Tony Hawk skate the White House....

When I was a kid, my parents must have told me 1,000 times to not skate in the house. Today, 20 years later, President Obama invited Tony Hawk to the White House. Of course, what’s the first thing Tony did?

First black president? That’s old news. First person to skate down the White House grand foyer: Tony Hawk. Times are changing, folks.

Hawk took a brief ride Friday in the White House's grand foyer and the nearby Old Executive Office Building. He had the permission of White House officials, and he posted photos and Twitter accounts on his Web site.

Hawk later joined other dads, athletes and celebrities at a Father's Day forum hosted by President Barack Obama.

Celebrity chef Bobby Flay helped man the barbecue grills for a White House picnic for the attendees.

Van Halen Files Lawsuit Against Nike

WWD reports on a cause of action for copyright infringement suit filed against Nike by the Van Halen rocker’s company, ELVH Inc.

“ELVH alleges that the design of certain Nike Dunk Low styles infringe on the copyright the company holds for the red-white-and-black-striped pattern Van Halen made famous on his “Frankenstein” guitar — and for which the musician has held the copyright since 2001.

Citing “irreparable harm and damage,” ELVH is asking for the impoundment and destruction of all the shoes in question, as well as all profits from the sale of the shoes and damages.

In a statement provided to FN by a brand spokesperson, Nike said it was aware of the lawsuit but did not believe it to have merit. “Based on the information provided to us, we have not infringed on any rights held by Mr. Van Halen,” it said. “Nike’s Dunk shoe design is not substantially similar to any of the Van Halen designs, and Nike has not referenced the ‘Van Halen’ name or image as part of any marketing campaign or promotional material associated with the shoe.”

Concepts x Blue Lobster Nike SB Dunk Low Premium

The Blue Lobster Dunk serves as the sequel to last summer’s original Lobster Dunk, a Nike SB that first made waves on May 31, 2008. The first “Lobster” was shipped and promoted by the “Concepts Fishing Company,” and came equipped with a poster, lobster claw rubber band, tee shirt and condiment box (replete with lobster shell cracker, fork, bib, wet nap and “butter” shoelaces) all embossed with the “Concepts Fishing Company” logo. The first 50 pairs sold were available in ultra-limited edition packaging, with all of the above-mentioned bundled up in an authentic Concepts wooden lobster trap.

Priced at $250.00 usd, the actual Blue Lobster sneaker will be bagged, tagged and sealed in a HAZMAT foam container. Each pair will be joined by an official Nike SB tee shirt, hang tag and lace lock. The first 200 pairs will come with 1 of 2 Concepts x Alien Workshop skate decks.

On June 20, while in line to pick up the Blue Lobster, Concepts will also be raffling off a pair of the original Lobster from 2008. Raffle tickets will be sold for $10 each and the drawing will be held immediately following the release.

After the launch of the Blue Lobster, Concepts will host the Official Blue Lobster Party, featuring a number of special guests and performers including DJ Statik Selektah, Termanology and Masspike Miles.

adidas The Complete Ride: Bianchi x adidas Zeitfrei

bianchi-adidas-the-complete-ride-zeitfrei-1-540x360 adidas The Complete Ride: Bianchi x adidas Zeitfrei
The third and final installment in adidas’ The Complete Ride footwear program is another Zeitfrei shoe, this time in collaboration with world-acclaimed Italian bicycle manufacturer Bianchi. Having provided matching bikes for the previous Zeitfrei drops with sneaker and street-culture mavens Hypebeast and Solebox, Bianchi chose a grey suede upper for their model with the iconic Bianchi Celeste color highlighting the foxing stripe, top eyelet and tongue. Overall this is our favorite colorway of the bunch, unfortunately, only about 10 pairs were produced with no plans for a public release. These fall under the woulda', coulda', shoulda' category.
