Last month, Look To The Stars brought you the news that Green Day bassist Mike Dirnt had designed a new vegan shoe. Now we can reveal that he is donating all royalties from sales to shoe charity Soles4Souls, the international shoe charity dedicated to providing free shoes to people in need.
The “45 RPM” Studio Project shoe hit the streets worldwide in June 2009, on the tail of Green Day’s highly anticipated album release, “21st Century Breakdown.” The shoe, just like the band, is turning heads around the world.
The “45 RPM” comes in the lax low top or aggressive high top, so choose your statement and rock it fully; either way, both options are 100 percent vegan-crafted, containing zero animal products in the construction and distribution. The shoe comes in black, but is highlighted with distressed gold lining and eyelets, and even showcases custom 45 RPM record artwork. If that’s not enough, the shoe’s boot-like construction is sure to fit Mike’s unique style.
Macbeth Footwear is excited to get these shoes onto your feet so you can check out “21st Century Breakdown” in the utmost appropriate style.
Dirnt’s decision to personally contribute all the royalties from this shoe towards Soles4Souls has energized the charity: “We are so excited to be a part of this incredible promotion,” said Wayne Elsey, Founder and CEO of Soles4Souls. “We are very grateful for Mike Dirnt’s generosity and encourage everyone to check out Mike’s awesome new shoes.”
