Defy Convention project features show, book
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 13 May, 2014 - It started in 1994 by a group of skateboarders with a viewpoint that was nearly unheard of at the time – that skate shoes should be designed with skateboarder’s needs in mind. From there, the spark of innovation caught fire and led to a revolution in skateboard footwear and apparel. DC’s thirst for innovative product to support progressive ideas has become an inspirational catalyst for the world’s best athletes to embrace the unthinkable, to see the world differently, and to do the never been done.
For 20 years prior, and for 20 years ahead, DC’s dedication to progression inspires athletes around the world to Defy Convention. To celebrate DC’s 20 year anniversary, DC is proud to announce Defy Convention. // 20 Years of DC in Photographs curated by legendary skate and action photographer Mike Blabac.
