Why Under Armour Collaborated With A$AP Rocky on a Skate Shoe

More than a year after rumors emerged, the Under Armour and A$ AP Rocky collaboration is finally available to purchase.
Officially named the AWGE x Under Armour SRLo, the sneaker will be sold today at an experiential pop-up in Harlem. The space, titled AWOL, which was created in partnership with AWGE, A$ AP Rocky’s creative agency, and Matte, a creative agency and production company, features four floors.
The basement is dedicated to retail, the first floor is a skate park, the second floor is an AWGE interactive space, and the third floor will host a rave. The shop exemplifies what influenced Rocky when developing the shoe with Dave Mayhew, a former pro skater who helped design the original Osiris D3 20 years ago with Brian Reid. The pop-up will be open to the public from 4 p.m. to midnight.
The skate category is a new world for Under Armour, but they lent Rocky complete creative freedom and tied the shoe back to performance by integrating its Hovr cushioning technology to make it light and comfortable. The shoe retails for $ 250, one of Under Armour’s most expensive price points, and comes in black along with a black-and-white colorway.
“Rocky is a creative force. He’s like a tornado that

Janelle Monáe, A$AP Rocky and Banksy Take to Walltime

VIRTUAL STREET STYLE: One of the Bowery’s busier corners, Houston Street, has a continually changing attraction thanks to the free app Wall time.
Banksy, Janelle Monáe and A$ AP Rocky are among the talent who have had their videos beamed on the wall there. Users can tune in remotely to watch it via live webcams and listen to synched soundtracks on iPhones. But Wall time can also be used to share Vimeo or YouTube videos on walls anywhere in the world. Live since January, the Wall time app is a new way to bring virtual content into a public space. Cofounder and chief executive officer Alex S. Vandoros said, “It adds what we believe is a new dimension to social media and audio visual content. Anybody can see anything on their iPhone. But there’s not really a platform out there that puts together virtual cloud-based content and actual walls — or other outdoor assets.”
Monáe’s new music video, “Pynk,” was teased last week downtown with a “sort of hush-hush release.” The app’s dual function allows people to listen to high-quality audio in synch with the projection. Not long ago while having dinner nearby at Cherche Midi, Atlantic Records executives happened to see A$ AP Rocky

Stallone to direct Rocky sequel Creed 2

Sylvester Stallone has announced he will be directing Creed 2, the latest film in the Rocky franchise.
Entertainment News – Latest Celebrity & Showbiz News | Sky News

ENTERTAINMENT SPECIALS:

John Avildsen, Oscar-Winning Director Of ‘Rocky,’ Dead At 81

(Reuters) – John Avildsen, the Oscar-winning director who made Hollywood’s quintessential underdog story in 1976 boxing saga “Rocky” with a then-unknown Sylvester Stallone, and crafted another inspiring tale in “The Karate Kid,” died on Friday at age 81, his family said.

Avildsen had been suffering pancreatic cancer at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, his son, Anthony, said by phone.

Avildsen won the Academy Award for best director for “Rocky” while the film was named best picture and other successes included the “The Karate Kid” series in the 1980s. He directed seven actors to Oscar nominations.

In the years before “Rocky,” Avildsen won praise for two dark character studies: “Joe” (1970) with Peter Boyle and Susan Sarandon and “Save the Tiger” (1973) starring Jack Lemmon, who won the Academy Award for best actor for the role.

He also had his share of career setbacks, directing some clunkers and being fired as director of 1970s classics “Saturday Night Fever” and “Serpico” because of disputes with producers.

“Rocky” proved to be as much of an underdog success story as the fictional Philadelphia boxer Rocky Balboa portrayed by Stallone, who wrote the screenplay. Stallone was an obscure actor at the time but stubbornly refused to allow studios to cast anyone but himself in the role. Producers Robert Chartoff and Irwin Winkler consented to let him take the role under Avildsen’s guidance.

“Rocky” was made for a modest $ 1 million and generated $ 225 million in ticket sales to became a cultural phenomenon, with a series of unforgettable characters and scenes and a blend of romance with pugilistic action.

The film centers on charismatic champion Apollo Creed, played by Carl Weathers, plucking Balboa, known as “The Italian Stallion,” from obscurity for a dream shot at the world heavyweight boxing title.

