Droors Clothing, the original namesake of the “D” and “C” in “DC Shoes”, was a force to be reckoned with throughout the ’90s and early ’00s.
Droors began as Eight Ball in 1992, started by Ken Block and Damon Way, before quickly transitioning to Droors (props to whoever made that call). Boasting ranks comprised of a who’s-who of the era, Droors riders included everyone from Matt Hensley to Rob G to Dill to Pat Duffy to fucking Kareem Campbell. They were the clothing brand of the late ’90s, and have been sorely missed up until an out-of-nowhere re-introduction at Agenda 2017.
With so much excitement and mystery surrounding the brand, we reached out to DC’s Global Skate Director Mark Regimbal for an official comment. Here’s what he had to say:
“The response to the Droors capsule was overwhelming and exceeded all our expectations. We look forward to sharing more from the brand in the near future. Droors represents a special time in skateboarding. We want to honor its legacy and make sure anything we do is done right and in line with the brand’s heritage.”
We asked Mark about the official release date of Droors Clothing and it is still yet to be determined, so stay up to date with us as developments come to light.
