Likewise, Trase is a whorl-bowl of jam. Neapolitans define it as “to enter a place.” Latvians describe it as a “route or a track.” Haitian Creoles define it as “to draw.” Together, these definitions tell us that DC Trase Shoes are an art pair that transcend you to the thrill-packed skating arena.

From the rest of Asia, a pool of 276 creative Filipino submissions were generated. Ten finalists. Team Manila Creative Director and Owner Jowee Alviar, TBWA/SMP Tequilla’s Marci Reyes, DC Rider and Architecture Student Lornel Bihasa were the judges to the artistry that was about to unfold.
