MIKE DIRNT OF GREEN DAY TEAMS UP WITH MACBETH FOOTWEAR TO CREATE A STUDIO PROJECT COLLABORATION
Carlsbad, Calif. April 28th, 2010 - Macbeth, a Carlsbad, CA-based footwear, apparel, and accessory lifestyle brand, has teamed up with Green Day bassist Mike Dirnt for his 2nd Studio Project collaboration.
Mike Dirnt has teamed up with Macbeth once again to deliver his second collaborative Studio Project for Fall 2010. Dirnt's second Studio Project is the black/white synthetic patent leather Schubert high-top. This design, like that before it, is 100% vegan and features a custom water-based synthetic adhesive. The Schubert isn't, however, just another eco-friendly project: the design offers increased ankle support and a low profile vulcanized outsole with advanced vegan materials for a unique and comfortable sneaker on and off stage.
"I always love working with Macbeth. We have worked flawlessly since day one and I am excited to continue our collaborative efforts," says Dirnt. "Our first studio collaboration got great feedback and I am confident that everyone will appreciate my second design. I am extremely excited to get it out in stores and see the response."
Earlier this year, Dirnt donated the royalties from his first Studio Project collaboration to the Soles4Souls Foundation. Royalties totaled $10,000, which went directly to relief efforts in Haiti.
With eight studio albums and over 22 million records sold in the U.S., Green Day is considered one of the most iconic and beloved bands of its time. Currently on a world stadium tour, Green Day continues to grow their strong connection with their fans and serve as music legends on every side of the globe.
