    Won’t be to everyones taste, but a cheap summer trainer for a tenner (+postage!)…

    DC Manual TXSE Worn Grey – Unisex L

    …from Rollersnakes – so legit source.

    DC sizing – fairly true to size compared to other brands?

    No size 13s though.

    I nearly bought some then thought ‘hang on, I don’t really like the style’ and bailed.

    For that price I’ll take a punt – ta. 🙂

    Excellent ta, Mrs brain likes her old DCs for flats so they will do nicely to replace the holey ones.

    May as well grab my self a pair for mooching about too at that price. Might look awful when they arrive (though I’m hopeful not) but even if they’re so bad I can’t wear them in public they’ll be perfect for the garage or post ride kit bag.

    If you Google DC shoes worn grey it’s a far better colour option IMHO.
    Cheers OP 2 pair’s for camping and whatever

    A pair incoming for the lad, sent him a link and he loves them!
    Cheers OP, for a teenager we find it difficult to get him shoes he likes. Great PSA.

    Anyone remember when DC used to be cool? 😉 Originally co-founded by the late great Ken Block!

    Thanks, but decided they’re only a bargain if I actually need them – a quick peak in the wardrobe tells me I don’t!

    You mean they’re not cool anymore!? 😱 Drats – hope the Vans I ordered as well are still cool or I’ll have to send both pairs back! 🙂

    sorry, I think you already know the answer 😃 Like most (all?) of the once great surf/skate/bmx brands, sold out to venture capitalists years ago, so deeply tragic 😉

    Plenty more styles going cheap, not a fan of the OP ones but have found some I like. Cheers!

    They used to be about £7 a pair for cheap black ones for PE when I was at primary school. 30 odd years ago.

    £2.99 round here. You were robbed.

    There’s blue ones on there too, if you want something slightly less ‘Archangel from Airwolf.’

    I was really tempted to add a skateboard to the basket last night – then I remembered it was 40yrs ago when I was last on one. And I don’t want to spend the next few months in plaster! 🤣🛹🦴

    I saw a video with some old fogies skating and it inspired me 😀

    I saw that earlier and had to rein myself in. The wife made me give my BMX away about 10 years ago as I always came home broken from the skatepark so a board was never going down well!!😀

    I saw it and was tempted then I remembered I was awful anyway so saved the landfill.

    Arrived today thank you op. Look much better in the flesh and will do grand for mooching once the weather clears up a bit

    What happened to the shape of DC shoes? They use to be wide. Now they look like Sideshow Bob shaped feet.

    They use to be wide.

    They’re usually OK to be fair. I’ve got wide feet and usually have a pair of DCs on the go, and have done for 30 years. Can’t say they’ve changed much. Don’t know what these plimsolls are like mind.
