Staying true to its DNA of coming out with footwear that caters to the demands of the skate culture and related lifestyles all over the world, DC Shoes has released the DC Manteca Collection.
Now available in the country, the new collection has the brand reintroducing one of its iconic silhouettes but now constructed with a modern update and cutting-edge technology.
The latest line comes in two variants, namely, Manteca TX SE and the Manteca SE.
For the Manteca Collection, DC Shoes uses its IMPACT-G technology, a heel impact protection gel made from rubber and polyurethane. A cupsole construction that is set into the heel area of the footwear, what it ultimately does is disperse the shock of impact from big drops and harsh landings — promising maximum heel impact absorption each time.
This unique component coupled with a new foam faded package in the tongue, a collar lining, and an abrasion-resistant sticky rubber outsole all work together to ensure a far more protective and supportive fit for the most aggressive and hard-charging skaters.
Though both models feature the same “Pill Pattern” thread trademark of DC, a stark difference can be found between the upper construction and material used for each of the two shoes.
The Manteca TX SE, which comes in Black and Red, features a heavy weight canvas construction that is backed by DC Shoes’ super canvas reinforcement. The special textile upper does not blow out like traditional canvas all the while retaining the structural integrity of the shoes.
Meanwhile, the Manteca SE, which comes in white, features a special leather upper that proves stunning as it is immensely durable out on the streets; ready to withstand the wear and tear that comes with a life led by action.
With its new releases, DC Shoes said that it is hoping to fortify its standing as the most sought-after athletic lifestyle brand embraced by skaters, artists, and alternative lifestyle enthusiasts.
The Manteca TX SE is sold for P4,990 while the Manteca SE sells for P5,490.
DC Shoes is distributed in the Philippines by the Primer Group of the Companies. — Michael Angelo S. Murillo
