The 22 year old snowboarder Ken Block created printed T-shirts which he then sold under the name “Eightball”. Driven by designing and the desire for perfecting his new passion and skills, he went to the University of San Marcos California, where he studied design. By a lucky coincidence, it was there he met his skateboarding classmate Damon Way, a few years later. Damon Way and his brother were immediately inspired by Block’s business idea, and wanted to help Ken bring his company further forward. Ken Block’s parents lend money to the three and the DC Shoe Company was founded. The annual turnover of Eight Ball was then around 1.5 million.Since then, DC Shoes has created a new era in the industry of skateboard shoes. The secret of DC’s success lies in the creativity of Ken Block and the incredible skateboarding-talent of Danny Way (Damon Way’s brother). Danny Way once jumped on a skateboard from a helicopter, landing on a ramp decorated with the logo of DC Shoes.The DC brand has sponsored many famous extreme athletes and always looks for new, fresh talent to support.
