok. As a someone who loves chunky shoes (DC, Etnies, etc.), that's reassuring to hear.

Boarderiders Group laying off another 590 people.

Yeah, they've gulped up these brands into their licensing portfolio. Shocking when you consider that Quiksilver, Roxy, Billabong, and even RVCA were massive at one point, used to absolutely dominate in surfing. ABG's entire business model is to just make money off doing as little as possible and earning their money from licensing. Quality and ethics are probably their last concern. ABG at one point even sued Laila Ali for trying to trademark her own name because her dad's name was among their licenses. Going to be interesting to see how this pans out.

If you're referring to Sully Cormier he was never on DC. Vans flow > Asics last I saw but LRAB is a cooler fit for Stu Kirst/Sully both

crazy that he was willing to skate in DCís and shoot ads for them in the first place. Then they had the audacity to still kick him off. Looks better skating in chucks. Same thing as T-Funk lol

As a Josh Wilson fan I'm sad that Josh Wilson is losing a paycheque.

As a Josh Wilson fan I'm happy to no longer have to see Josh Wilson wearing DC Shoes.

feels more and more like a brand affiliate making a point to swing by and say "don't worry, everything's going great with the brand!" is the biggest indicator things are, in fact, not great with that particular brand

first of, big ups to Kalis for dropping by!

and well he said DC is doing good wich means the brand is not going under but still let a bunch of people go/ contracts ran out.

adilson was seen wearing some blazers and superstars on insta if i remember correctly.

ish recently had a new metric colorway and will marshall posted some clip a few days ago still in DCs.

Ish, Kalis, John and Lucien for now (at least what the new website protests to).

Will better get picked up somewhere, it's a fucking travesty given how hard he repped that shit.

Yeah, imagine if spanky came into the sole tech thread and said the same thing kalis did. DC have let go of a hell of a lot more dudes than emerica has, but it all takes is Kalis to come on here, and say things are going good for ppl on here to believe...

Yeah it sucks. I love DC, their shoes skate amazing and liked the skaters they had. Sucks that they have had to drop several people. Especially how the fuck would you drop Wes Kremer?!?!?

I saw recently on insta that Jace Detomasso was rocking Nikes. Which sucks because he rocked DCs hard as fuck.
He has a part in this which was fucking insane and he was repping DC really hard.

Not for Kevin Bilyeu or seemingly Jahmir...

And by possible extension of your claim, Adilson Pedro or Aleka Lange, depending on how you define 2003 cosplay.

I don't think anyone is really under the delusion that DC is "fine", obviously dropping a majority of your riders is not a good sign given their VC overlords, but fuck it, I still want a pair of OG Lynx (not the damn Lynx Zero) so I can wax in nostalgia some more before reverting back to my current reality.

I'm with gsosa on this one. Wes Kremer, Evan Smith, Josef Scott, Jaakko Ojanen, Alexis Ramirez.... List goes on, they all ripped and entertaining to watch. Bummer they couldn't keep them on. I also rocked their shoes and this maybe an unpopular opinion but I loved all the Wes Kremer vulc models. Still skate them when I can find them. Never cared for their chunky shoe reboot.
