If we told you that DC Shoes was doing a collaboration with a famous resident of New York’s Rivington St., you’d probably assume it was ALIFE and/or their Rivington Club. ALIFE is no doubt a great teammate when it comes to designing sneakers, but this time, it’s actually the Hotel on Rivington lending its touch to DC Shoes’ Life Collection.
This newest Admiral looks a whole lot like DC’s duet with Atlanta’s Standard. Almost too much. In fact, the only difference we can see is that the Standard joints used hunter green laces to mimic the turf on their new Lenox Square store’s astroturf floor. It’s also possible that these are a deeper red than the Standard version, but that depends alot on the lighting. The undeniably unique twist to these is that the Hotel’s staff will be rocking these all summer. Take a look at the photos of both and let us know what you think.
