DQM will be releasing its Spring 15 footwear collection in collaboration with Vans next Thursday, March 19th. Made exclusively for DQM, the shoes are inspired by the brownstone row houses of New York and the North East. The history of brownstones, specifically in New York and in the shape of neighborhoods such Harlem and Park Slope in Brooklyn, has a long and celebrated past. Images of tall front stoops, curved entranceways and terraced homes in hues of red, gray and brown, conjures up a lifestyle of days gone by. Featured in hundreds of films by directors from Woody Allen to Spike Lee, brownstone buildings have become an icon, an architectural identifier, of the city.
To make way for our new Spring 2015 collection, DQM will be holding its annual warehouse and sample sale, this Saturday 21st through Tuesday 24th February. 40-80% off samples and past season DQM, HUF, Nike Tier 0, Nike SB, Adidas Skateboarding, Converse, Quiet Life, Hall of Fame, Poler, Bronze, Herschel, Levis, Fourstar and much, much more, including some special deadstock items from our eleven year old archives.

The highly anticipated Nike Free SB is scheduled to be released Friday, December 26th. This new style marks Nike SB’s most technologically advanced sneaker in their skateboarding line to date.
