DC Shoes rolls out a new addition to its premium roster of footwear: the Evan Smith HI ZERO CH. This limited-edition sneakers are produced in collaboration with Tokyo-based clothing company, Challenger.
A sleek new take on the Evan Smith HI ZERO silhouette, the Evan Smith HI ZERO CH features a deconstructed silhouette which uses a canvas upper with full grain leather accents. To top it all off, it features a unique rubber toe cap for a longer-lasting shoe and the brand’s trademark IMPACT-I technology for high-impact protection.Founded in 2009 by professional skateboarder Satoru Taguchi, Challenger opened its first flagship store in Harajuku, Tokyo. Borne out of Taguchi’s predilection for American garage culture, Challenger is known for its unique and highly-sought after collaborations with renowned bike builders, skateboarders, and musicians.
Looking back, Taguchi recalls his enduring relationship with DC Shoes as one of the brands that he looked up to in his youth. “DC Shoes supported me in my early 20’s. Back then I skated all day, every day and still do today. The experiences and memories from my days with DC made me who I am today, which is why I was so excited when they asked to collaborate with Challenger,” he says.
Drawing from his own personal influences, Taguchi has lent his utilitarian sensibilities to create a military-inspired footwear that is both suitable for skateboarding and everyday wear—an approach to design that mirrors DC Shoes’ own philosophy towards innovative and functional design.
