For the 3rd season in a row, DC is doing a collabo with the action sports world’s favorite NYC hotel, the Hotel on Rivington. All bellstaff will be rocking the DC Life Admiral in red all summer. A full grain leather and suede hi-top with square perforated accents, the Admiral matches the hotel’s lobby carpet and was picked to go with the staff’s Ted Baker London uniforms.
