Product Review: DC’s Mike Mo Signature Skate Shoe

Ready for some fresh kicks? Tired of constantly skating through stich and only walking away with swampy feet? Great news, DC Shoes‘ new Mike Mo signature skate shoe addresses both of those problems plus a few more mishaps when it comes to picking performance shoes. Scroll down to see how these shoes are built, what makes them so special and why you will never skate in another shoe again!

Mike Mo Capadli is talented beyond belief. So, when DC Shoes decided to give him a signature shoe they made sure that it fit his every want and need. Mike Mo let DC know exactly what he wanted from the inside out, then left it in their hands to make it come to life.

With the use of Super Suede, DC’s Unilite midsole and an Ortholite sockliner this shoe was ready to be built with the best shoe technology available in the skate industry. Next, now that the technology was ready to be implemented, it was time to construct the shoe in a way that would allow for the longest durability and maximum comfort for long-term wear. Add in Dc’s No-Sew construction, reinforced eyebrow and heel counter, a padded collar and an open mesh tongue with vent holes thoughout – this shoe was definitely built to last and be worn for long periods of time with pleasure!

Check out the breakdowns below to see where all of this technology, and more, comes into play on the Mike Mo signature skate shoe. Also, hear Mike Mo break it down himself in the video below!

 Super Suede upper has the look and feel of real suede, but has 50% more durability

 Padded collar provides increased comfort and support

 Mesh tongue and vent holes in the upper improve breathability

 Ortholite sockliner provides an ergonomic fit for comfort
