If a skate shoe is light, surely it can't be that protective, right? Wrong. The P-Rod 5 is the proof. Resilient Lunarlon cushioning in the outsole reduces heel bruising when a gap attack goes wrong, a single leather upper with no-sew technology means the shoe isn't bogged down with heavy layers and it doesn't chafe when you're popping tricks. The foam sock liner rounds it all off – it moulds to the shape of your foot, ensuring you're super comfortable whether pushing or walking.

This streamlined, lightweight offering from DC represents a welcome departure from the big, clumpy skate shoes they used to make. Pairing the sleek upper with a thick, hard-wearing sole gives it a responsive feel without compromising on durability or impact protection. It looks great too and will easily double up as a stylish casual shoe for who can't handle the slams but like the skate look.

The first thing you’ll notice when wearing the Cero High is just how comfy it is thanks to a soft, springy sole that lessens the impact of heavy landings, and ankle padding that helps prevent painful ankle rolls. A durable shoe on the whole that, thanks to thick suede-like material and metal eyelets around the lace holes, will take a lot of board scraps to get down to your toes.
