To start things off, DC Shoes has been established since 1994 and has been committed to progressing game-changing skate sneaker designs to support the most ground-breaking skateboarders, snowboarders and artists in the world. DC Shoes helped shape modern collaboration culture by pioneering partnerships with the like of Supreme, FTP, Shepard Fairey, Buscemi, Doublet and Carrots.
DC Shoes teamed up with Marvel for a crazy Deadpool collection. The DC Shoes x Marvel Deadpool collection has a huge range of footwear and apparel; the collection combines the excitement surrounding the beloved character with vintage art from the original comic books.
True to form, Deadpool breaks the fourth wall within the collection — with custom quotes and artwork poking fun at himself and DC Shoes. From the box art and tissue paper to the chimichanga references, the fine details of the collections are bound to excite casual fans and collectors alike.
The hero of the collection is the Manteca, which features a distressed waxed canvas to replicate Deadpool’s iconic red and black suit. Another standout is the Manual Hi with a digital print featuring original Deadpool comic book art from 1994, the same year that DC Shoes launched as a brand. The collection is rounded out by a range of DC Shoes’ best-selling Essential styles and wearable apparel staples for adults.
To align with the global release, DC Shoes and Marvel created a custom comic book where Deadpool travels back to 1994 and links up with DC Shoes team members Josh Kalis, Ken Block, Danny Way, Mike Blabac and Wes Kremer. Although not for sale, 5,000 copies of the comic will be distributed globally through giveaways, partnerships and seeding.
