DC Shoes has always owned a fair share of the action-sports footwear market, but the Ken Block-led label is branching into athletic footwear with its new Unilite Trainer for Fall 2012. With “extreme” sports athletes rigorously training to compete at the highest level — and advance their respective sports — just like athletes in any other conventional sport, the move to create an athletic shoe is seemingly a logical one. The Unilite features a lightweight and cushioned midsole, a molded Ortholite footbed for maximum instep cushioning, and is lined with a moisture-wicking inner bootie. The shoe will be available in four colorways for both men and women, as well as several signature versions from DC athletes.
