Linkin Park and Fort Minor’s Mike Shinoda has been collaborating with DC Shoes for quite a while now. His latest effort, the Mike Shinoda x DC Shoes MSDC Xander 2009 is a subtle design with tons of well-balanced details. Gone are the geometrically-patterned side panels, eschewd in favour of more off-white. This shade mixes well with the beige toebox and green accents throughout. The most colourful elements are the skull-and-roses insoles and the translucent outsoles. All of this comes together in a sneaker Shinoda will use to fund a scholarship in his name at his alma mater. They’ll be available at DC retailers like Standard soon.
