Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park and Fort Minor, has done a second collaboration with DC for the Remix Series project. Shinoda didn’t take the far too typical celebrity designer approach, and simply suggest a few concepts here and there. His artwork is literally all over the series. With a formal art education from the Art Center College of Design in California, Shinoda has used his passion for art and perhaps his Japanese ancestry to create traditional Japanese patterns and Koi scale textures as a theme for the project, which is made up of two models, the MSDC Xander and the MSDC Pride. The uppers, insole, outsoles, and footbeds, are all designed off of Mike’s artwork.
Both models will be available starting August 1st at exclusive footwear boutiques worldwide and on Mike’s website.
