A showcase of urban fashion, this NYC sneaker shop offers both rare and mainstream kicks

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — For Andrew Rosenthal, sneakers are a form of contemporary art. Calling collector-worthy shoes an important part of pop culture and a unique aspect of urban fashion, the Great Kills resident uses words like “iconic” and “aesthetically pleasing” to describe his kicks.

An expert in identifying hyperstrikes (a shoe with extremely limited quantities) and rare special project releases (those only made available at specific retailers), Rosenthal has spent the better part of a decade amassing an assortment of uncommon Air Jordan’s and other high profile shoes. And for the past two-and-a-half years, the budding entrepreneur has been sharing his sneaker passion with residents throughout the five boroughs.

“I think there is a big misconception surrounding the sneaker culture,” Rosenthal said recently from inside the stockroom of The Sole Broker, the Grant City shop he founded in 2019. “There are a lot of people who don’t think it’s

Christian Siriano offers mountain glam for 2nd pandemic show

NEW YORK (AP) — Christian Siriano opened his second show of the pandemic Thursday with two ladies in bed, models who emerged flawless in black one-pieces, then dressed for all to see before hitting the runway.

“If you take this away, and the glamour, then it’s like I’m just at the office talking about money all day, and that’s not what I want,” he told The Associated Press after the fall-winter show attended by about 75 in-person guests. “I wouldn’t want to do this job if

Kelly Dodd is Reportedly Bracing to Be Fired as RHOC Costar Elizabeth Offers Support Amid Positive Beverage Axing

Kelly Dodd reportedly knows she’ll be fired from The Real Housewives of Orange County and is bracing herself for the news as co-star Elizabeth Vargas offers the controversial star support.

When you compare Kelly’s behavior on season 15 of RHOC to previous seasons — except for the reunion — she was actually quite tame and not too controversial. However, her antics on social media and divisive behavior off-camera will likely force Bravo to snatch her orange away.

Amid the neverending controversy surrounding the reality star, a source says that Kelly is “expecting to be fired from the show,” though it hasn’t been confirmed just yet.

“Although she would love to stay on the show, she has come to terms with it,” the source told E! News. “She knows it’s coming.”

Kelly is apparently “standing by her opinions” according to the insider, and she feels like she’s being pushed out
