DC Shoes continues their alliance with Lemar and Dauley on a collection featuring the brands Xander model. The muse for the Summer 2009 Lemar and Dauley Xander was racquet sports—inspiration was pulled from tennis and the equipments used. The tennis racquet became a source of inspiration, along with both the clay and grass courts that are used as the playing field. Special attention to detail led to the utilization of a mesh material on the side panels and tongue of the Xander as a reflection of the interlocking strings used within the racquet. The houndstooth detail served as an iconic brand logo, much like the branded logos printed on tennis racquet strings, while the clear sole of the shoe reflected the nylon material used to make the cords. In the final details, leather trim was used around the edges as well as under the sole of the shoe to represent the leather taping around the handle of the racquet. The insoles were printed with an abstracted graphic of the playing field itself to provide a complete story. Both colorways drop May 1st, 2009 at select DC LIFE retailers worldwide.
