Editor’s Notes: Southern California-based lifestyle and skate brand DC Shoes aligns with Tokyo-based clothing imprint Challenger to reinterpret its classic Evan Smith HI Zero silhouette for spring.
This variation boasts a military-inspired aesthetic with its light olive-like canvas composition with brown and black accents, as the design is essentially suitable for both skateboarding and everyday wear to exemplify both brands’ mutual obsession with detail.
“DC Shoes supported me and my career in my early 20s, and that experience made me who I am today and because of that, collaborating with them was an authentic, organic fit for me.” says Satoru Taguchi, founder of Challenger. “I wanted a shoe that I’d never seen before that I wanted to wear and I think we’ve accomplished that together.”
