The DC Men's Pure XE Skate Shoe combines classic design with the latest materials, for a look that says “Yo!” to the old-school but runs with the new. Heavy suede and full-grain leather panel uppers provide grip-tape resistance, while retro sidewalls wrap around a soft, grippy DGT Plus gum rubber sole. DC's plush padded tongue and collar make the Pure XE a go-to, whether you're headed to the pipe, the park, or just down the street for a soft pack and a nudie mag.

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

These shoes are easily my favorite shoes I have bought in a long time. Look and feel great. I have worn them skateboarding and they have great grip. Super comfortable. I highly recommend these shoes!

    Straight boss, love the DC SHOES wrapping around the heel, smooth style not too bulky, great shoe for the price


    These are awesome

    • Gender:Male
    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    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.


    Too cool to skate in!

      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.

            The tongue on this skate shoe - is it different from the thin tongue of DC's Pure Slim shoe?

            Does this shoe have a fat tongue or thin one like Pure Slim?

            It has a thicker tongue, not the slim version.

            Sorry. We no longer have the DC Shoes Pure XE in the rainbow color. Those images were shot to show the different features of the shoe. We usually don't carry many of the men's shoes in sizes smaller than an 8 but you may be able to find something your size in our Kid's shoes. We carry up to a size 7 in some brands.


            Review Title

              First real skate shoes, good & comfortable but wear out fast. The bottom is made up of different rubbers for better grip and control.

              Great skate shoes, great fit and awesome design
              Don't hesitate and buy it

              Sweet kicks

                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.


                gotta love the DGT sole

                  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!


                  real great!

                    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.



                      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!
