Since its foundation as Droors Clothing by Ken Block and Damon Way, DC Shoes has been one of the pinnacle growth stories in action sports. The brand has grown immensely since its inception, in part due to its unwavering dedication to supporting the activities it loves the most. This chiefly involves skateboarding, and the brand has continually maintained a decorated roster of the most prolific professional skaters in addition to other action sport athletes. Behind the scenes, DC also maintains a committed team of professional designers to push the envelope, and from Unilite to Super Suede technology, their efforts have been successful. Hypebeast Spaces got the opportunity to view DC’s headquarters in Huntington Beach, speaking with Ben Kelly, the skate category director, as well as Wes Kremer, Nyjah Huston, and Mike Mo Capaldi about their professional models. Enjoy.

So I heard this song for the first time last night and the lyrics caught me. I love it cause their talking the some stuff rappers do on their records. Florida-Georgia Line is the hottest new act to hit country music in a few years and they are going from newcomers to selling out clubs in minutes before our very eyes. The song is titled Get Your Shine On and fans can’t get enough of it. They will be getting a lot more fans on their fast rolling bandwagon through the year as well since they are traveling all over America opening up for Luke Bryan on tour. Enjoy.

In a recent appearance on Grantland, Jalen made a case that certain players, J.R. included, need to go out to the clubs. Sounds ridiculous but why don't you check out the video and hear him out. It may actually make some sense after all. Enjoy.

Forget the silly name — Pyragon? Really? This is a toy gun we're talking about here. Anyway, the Nerf Vortex Pyragon Blaster ($35 USD) looks to satisfy your — or your offspring's — insatiable thirst for more ammo. Thanks to an enormous magazine, this piece of plastic weaponry can fire off up to 40 discs without reloading, and offers a Slam-Fire handle that lets you fire off multiple rounds while you hold down the trigger. Probably not the best for covert missions, though — with an oil filter-like magazine, your co-workers are sure to see you coming.

Other features include enhanced Optical SteadyShot image stabilization, a 20.4 megapixel sensor, a Bionz image processor, built-in Wi-Fi, dedicated exposure compensation and P/A/S/M mode dials, and the ability to capture Full HD movies at 60p. Arriving in stores next month.
