DC Links up with Baker Skateboards to Release Exclusive Capsule Collection

Today, DC Shoes unveils its spring 17 capsule collection with Baker Skateboards that pays homage to both brands’ California-bred roots. With mutual team riders, Cyril Jackson and Tristan “T-Funk” Funkhouser, the DC x Baker collaboration features apparel pieces, footwear and accessories with Baker’s classic logo stylized for the collab. Get a closer look at collection here:

Run by Cyril and T-Funk, the collection features DC’s classic Trase Slip-On – a no nonsense skate shoe with the Baker Skateboards logo incorporated throughout. The Trase is packed with slip-on comfort, rubber toecap for added durability and iconic Baker branding, adding style like only they can.

"Skateboarding is about diversity, and there is a lot of that going on between CJ and T-Funk, as well as Baker and DC. When you combine the influences of two completely different things, the end result is usually something fun and refreshing," said DC Shoes’ Skate Team Manager, Jimmy Astleford.

In addition, the collection offers DC x Baker apparel pieces and accessories including co-branded tees, a lightweight anorak and snapbacks available in Baker’s signature colorways.
