The Pure XE shoes by DC feature a heavy duty suede and leather upper for durability and abrasion resistance, a perforated upper panel for improved ventilation, and a foam padded tongue and collar for added comfort and support. Internal elastic tongue holders add stability and help maintain upper integrity, a performance TPR wrap cup sole provides function with a vulcanized cosmetic design, and DC Dynamic Grip Technology (DGT) ensures supreme grip and control.
What is Dynamic Grip Technology (DGT)? DGT is the combination of sole material that accounts for the various wear rates and functionality of each sole section. There is soft rubber in the toe and Ollie areas because that's where the gripping and control matters most. There is medium-durometer rubber in the traction section for longer, yet grippy, wear. Finally, hard rubber is located in the durability section to make the shoe more wear resistant.
What is TPR? Thermoplastic Rubber - a lightweight, durable combination of plastic and rubber.