Rocky, who earns money as a collector for a loan shark, falls in love with the mousy Adrian (Talia Shire), the sister of his miserable friend Paulie (Burt Young), and gets help from a gruff trainer named Mickey (Burgess Meredith) who long felt Rocky had wasted his considerable potential.

Avildsen took the “Rocky” job only because funding fell through for another movie he was set to direct.

“My friend sent me this (”Rocky”) script and got me to read it,” Avildsen told the Birmingham, Alabama, News in 2000. “And on the third page, this guy is talking to his turtles, and I was hooked. It was a great character study.”

There were low expectations. “It had to be done in 28 days for less than a million bucks, and nobody bothered you because there was so little money involved,” Avildsen said. “There was no anticipation of it being anything but on the bottom bill of a drive-in in East Podunk.”

“Rocky” was nominated for 10 Oscars and won three. In accepting the Oscar for best director in March 1977, Avildsen told the audience, “I guess what ‘Rocky’ did was give a lot of people hope and there was never a better feeling than doing that.”

Avildsen’s professional stumbles included tangling with stars John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd on the comedy “Neighbors” (1981), then made the crass male-stripper movie “A Night in Heaven” (1983).

His next film, “The Karate Kid” in 1984, triumphed with an underdog theme similar to “Rocky” as a bullied teenager played by Ralph Macchio overcame the odds with the help of a wise martial arts master, played by Pat Morita. He also directed “Karate Kid” sequels in 1986 and 1989.

Avildsen returned to the “Rocky” franchise to direct the critically panned “Rocky V” (1990) about a protégé who turns on Rocky. Avildsen intended for the Rocky character to die in the film but studio bosses disagreed. “They told me James Bond doesn’t die. Superman doesn’t die. Rocky doesn’t die,” Avildsen told USA Today in 2014. “So Rocky didn’t die. But the movie died.” 

Avildsen also directed Burt Reynolds in the likable caper “W.W. and the Dixie Dancekings” (1975), George C. Scott and Marlon Brando in the thriller “The Formula” (1980), Morgan Freeman in school drama “Lean on Me” (1989) and the apartheid tale “The Power of One” (1992).

Avildsen was born on Dec. 21, 1935, in Oak Park, Illinois. After serving in the military, he made industrial films for companies and worked as an assistant to directors, including Otto Preminger before directing his first film in 1969, “Turn On to Love.”

“Rocky Mountain Guy”

By Jerry Zezima

I have long been told, by people too numerous to mention, including members of my own family, to take a hike. But because of the rarefied air between my ears, I waited until a recent trip to the Rocky Mountains to take them up — way up — on their suggestion.

My initial ascent of a slope high enough to let me see what flight attendants were serving on passing airplanes was made during a long weekend in Granby, Colo., a picturesque town that is about 8,000 feet above sea level. Considering I am 6 feet tall and live close to the shore, it is 7,994 feet higher than what I am used to.

Accompanying me on this exhausting excursion were my wife, Sue; our daughters, Katie and Lauren; Katie’s husband, Dave; and our niece Ashley. All are in better shape than I am. So are some dead people, but I didn’t want to join them by falling off a cliff or being eaten by a mountain lion.

The first hikers we encountered on the trail were three young children, two women who apparently were their mothers and a white-haired lady whose age, I would estimate, was 112. She had a walking stick.

“Good morning!” she chirped as we tramped by. “Are you enjoying your hike?”

“This is my first one,” I told her.

The lady looked at my ratty sneakers, worn sweatpants, “I Love Garlic” T-shirt and bloodshot eyes and said, “I hope you don’t have trouble with the altitude.”

“I’m naturally lightheaded,” I replied, “so it doesn’t bother me.”

What did bother me was the prospect of being attacked by any number of ferocious fauna, including but not limited to Bigfoot.

“What happens if we encounter a bear?” Sue asked.

“It would be pretty grizzly,” I said.

To which Ashley responded, “Good one!”

Then there were beavers, which came to my boggled mind when we passed a stream that had been dammed by the industrious rodents.

“Last year,” I recalled, “a fisherman in Europe was killed by a berserk beaver.”

