DC Shoes and X-girl are bringing it for the girls this summer in their first ever sneaker collaboration. Not one, but two styles of the women’s E. Tribeka are set to release exclusively in Japan this August. Since the X-girl steez has always been to take inspiration from the guys and make it into your own thing, the E. Tribeka has been updated with a chunky platform sole. A holographic and white version pays tribute to the era from which the brand originates, and it’s freshly relevant for current streetstyle culture. Leaning towards a more everyday, everywhere shoe, there’s a blacked-out suede style with purple branding and a lower sole.
Founded in 1993 by Sonic Youth co-singer and guitarist, Kim Gordon, and friend and stylist, Daisy von Furth. X-girl was birthed at a time when girl power and feminism was rightly having a moment. This movement grew even more powerful throughout Gordon and von Furth’s run of overseeing X-girl. The brand represented a group of females who pushed back against stereotypical gender roles, mainstream marketing, and popular opinion.
