Green Day singer Billy Joe Armstrong has had his own official shoe released by Converse sneakers, with some of the profits to go to charity.

The shoe – called 1HUN(RED) – is primarily black with red soles, and made from hemp and leather. 10% of the proceeds from each pair sold will go to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.

Green Day bassist Mike Dirnt also has his own custom shoe coming out soon.

The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria was created to dramatically increase resources to fight three of the world’s most devastating diseases, and to direct those resources to areas of greatest need. The Fund has committed over US$ 5.4 billion in 131 countries to support aggressive interventions against all three.

The shoes are available in a range of sizes up to 13 and a half, cost $69.99, and are available wherever good shoes are “soled”…
