Shintaro and Masaki Hongo may be young (just 22 and 19, respectively), but they’ve been part of the DC family for years. Wes Kremer personally helped get both brothers on the program, and the Hongo is just starting to take off. When they’re not traveling the globe and churning out footage at an alarming rate, they’re absolutely destroying their hometown park in Yokosuka, Japan. While Shintaro joined WKND and earned a place on the highly-coveted Thrasher Am Scramble trip last year, Masaki rides for SK8MAFIA and has been filming all over the globe. We’re proud to give the Hongo Brothers the first pro colorway of the all-new Metric S. It just might be the most technical skate shoe we’ve ever made, so we couldn’t think of anyone better to help us roll it out. The limited Hongo Bros Metric features their family crest on the heel and artwork by Shintaro on the tongue. To celebrate, Shin and Masaki grabbed some of the first pairs ever produced and headed to SF to film a quick VX edit. Check it out and enjoy!
