Odessa‘s Web site is officially up and running, odessadirect.com.
For Spring 2005, DVS is introducing Bruise Control technology. The concept behind Bruise Control is to customize the cushioning of the shoe depending on the type of terrain that is being skated.
Bruise Control comes in two different types of densities, soft (Gel) and super soft (Foam). The Detech Soft Gel pad protects the feet from even the hardest of impacts. The STS Super Soft Foam protects from the slightest of impacts.
To sum it all up, the Super Soft Foam is for lower impact skateboarding. The Soft Gel is for somebody looking for a sponsor. The Bruise Control pads come in numerous colors to match your daily attire—choose your cushion for your pushin’.
