A generation spoiled by technology just got even more lucky in 2013. Sure, there’s Lunarlon, Sprintweb, and other tech out there, keeping sneakers lightweight, comfortable, and secure.

BRONX NEWS: New Bronx court program aimed at helping veterans


The Bronx Hall of Justice is introducing a program designed to help military veterans facing felony charges avoid jail time.


The Bronx Veterans’ Treatment Court is being modeled after specialty drug and mental health programs that work with defendants and the District Attorney’s office to find counseling and treatment alternatives.


“Research continues to draw a link between substance abuse and combat–related mental illness,” said Siobhan Morris, the Veterans Justice Outreach Coordinator at the James J. Peters VA Medical Center in Kingsbridge.


“Left untreated, mental health disorders common among veterans can directly lead to involvement in the criminal justice system,” said Morris.


Nationwide the number of veterans receiving mental health care from the U.S. Dept. of Veterans Affairs increased 34% from 2006-2010, with 1,203,530 receiving treatment in 2010 alone, according to the U.S. Government Accountability Office.


“We should have some way to recognize their service, to take that into account,” said Bronx Supreme Court Justice Leonard Livote.


The 60-year-old Queens native knows a thing or two about service: he retired as a Colonel from the Army Reserve in 2011, after serving for 27 years.


Livote will oversee the program as the presiding judge of the special court in addition to his work as a trial judge.


Working with the Bronx County District Attorney’s office, Livote has already started four cases this summer and will see 22 more next month. The program will be officially unveiled Monday.


The majority of cases will be drug offences or other low-level, non-violent felony charges, according to the judge.


“The beauty is that this is small,” Livote said of the program. “I have the luxury of giving people time,”


In addition to treatment, a key component of the specialty court will be the assignment of additional veterans to act as court mentors to the defendants.


The volunteers are meant to help keep participants on track with treatment and offer a helping hand from someone familiar with their circumstances.


“Veterans respond favorably to this structured environment given their past experiences in the Armed Forces,” Morris said of the program.


Brooklyn and Queens currently have similar veterans’ court models that were started in 2010.


If successful, Livote would like to see the Bronx program expanded.


“This is my chance to give back,” he said. “It is something that was lacking in the Bronx.”

Mark McNairy x adidas Rod Laver “84-Lab”

mark mcnairy adidas rod laver 84 lab Mark McNairy x adidas Rod Laver 84 Lab

The adidas Rod Laver is known as being one of the most famous shoes from The Brand with the Three Stripes, perhaps the most popular one that doesn’t actually have any Stripes of its own.  From this foundation of subtly applied branding, there’s nowhere to fit a ‘McNasty’ gold leaf, so this pair of Mark McNairy x adidas Rod Lavers from the 84-Lab collection keeps its personalized touches to the tongue and heel.  This is otherwise a classic take on the Laver lowtop, save the use of yellow in place of green as with the OG edition.  It’s a subtle change yet one that almost certainly wouldn’t have been tolerated by the officials whose traditions essentially forced the original colorway to look as it did, and that’s the kind of subtle brilliance that makes these new McNairy adidas a must have from shops like Oneness.

BODEGA x Reebok Classic Leather Lux – “U.S.B.D.G.A.” | Release Reminder


bodrga x reebok classic leather lux usbdga 02 BODEGA x Reebok Classic Leather Lux   U.S.B.D.G.A. | Release Reminder




Immersed in a good dose of militarism and tradition, the design team over at BODEGA, the Boston area retailer, reconstituted the Reebok Classic Leather Lux into something which they called “U.S.B.D.G.A.” Featuring a rugged canvas upper in the old “chocolate chip” desert camouflage at mid-foot, the perforated suede toe-box in mustard yellow covers the front while a suede heel cup, this time in peanut butter colorway, covers the rear. With both heel tabs feature tri-color stripes found similarly on military uniforms, an imprint of BODEGA’s fictitious “Killer Bee Stingers” spec-ops team patch in on left insole while the store’s “B” insignia is on the right. To complete the design concept, the sneakers include a royal blue lining, an off-white mid-sole and gum rubber outsole.

Comes with an extra pair of red laces as well as a matching t-shirt printed with a “Bee” pin-up girl, a military aviation tradition before a government issued decree in 1993 to have gender-neutral decoration instead, the BODEGA x Reebok Classic Leather Lux “U.S.B.D.G.A.” will be available in a few hours at Midnight Tonight exclusively through BODEGA.
