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.

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.

      Best Answer

      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.
