The DC x Bronze56k Lukoda
The shoes created for the collab, the DC x Bronze56k Lukoda, were released in two colorways. The colorways selected for the collab include a navy/white pair as well as a green/brown pair.
I can’t say that these shoes are personally my style. But I have never been one to rock a bulkier shoe like the ones pictured above. The DC x Bronze Lukoda definitely stays true to the classic vintage look that DC Shoes is known for.
Although I wouldn’t rock these shoes myself, that doesn’t necessarily mean they aren’t worth getting. DC x Bronze56k dropped a video showcasing team riders looking fresh in the shoe will skating the streets. Watch the promo for the shoes below.
The skaters in the video such as John Shanhanz have a dope old-school style that fits well with the kicks. Along with the DC x Bronze56k Lukoda, the collab including a couple of t-shirts and a backpack. The t-shirts showcase the drawn-out design of the shoes in a couple of colors.
Palace Skateboards always brings a great vibe, so it’s nice to see Bronze 56k continuing the trend. Along with this collab, Bronze 56k recently donated $7,000 in profits from sales to a range of organizations that are active in the fight against police brutality. It is nice to see companies stepping up and attempting to help in the fight against racial injustice. Plus the DC x Bronze56k Lukoda brings a unique take to shoes, that could be a good look for a person with some vintage flair.
