Keep it simple, yet so fresh at the same time.
The Pure XE says it loud and proud with the addition of a classic DC logo wrapped around the heel. Made from durable suede, nubuck or upper leather. The tongue and heel collar are foam padded for comfort and support. The upper also features vent holes for breathability, as well as metal lace eyelets. The performance-wrap cup sole incorporates DC's DGT rubber for durability and grip. DC's trademarked pill pattern graces the tread.

I love the look of these shoes so much, and was trying to resist skating(read:destroying) them. Super comfy, and the leather/suede upper is soft and flexible.
Anyways, after some rainy concerts and lots of mud, I decided to put these shoes through the real test.
With no surprise, as with all other DC skate shoes, they're great for skating. The leather and suede do better than I thought at resisting the grip tape and don't mess the shoe up terribly bad. Excellent flexibility in the shoe for maximum board sensitivity.
Onto the technical features I like-
Multy density soles. Great feature, making it soft where you need it, and harder where it counts.
Extra layer of leather at the bottom of the laces. This might seem like an aesthetic feature, but is actually quite functional. When you ollie, the board will rub up against the shoe and forever leave it's mark on your fresh pair of kicks. This extra little layer of leather helps stop the grip tape from wearing out your shoes prematurely.
Purchased the Dark Chocolate/Star colour off of Whiskey Militia for 30 bucks.
Been wearing these things for a year and you can barely tell there's any wear on em. Super comfy with a real beefy fit. The tongue is about 3/4 of an inch thick and the sole has three grip areas that work perfectly.
Only complaint is that the insole wears out pretty quickly, especially where the balls of your feet are.
these shoes are sick, hardcore and at the same time.. fancy. U can use it a lot and at the end of the night just pass some water and the shoes are brand new, the ruber is the best i ever seen. 5 stars mate.
This shoe feels great, right out of the box! sick look for any occasion, and the sole provides some of the best grip I've ever seen. Super grippy on the toe, mid grip in the arch and just grippy in the heel. Perfect!
Nothing compares to the DGT sole in these shoes, especially in the XE model! Love the super grippy toe. Perfect! This shoe is so comfy with no break-in time. slick style, simple design.
Right out of the box these shoes look super nice, I almost don't want to wear them for fear of messing them up ha. They're really well made and super nice looking.
These shoes are great right from the get-go! No break-in time and thus far, they haven't needed any special insoles. Right on with the sizing. The grip is absolutely amazing on these!
First real skate shoes, good & comfortable but wear out fast. The bottom is made up of different rubbers for better grip and control.
HEY I bought a pare of green and emerald dc shoes and they are wearing out fast can i get a replacement for that $$$
not what i expected to get...
