DC Shoes Drops BMX Program 18

DC Shoes Drops BMX ProgramHuge bummer here - DC Shoes has dropped their entire BMX program. This leaves Chris Doyle, Corey Bohan, Edwin Delarosa, Rob Wise, Hucker, Brett Banasiewicz, Anthony Napolitan, Jeremiah Smith, Kelly Bolton, Biz, Alfredo Mancuso, Dylan Stark, Broc Raiford, and Stevie Churchill without a shoe sponsor.

Many riders who were a part of the program took to Twitter to voice their thoughts -

This definitely sucks for BMX, but we'll get through it. BMX has been hit with much worse and bounced back stronger than ever. Ride your bike, have fun, and ignore that a corporate world exists!

Also, huge shout out to Vans, Nike, Osiris, Etnies, iPath, Lotek, and Almond for supporting BMX!

    Well it looks like I will never give my money to DC or Quicksilver. The upside is that companies that don't care about BMX are out of the community. We don't need them if they aren't down for the cause.

    After this news, I think the DC shoes will lose many customers ...

    Nowdays you see more preppy assholes wearing dc than bikers or skaters for that matter. They sold out awhile back now the quality is shit & they are available at almost all major department stores. if you have a pair of dcs with impact systems take out the sole & look, there isn't shit there..used to have a round thick gel thing (impact system for your heel) inserted in the sole, now they just say impact system... False advertisement. Danscomp other mailorder companies & local shops should boycott them.

    Never liked DC to begin with. They always had ugly bulky-ass shoes anyway. This just reconfirms how shitty of a brand they are to drop an entire bmx program even though they makes tons of money.
