DC has teamed up with the Hotel on Rivington in New York yet again for a limited edition of the DC LIFE Admiral Sport. Produced exclusively for the hotel staff, This is the fourth time DC has laced the staff with shoes from the DC LIFE Collection (Sector 7, Dress Sneaker, Admiral and now the Admiral Sport). The model has been customized with a laser etch of “HOTEL ON RIVINGTON” on the outsole, a design treatment that pays homage to the iconic side-wall bold DCSHOECOUSA lettering on the classic DC LYNX skate model that originally launched just over a decade ago now. The First release of the LYNX was in 1998 along with the announcement of Josh Kalis joining the team. A special red strap, a key color from the hotel, completes the custom shoe. A luxury boutique hotel, the Hotel on Rivington collaborates with international cutting-edge designers to celebrate creative energy and create a venue from which the world can experience all of downtown Manhattan. The DC LIFE Admiral Sport for Hotel on Rivington compliments the staff’s Ted Baker London apparel. The Admiral Sport is part of the Spring 2010 DC LIFE Collection and will be available beginning in January 2010 at select DC LIFE retailers and the DC Online Store CLICK HERE FOR WEBSITE

The New York Yankees became the 2009 Amercian League Champions last night and are once again going to The World Series this year after a five year drought. It wasn’t easy getting past the Los Angeles Angels but now they have the opportunity to face last year’s defending champion Philadelphia Phillies. Congratulations to the Yankees on winning their 40th pennant, the most by any baseball franchise. The World Series starts on Wednesday and I pick the Yankees to win in 6 games. Here’s 27 pictures of yesterday’s win, Enjoy…. Let’s Go Yankees!!!!
Taking a break from the Rivalry Pack Nike Air Force 1 releases, Nike is set to release the Black/White/Red/Gum Nike Air Force 1 Low in November.

Like the Air Force 1s from the Rivalry Pack, the Black/White/Red/Gum Nike Air Force 1 Low features a 0.44 sticky rubber outsole.
I heard this happened yesterday via twitter but I saw the video today when my boy Bri-G posted it on his blog Revenge Of Rob Gordon. This is worse than I thought, what I want to know is who was the bright light bulb that thought it would be a good idea to put OJ Da Juiceman on stage at BB Kings with the likes of Raekwon & Styles P????. This is what happens when you attempt to force music down an audience that clearly is not having it. Shouts to Green Lantern and Miss Info who tried to diffuse the situation in vain. I spin at clubs & radio and I do play OJ Da Juiceman’s music but there is a time and a place for it; and last night was clearly not it the place for OJ to perform. Record company promoters stop playing yourselves by forcing things that will not work. PAY ATTENTION to your audience so you don’t get barked at by your artist for putting them in an awkward situations….
The Air Royal is a premium hi top taking its cue from the Jordan 1/Dunk. Premium leather perf toe box, perforated swoosh, stitched leather midsole panel and toanl/contrast stitching give the shoe a strong sense of premium form. The eyelet nuts and lace give the shoe a workboot aesthetic. CLICK HERE
