DC Shoes has perfect timing with the arrival of the latest Robbie Maddison edition of the DC Shoes Command. The Australian Moto X daredevil is headed to Los Angeles later this week with new goals and aspirations that will surely awe the crowds. Robbie will get his first shot at competing in the RallyCross and Rally Car Racing events at X-Games 17. According to ESPN, Robbie is planning on doubling up on last year’s Volt, which netted him a silver medal. The double Volt would mean he’ll rotate his body two 360 degree spins on the side of the bike while flying hundreds of feet in the air.
Robbie’s latest makeup from DC Shoes is equipped for action with ImpactFX midsole air cushioning and an extra padding in the collar and tongue. The classic DC style reinvented for more comfort and impact absorption features the easily recognizable DC Shoes logo across the heel area with crazy graphics filling the logo, while on the tongue tag resides Robbie’s signature. We can’t help but wonder if the graphics represent the high-flying history of Robbie Maddison.
