The brand was founded in 2002 in Philadelphia on the initiative of Stevie Williams. The name of DGK, or rather Dirty Ghetto Kids, comes from a graffiti crew known in Philadelphia. In mid-2004, Stevie left the ranks of DC, which allowed for new forms of promotion. As a result of cooperation with Reebok, the RBK / DGK "Workout" line of skateboarding shoes was created. DGK is part of the Kayo Corporation together with Organika, Expedition One and Gold Wheels. DGK offers interesting artwork referring to street culture, characterised by exceptional quality and durability.
