Persue first discovered his penchant for graffiti in the late ‘80s, and was given creative praise by DC Shoes. Damon Way brought Persue onto their company early in his career as an illustrator, and he designed the first logo for DC in the ‘90s. Fast forward to present day, DC Shoes is proud to support this fresh artistic perspective from alumni, Persue, as their brand phrase “Yours For The Taking” encourages the creative expression and unbreakable pursuit at play here.
"You make a mark by making sacrifices and believing in what you do."
Rooted in art and creativity from day one, DC led the cultural initiative as a street brand to collaborate with artists. Shepard Fairey, KAWS, and Aaron Rose were all a part of DC’s pioneering movement of translating artwork into footwear. Now with Persue embarking on this creative exploration of colliding art with street in WET PAINT, DC is there every step of the way to support his new influence on the future generation.
