Lightweight and low-profile, the DVS Daewon 13 CT Men's Skate Shoe is what legendary skater Daewon Song trusts to help him get it done in the streets, and it's not hard to see why. It has a durable suede upper with a long vamp so less lacing is exposed to your griptape, and an Achilles tendon relief panel provides comfort for hours of skating. Vulc construction provides more flexible sole, and minimal padding allows for snug fit to give you the board feel to pull off tech tricks like Daewon.
These are a perfect mix between the Torey's and the Rico's; flexibility and that 'slipper-like' feel of the Rico, but the comfort and more thicker padding of the Toreys's. They are super comfortable for skating and perfect (and good looking) for just a walk-around shoe too. Unlike the Rico's, I would actually feel comfortable taking these down bigger things like stairs and gaps. These worn in really quickly for me, and with the more padding I feel like they'll last longer than the Rico's. Although for DVS shoes I find that when doing anything with a heelflip, they'll wear out twice as fast, but I guess any shoe is like that. So, if you like the Rico's or Torey's, or you're looking for a slimmer Torey or a thicker Rico, this is a perfect shoe, I recommend these and I'll probably be getting anther pair when these wear out.
