Francisco Black Corduroy–$25
Shoes: they’re not just for outside anymore. Well, at least not if you’re talking about the DVS Francisco Black Corduroy House Shoe. There are a million reasons to wear these babies. Maybe you’re tired of the jolting shock of the freezing tile floor in your bathroom every morning, or perhaps you’re sick of having to watch for bits of broken glass as you slither out of bed (or off the couch) the morning after a crazy house party. Or, maybe you just want to avoid the winter chill while maintaining a cool vibe. No matter what, the Francisco Black Corduroy House Shoe has you, and your feet, covered. And at just $25, you can’t afford not to have a pair.
Enduro 125 Castlerock Black Nubuck Shoe–$65
Want to be able to say you’ve legitimately beaten Jeffrey Herlings in a motocross race? Of course you do! Who wouldn’t want to be on the very short list of people who’ve defeated one of the best racers in the world? Unfortunately for you, you’ll never make the cut, but you can still get the next best thing by slapping on a pair Jason Anderson’s signature DVS shoes. You’ll still suck at motocross, but at least you’ll be sporting the same footwear as someone who has beaten Herlings. The padded collar and tongue, suede and leather upper materials, and lightweight molded EVA foot bed, which makes for a smooth ride, are just a bonus.
Comanche Black Charcoal Nubuck Shoe–$75
If beating Herlings doesn’t excite you, don’t worry; DVS still has the perfect shoe for you—the Brian Deegan signature shoe. Yes, it’s got all the stuff that makes a nice shoe–like high impact insole and midsole units, durable cupsole construction, a reinforced ollie area for durability, high-density collar and tongue padding for support, and an open-cell breathable mesh tongue–but what really makes these shoes pop is the nubuck. Just what is nubuck, you ask? It’s top-grain leather that’s been buffed, which, in short, gives it a velvet-like surface. It’s also resistant to wear, which makes these puppies appropriate for everything from the pits to the next supercross after-party. Head over to dvsshoes.com to get a set and channel your inner Deegan. Just don’t go ghosting your bike off a finish line jump the next time you win a race.
