Introduced as part of the first-ever DC TeamWorks Collection back in 2009 by brand founder Ken Block, the Spartan High WC is a high-cut performance shoe with crossover appeal. The Spartan High is available now at Eastbay in an all-new colorway.
The Block Spartan High features a durable action leather upper with thick padding in the tongue and collar for additional support. Perforations in the toebox and a mesh tongue keep the shoe ventilated, while hidden elastic straps keep the tongue secure. Protective lace guards are put in place to extend the life of your laces. The sole, which appears to be vulcanized, is actually cupsole constructed with a rubber wrap. Below sits an abrasion-resistant rubber outsole with DC’s trademark pill-pattern traction.
Done in Block’s signature colorway, soft lime green leather takes care of the upper on this particular pair, with drip detailing on the side panels. Grey hits the lace eyelets, inner lining, tongue and heel. The midsole is finished off with a gum rubber underside. Other details include the Huck Gee Skull Logo and Block’s number 34 on the heel.
