They have recently teamed up with DC Shoes to create their very own DC Pride sneaker. On the exterior, the shoe looks pretty plain however once you look at the inside, you will discover that the lining and the insole is customized with the band’s lyrics and rhymes. The shoe comes with an exclusive Hilltop Hood’s CD and will be releasing sometime next month.
