Shoes. Sneakers. Kicks. Whatever you call them, just make sure you recognize how much they affect your performance.
Extreme action athletes Ricky Carmichael, Rob Dyrdek and Travis Pastrana understand this, which is why DC Footwear teamed up with them to create designed shoes for style and performance enhancement.
Pastrana, the Evil Knievel of action, has his name on the Versatile TP. Built for comfort, it features Performalite technology, which DC created from a light polyurethane base for a softer impact. The shoe also has an innovative sole, dubbed DTG [Dynamic Grip Technology], which strategically places soft and hard rubbers to help you grip the board and lift your feet for ollies. Reinforcements were placed in areas that break down quickly.
Last, but certainly not least, the Versatile reflects its name, as it will have you looking like Pastrana on and off the dirt.
