DC Block Spartan

Hey everyone, this is my new review for the DC Block Spartan after about one month of using them for both skateboarding and every day wear.


These felt great as soon as I put them on. Not hard and tough like a lot of other skate shoes. They do fit a little on the small size so maybe buy 1/2 size bigger then you need. This is what I did and it’s worked out great. The tongue and collar on these is nicely padded and help keep my comfort level up and Ive found no matter what kinda of socks Im wearing with them they still conform to my foot great and always feel right.


For me personally I love the look of these kicks. The graffiti graphics on the side are wicked and I love how they look.  The colors are clear and crisp and over all they’re my favorite day in and day out shoes to wear. I find their look to be really versatile too and goes with tons of other stuff I wear. They come in a few really sick color combination’s just check out some below!


I’ve been skating in these a whole bunch over the past month and they’re holding up awesome! The fabric doesn’t come
apart of seperate at all. They have a cool lace saving feature which allows you to have the bottom two rows of laces behind an extra piece of leather to guard and protect your laces from being destroyed quickly by your grip tape.


Upper vent system for maximum airflow (I found it actually works with these shoes) Padded tongue and collar for added comfort and ankle support. Stretchable tongue placements come in really handy and help the shoe totally stay in place on your foot, Performance rubber wrap cupsole, this shoe is also created with a revolutionary new system which gives you all the durable benefits of a vulcanized sole without feeling hard and inflexible.

Key Features:

  • Soft yet durable leather upper.
  • Ventilated details.
  • Vented upper airflow system.
  • TPU eyelets.
  • Soft foam tongue and collar for ankle support and all around comfort.
  • Light breathable tongue.
  • Spandex tongue holders for great fit and placement on your foot.
  • High performing rubber wrap cupsole, this is an awesome construction technique that gives you all the benefits of vulcanized sole without feeling uncomfortable or stiff.

Recently DC shoes finished off their “Tonik:Drink Up” tour up the California coast line. This tour was put on to celebrate the release of Dc new “The Tonik” skate shoe. Shane Auckland came along with the DC team and documented the daily events both of skateboarding and day to day stuff across the West Coast. The Berrics have recently put up Part 1 of the “DC to SF” movie. Be sure to keep a look out for part 2 of this coming soon.
