DC Shoes is a brand that was made by skateboarders for skateboarders. DC has since been dedicated to inspiring athletes around the world to Defy Convention.

Taking on the globe with its battle cry of defying convention, DC hosts annual skate tours together with its roster of DC athletes. With the success of last year’s installment, DC Shoes is set to return to the Philippines–bringing in nine global athletes for its DC Defy Convention Southeast Asia Tour 2014.

With stops in Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, and Jakarta, the DC Skate Tour will be dropping by in Manila with an autograph signing and a skate exhibition  session on November 5, 2014 at the SM Mall of Asia Music Hall.

The tour will give the pros a chance to get up close and personal with the fans they have inspired through this event. A heavy-hitting team of some of the world’s most promising skateboarders, DC Skate Tour will be bringing in Matt Miller, Wes Kremer, Evan Smith, Felipe Gustavo, Cyril Jackson, Madars Apse, Tommy Fynn, Kota Ikeda, and Bobby de Keyser. The demo is bound to take on a different personality as the DC team enjoys thrashing the custom-built skate park.

“Skateboarding in Southeast Asia is taking off and the skate community is becoming increasingly global due to social media. The local skate communities follow the global athletes such as Matt Miller, Wes Kremer and Evan Smith so it is great for them to get an opportunity to mingle with them in the flesh. By continuing to invest in the development of skateboarding in the region, we hope to see a skater from South East Asia rise to the top of the world’s skateboard rankings in the future,” said Sammy Gosling, DC Southeast Asia marketing executive.

True enough, it is through events such as this that DC aspires to empower the skateboarding community to keep on skating and leveling up their game. Who knows, a Filipino skater born and bred in our streets may just emerge from the ground up and onto the podiums in skateboarding competitions all over the world.


To keep things exciting and worthwhile for its customers, DC will be offering a special promo in time for the DC Skate Tour event. For a minimum purchase of P5,000 worth of DC products, the customer gets a DC shoes 20th anniversary white shirt for free.

The 20th anniversary white shirt serves as a VIP pass in the upcoming DC 2014 Skate tour that entitles him/her to have an automatic VIP pass that will have priority access in the autograph signing, free flaglets, and signed posters. The shirts will be available on November 4.