Dave saw the bright side when he pointed to the sparkling water and said, “Every delicious ounce of Coors Light starts right here.”

I could have used a beer because I was hot on the trail (of what, I wasn’t sure), but all I had was a bottle of water, and it was warm.

As we made our way up the steep grade (I was expecting my grade to be F, which would have stood for “fainted”), I actually felt invigorated.

“You’re doing very well,” Katie said with a touch of astonishment.

“I thought you would have keeled over by now,” Lauren added optimistically.

Aside from a couple of brief rest stops, we made a beeline (and did not, fortunately, get stung by bees) to the top of the trail, where I beheld two wondrous sights: a waterfall and a lawyer.

The former was not exactly Niagara Falls, though I did approach it step by step, inch by inch, but the latter was exactly what I didn’t expect to see.

“You think you can get away from us,” said Patrick Fitz-Gerald, an attorney from Denver. “But we’re everywhere.”

He was hiking with his wife, Katie; their daughter, Larkin, 3; and their golden retriever, Buddy, 7, who Patrick said is on the cover of the paperback edition of the best-selling Garth Stein novel, “Racing in the Rain.”

When Patrick told me that he used to be a journalist but quit to become a lawyer, I said, “You finally found honest work.”

“If you get hurt on the trail and need representation,” Patrick said, “call me.”

Except for a scratch on my middle finger, which I was too polite to show him, I didn’t get hurt at all. On the way down, which admittedly was a lot easier than going up, I told our merry band that I had a terrific time on my first hike.

“I guess,” said Lauren, speaking for everyone, “you’re not over the hill after all.”

Rocky Boots Men’s 4187 Rocky Ride Expansion Fit Cowboy Boots

Rocky Boots Men’s 4187 Rocky Ride Expansion Fit Cowboy Boots


You don’t have to ride a horse to be a cowboy, you know. If you’ve got a strong work ethic, and the right footwear, you can be a cowboy whenever you like. It’s just much easier when you have these Rocky 4187 Brown 11-Inch Rocky Ride Men’s Western Boots. Distressed embellished shafts, rocker heels and square toes give these Western boots a classic look. The 11-inch design of these Rocky boots is tall and stylish from top to bottom, with finger holes and pull straps that make it easy for you to get into them. Soft leather construction makes them easy to wear. These cowboy boots are embellished with fancy stitching and techniques, but they don’t even need it. Full-grain leather is the only embellishment that really matters to your feet. The material of these Rocky Ride boots is supple and pliant, so flexible it stays that way even in wet and cold conditions. Full-grain can handle being in wet and cold conditions because it’s naturally repellent to moisture, wind, and even wear. A dipped topline finishes off the distinct style of these Expansion boots. The topline is just that, the top (or collar) of the boots. The Expansion Fit seam expands to give you more room as needed, making it easy for you to take your work boots on and off. Once they’re on, you’ll be resting on the softness of Ride footbeds, made with soft EVA foam. Arch stabilizers are built into the footbeds to keep arches lifted and provide support. The shock-absorbing heels in the footbeds take the sting out of steps where you hit the ground the hardest. Tricot lining surrounds steps. The dark brown, knitted material is soft and lightweight to create a luxurious interior for your feet. Your feet need softness and comfort, but they need support as well. That’s why steel shanks are added to keep your arches lifted when you wear these Ride boots. This prevents muscle fatigue and pain. Ride Western outsoles add more support to the design. Made with shock-resistant rubber, the soles are rugged and oil-resistant to stand up to tough corrosive. Repairable Goodyear welt construction is used to attach the soles. The stitching is made with moisture-resistant waxed thread that allows the soles to be replaced as needed.Made with a non-marking, slip-resistant tread, the soles of these Rocky boots keep your steps steady wherever you go. Ride rocker heels add extra lift to give you better support on ladder rungs. The heels complete the classic cowboy look, too. Dura-Red technology keeps the outsoles highly flexible and comfortable. Even cowboys have to protect their feet. Keep yours safe and stylish with Rocky 4187 Brown 11-Inch Rocky Ride Men’s Western Slip-Resistant Boots. Manufactured sizes: Medium: 8-12, 13 | Wide: 8-12, 13
