I own the DC Apaches in black/ white. They look good with pretty much any clothing you wear. As for skating, its a good shoe. The footbed seems to mold to the shape of your foot, which is cool in my opinion. When I'm skating the shoe doesnt have much board feel (at least compared to the Circa CX205)
The DGT rubber stuff helps keep me on the board on sketchy landings. But what I really don't like is the heel material. If you tend to wear away the sole of your shoe at the heel first then you might not like this shoe. About 3 weeks into wearing these, the heel started showing signs of wear-and-tear, and I didn't really do much to the shoe. Overall its a good shoe, but missing some key features.
