DC Dumps Dyrdek

dc-dyrdek

As part of QuikSilver’s bankruptcy restructuring, DC shoes is dropping Rob Dyrdek as well as it’s entire BMX team. For the longest time Dyrdek’s name has almost been synonymous with DC. Is it like Nike declining to deal with Michael Jordan? Is it interesting? What does that mean for skateboarding? Absolutely nothing.

    The first DC shoes I ever saw here in Belgium were Dyrdek signature shoes, in 1995 or something. They looked pretty cool but they were also the most expensive shoes in the shop, so I had to buy Vans …

    He’s probably glad he can now wear something other than DC clothing for a change. If it was me I would apologize to my fans for being a pimp for DC and I would publicly burn all the clothing, etc that DC gave me. DC put their brand on everything. They were almost as bad as KISS with all that marketing.

    Yeah, I feel like the core culture really moved away from DC a while back. I still remember when Dyrdek was ripping on the Alien team. His Photosynthesis part was good. My first “skate” shoes were Josh Kalis DC’s.
