Los Angeles, CA - Aug 15, 2007 - Music producer, Benny Da Kidd (myspace.com/bennydakidd), to appear in the Fall 2007 ad campaign that marks the first ever signature footwear collection inspired by the King of Rock 'N' Roll. The Elvis Shoes "Future Rock Royalty" ad campaign embodies the spirit of personal creativity and self-expression inherent to the King of Rock 'N' Roll and the Elvis Shoes collection.

A Durham native and Hillside graduate, Benny Da Kidd (born Benjamin Jay Rogers) is the son of Durham residents Randal and Gracie Rogers. He is a rising senior majoring in marketing at Winston Salem State University and a member of Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity.

The ads will begin appearing in various trade and lifestyle magazines in September 2007. The rising underground music artists selected for the "Future Rock Royalty" ad campaign were selected for their ability to inspire a generation of musicians, poets, and children through their music and for their iconic personal style, all of which Elvis Shoes collection of footwear represents.

With a primary focus on R&B, Hip-Hop, Reggaeton and Pop music, Benny Da Kidd is a revolutionary music producer, who has an uncanny ability to produce music of tomorrow -- today! He's your new age "rock star" and a product of the new millennium music phenomena. His music is culturally diverse, and encompasses rhythms, beats and sounds for just about everybody.

"Not only is it a great line of shoes, but the campaign gave me an opportunity to interact with music artists of all different types of backgrounds and styles, which I think will help influence the music I create in the future. Being associated with a very worthy cause such as the VH1 Save The Music Foundation is very cool as well," commented Benny Da Kidd when asked about being designated as "Future Rock Royalty".

PSDI USA (manufacturers of Elvis Shoes, Ed Hardy Shoes and Christian Audigier Shoes) and Elvis Shoes will donate at least $10,000 to the VH1 Save The Music Foundation from the sale of the exclusive limited edition Elvis VH1 Save The Music shoes which are currently in the design process. The limited edition shoes will be available nationwide for Holiday 2007 marking the successful launch of the Elvis Shoes. collection.
