It appears that DVS is sticking by us fixed gear riders well into next year with the super cool Keirin Pack. The Convict SP KRN shoe will be available in 9 colours from spring 2011.
I remember when DVS first came on the scene waaaaaaay back in the 90’s, they caused quite a stir in the skate scene. I first saw them in Radlands and we were all amazed by the elasticated tongue straps cause that meant we could make our shoes extra wide without them falling off all the time, they are on every skate shoe these days and I dunno if the tongue straps were around before DVS but that was the first time us guys had seen them. I love that they’re backing the fixed gear scene now and not just with the odd token bandwagon shoe either but with the Keirin shoe from last year, the great collab with Cadence, the Keo Curry signatures and now this Keirin Pack.
This whole pack is killer, there’s a colour for everyone in here and a nice slim toe perfect for riding, I haven’t seen them in the flesh* yet so I can’t comment on anything else but I’m gonna remedy that asap and will report back. *There’s no flesh in these puppies, they are all canvas, whooooooop! Stay tuned for more news on these…
