DC keeps me laced in the game with the best sneakers. These are some of the most comfortable shoes I've owned in my life, and DC comes with awesome deals a few times a year, so I'm getting my sneakers at close to 60% off retail prices. The colors are awesome, with so many colors to match your outfits. Durable, I use them for Biking/BMX, and they hold up extremely well when I set my sneakers to destroy mode. Thanks DC, for keeping me strong in the sneaker game.

These were my 4th pair of DC shoes and I love the shoe, it is nice looking and comfortable. My issue is with the air pocket design. The air pockets don't last at all and when they go the shoe becomes unwearable. I have gone through 2 pairs of these. The first pair the air pocket went after about 2 months of wearing the shoe. I sent them back with no issue got my second pair and the air pocket went on the second pair after about a month. I was wearing them as an every day shoe no sports or strenuous activity. Since the air pocket has gone the shoes are pretty much unwearable as there is no support in the heal because the air pocket has died which in turn makes the shoes squeak like crazy. It is too bad because I really like the shoe and my latest pair are pretty much still brand now so it is pretty disappointing that I can't wear them. My advice stay away from these shoes and get a pair with no air pocket.

        Comments about dcshoes Men's Cortex Shoes:

        Love the look of the shoe, and they are comfortable. My only problem is with the air pocket design. I have gone through 2 pairs of these because of the air pockets going. The first pair I sent back and got a new pair no problem, but within a month the air pocket went on the new shoes now they are unwearable because there is no support from the air pockets and when I do wear them they squeak like crazy. It is too bad because the rest of the shoe looks brand new and held up great. I wore the shoe as an every day shoe no sports, or anything strenuous so it is a bit frustrating that the shoes are pretty much useless after a month of normal use.

            They look awesome and feel awesome.

            Best for shorts. Would be good with skinny jeans though I dont wear them, so they aren't the best with my boot cut jeans. The jeans just sit wrong with the big tongue.

                  I bought these shoes for one, landing sick tricks on my mew DC board. They have proven to hold up to harsh landings off half-pipes, dumpsters, railings and buildings!! They r even amazing just to walk in.
                  I get a feeling DC will remain my choice of skate shoes for come sometime! !
