3. Familia x DC Tonik S
DC was kind of quiet for a while, but a few years ago, it put together a new team of heavy hitters. Among them was Davis Torgerson, a Minnesota native who gained a lot of notice on Real. It made sense that last year the brand connected with Familia, a shop that’s synonymous with the Minneapolis skate scene, to release a special edition of the Tonik S. The Familia logo on the heel looked dope, but if anything, this shoe served as yet another reminder that local shops matter more than ever.
