Editor’s Notes: Doublet founder Masayuki Ino has taken his three favorite DC sneakers and combined them to make the Doublet x DC Hybrid. With ’00s footwear having a moment — brands such as Nike and adidas have been bringing back models from the early ’00s recently — it makes sense that DC Shoes is part of that revival. Skate shoes from that era, in particular, have made a return. Luxury houses such as Lanvin and Louis Vuitton have put ’00s skate shoe-inspired sneakers on their runways at Paris Fashion Week. If high-end brands are doing it, why shouldn’t the OG of chunky skate shoes get involved?

“I used to wear DC SHOES when I was a teenager. As an adult, I wondered which OG shoe I would buy, but this time I could not choose. Each of DC Shoes' models has a unique characteristic and design,” explains Ino San. “So, this inspired me. I wondered if I could make a super OG DC sneaker that combined all the good points from each of my favourite styles and, and I am proud to introduce my dream sneaker in the DC x Doublet Hybrid.”
