DC just released a shoe designed by Mike Shinoda. While people may be a tired of the “collaboration” theme oft used by clothing companies to generate buzz around a product, the DC MSDC Xander is a nice celebration of art, music, and fashion in a tidy little package. Shinoda, MC for Linkin Park, has been into drawing and art since long before his fame with the group. Additionally, while maintaining his duties as an MC and producer, Mike also held tight reigns over the Linkin Park artwork, publicity material and branding of the band.
Im pickin up what they are puttin’ down.
Packaging geeks will swoon. The box has a clean and subtle woodgrain design, and opening the box you are greeted by festive tones of purple. I like how the extra laces and and a booklet featuring Mike Shinoda’s art are enveloped in purple tyvek. The coloring on the tyvek renders a cool, fiberous, visual texture.
The shoes are real clean earthy tones with flash spots of red and laser etch detail. I think my favorite part of the shoe is the clear fish scale see through sole with the skull artwork underneath.
***edit. WE JUST GOT THE LOWS IN.
it’s pretty much the same as the hightop with the same “extras” but looks really slick in a low.
