Everyone you know skates unprotected; don't be another statistic.
From a college campus to a seedy back alley, the best way to stay protected is to wrap it in rubber ... your foot, that is. DC's Airbag runs from the heel through the arch of the Men's Command RM LTD Skate Shoe to add lightweight cushion, but it's the extra rubber around the toe that sets it apart from the rest. Your risk of trading bodily fluids with a steel rail or concrete stair is greatly reduced with DC's soft Dynamic Grip Technology rubber around the toe and at the ollie spot. Factor in DC's super-tacky 'pill pattern' sole and you don’t have to fear an accidental-mating with an inanimate object.
