DC Shoes first introduced its Ludoka silhouette in 1999 and now, more than 20 years later, the legacy skate brand has tapped the ever-irreverent Bronze56K to bring it back. With two special color schemes plus matching apparel and accessories, the Ludoka provides a classically chunky skate build with some updated flair to boot.

The first makeup offers a hiking boot-esque mix of brown, olive green and navy, embellished with bright pops of orange and purple. The other is more traditional, using a white base with navy and powder blue tones. Each uses wavy overlays on the upper, a thick midsole with embossed DC hits and a signature pill-shaped traction pattern on the grippy rubber outsole. Special branding is done in tasteful fashion, with the tongue’s spellout logo reading “DCSHOECO56K” instead of its standard “DCSHOECOUSA” embellishment, and Bronze’s signature Microsoft Windows-inspired B on the heel tab.

This dynamic duo of shoes is also accompanied by two matching tees, each of which features a design sketch graphic with notes on the shoe’s build. There’s also a co-branded backpack in navy and white that’s build of ripstop polyester fabric and features multiple large storage pockets so you can carry everything you need for an all-day skate session.
