Linkin Park and Fort Minor’s Mike Shinoda has not been well known for his designs; even though he has designed all of LP’s branding and started his career attending the Art Center College of Design in California. This being his 2nd project with DC Shoes the MSDC series will consist of the Xanders and the Prides, both designed in a similar traditional Japanese motif. Shinoda’s artwork is seen through out the insides and outsides of the shoes, along with traditional Japanese patterns and Koi scales. These shoes will be first showcased at the Japanese American National Museum on July 11th; and later will be sold together with a limited edition booklet of Mike’s artwork starting August 1st.
