The history of DC shoes, initially started with T-shirts. 22-year-old snowboarder Ken Block created printed T-shirts, which he drove under the name "Eightball." Driven by the desire to design and by the desire for perfection in this new passion, he left the University of San Marcos, California.
A few years Ken Block met his skateboard classmates Damon Way. Damon Way, and his brother were directly excited by the business idea. Ken Block parents borrowed money to the men and the DC Shoe Company began. The annual turnover of Eightball was approximately 1.5 million.
Since then, DC Shoes has created a new epoch in the skate shoe industry. The secret of the success of DC lies in the creativity of Ken Block and the incredible skateboard - skills of Danny Way (Damon Way) brother.
