Shoe of the Week : DVS Quentin

Company : DVS
Skater : Kerry Getz
Weight : 10oz.
Construction : Clean one piece suede toe construction prevents stitch blowouts. Die cut EVA midsole for added comfort. Molded EVA footbed for a smooth ride. Herringbone tread for maximum grip. This shoe is one of the many new trend of shoes that are modern cupsoles that skate like vulcs. DVS may be trying to rebrand and be trying to recapture the northeast market by adding an east coast legend like Kerry to their team but they have never stopped making solid shoes designed to last and to skate awesome. As many of you know the guys at DVS have been generous enough to hook up a couple of our young local rippers like The Shack's own Matt Giovanni so lets hope that combined with the presence of Kerry combines to help put DVS back on the map and helps them navigate the seemingly impossible skate shoe market that is becoming more and more dominated by non skateboarding companies. Support skateboarding brands, support east coast skaters, and support local studs and come by The Shack and try a pair of these new Quentins. Now enjoy an east coast og in a part for one of the east coast's og shops videos.

Deck of the Week : Lurkville Laser Monster Team Board

Company : Lurkville
Skater : Lets just go with Dolan Stearns
Width : 8.5
Construction : 100% Made in the USA wood from Quincy Woodrights. If you don't know about Lurkville then do yourself a favor and spend a few minutes watching some videos on their youtube page. There retro graphics combined with top of the line wood, combined with a team full of dudes who turn gritty pavement and seemingly unskateable features into their own personal playground make Lurkville one of the Shack's new instant favorite brands. Now watch Dolan Stearns get it done and see for yourself why these will definitely have a place on the deck wall moving forward.
