Got these a few years back when they first came out. I went through these shoes in around 3 months of casual street wear. The design is really bland - it just says DC on different parts of the shoe. DC calls their material "suede" but its really just some kind of cheap material covered with a lining. it peeled off. If you want a skate shoe that won't fall apart on you that looks a little like this, Fallen makes some nice options.
