Seven years after the Quicksilver acquisition, the brand reinvented itself with a new logo and the inclusion of a new skateboarding team, to which the brand is most popular.
When you talk about extreme sports, the first thing that comes to mind is skateboarding. DC Shoe Co has always been involved in skateboarding since the day it was founded. Co-founder Damon Way is brother to professional skateboarder Danny Way, and the original clothing line Droors Clothing was initially marketed to skateboarders.
