Mike Shinoda x DC Remix



You may know Mike Shinoda from Linkin Park, but his talents don’t end with the music. A graduate of the Art Center College of Design, Shinoda busied himself with the band’s packaging and branding since its formation. Back in 2003, he tried his hands at sneaker design with DC, remixing the ‘Clientele.’ Now, he’s back at it again with this new release, the MSDC Xander. He combines Japanese influences to create a shoe representative of his cultural background: the upper showcases traditional Japanese patterning, drawing from origami paper for inspiration, while the sole has been customized with koi fish scale tooling on top of original artwork—also featured on the upper, insole, and outsole. You’ll find his signature on the heel, and “limited edition” in Japanese on the tongue. Just like his first venture, the proceeds from the shoe’s sales will go to his scholarship for his alma mater: the Michael K. Shinoda Endowed Scholarship. DC Shoes has kindly offered to match his donation. The shoes will be available in one colorway at www.bandmerch.com and www.pickyourshoes.com.
