breaking news: a brand new MS / DC sneaker is on the horizon.

it’s going to be part of their “remix” series. this will be the second remix project i’ve done for them, and i think it turned out INCREDIBLE. we’re remixing two different shoes this time–both are newer, slimmer fit shoes (not as bulky as DCs usually are…these feel more like the old-school skate sneakers we used to wear back in, like, ’88).

the first round of these is going to be showing up this summer–available in hi top and low. we hand-picked top quality materials, and i’ve been testing the samples myself, to make sure they are one of the most comfortable and durable shoes i have. my art will appear on a few different places on the shoe…more info to come later!

    Back in ’88 woww!. I wasn’t even born yet.. huh..funny! ok not really but anywayyyyy… If they hit the UK someday in the very distant future i will look out for them :DDD But im sure if they look anything like what you usually wear they’ll be pretty dope! xDD

    good to hear your still working on shoe ideas! this may sound crazy, though i guarantee im not the only one, but i bought the LP Axel DCs when they came out like 7 years ago and i’ve been wearing them ever since! yes, they have a few tears and holes, but they are still holding up really good. anyway, my family is giving me crap for wearing these still instead of getting new shoes but i just can’t bring myself to part from these ones. they still look fine still, they are indestructible, and they have survived ridiculous torture including 2 lp concerts! well, hopefully by the time you make some bulkier style ones again (if you do), then i will be almost ready to part from the trusty LP Axels.

    I’ve seriously been looking for a pair of the first shoes for the past year and a half with no luck. I’m seriously so excited that there are new ones that are going to come out! I’m probably going to buy several pairs of them >.>.

    I hope you see this one day(:

  5. Crystal122208 on March 30, 2008 at 8:24 am

  6. Kaytee on March 29, 2008 at 6:52 pm

    Oh my god i can’t wait for the new shoe i’ve seen pics of the others but it sucks that i can’t buy any of them cuz they don’t sell them in New Zealand. It Sucks so bad i really want a pair they look soooooo awesome and cool. I’ll do anything for a pair of them shoes!!!!

  7. Sammy on March 29, 2008 at 5:23 pm

    thats great the last shoes was awesome and I am looking forward to seeing the new shoes ♥

  8. Phoenix on March 29, 2008 at 4:59 pm

    Dude, your art is incredible! I want to get a pair, but where can i get them!? You rock Mike!!

  9. Madlen on March 29, 2008 at 3:41 pm

    wow that’s so awesome:)i really wish i could by them and then i can look at your art anytime i want to…people would prolly think i’m weird but who cares?hhaha:)can’t wait…

  10. Kira on March 28, 2008 at 5:28 pm

    I actually bought a pair of both the brown and black shoes you did. Unfortunately I bought the brown ones first and in the wrong size, but my mom ended up wearing them. She still does. Also, it’s nice to hear that they won’t be as bulky. I am a girl who was cursed with large feet and DC shoes make my feet look giant.

  11. Snails on March 28, 2008 at 1:49 pm

    Ooo the nikes i was going to buy can wait! Hi-top+Mike art+DC=shoe heaven 🙂

  12. Aditya_the_warrior_within on March 28, 2008 at 1:19 pm

    ok so its 8-9 pm for everyone .. no at the same time

  13. Kosh on March 28, 2008 at 7:14 am

    oh its 8-9pm everyones local time. So whenever its 8pm at shanghai. =]

  14. OceanBiscuit on March 28, 2008 at 7:04 am

    BTW,The EARTH HOUR activity seems dope!!!! I wanna take park in it, but “March 29th 8-9pm”………when will it be in shanghai,china??? O_O

  15. OceanBiscuit on March 28, 2008 at 7:01 am

    Hey dude!!!!! The news sounds sooooo exciting!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can’t wait to see the sneakers!!!! 😀

  16. Kosh on March 28, 2008 at 4:27 am

    I know this is very much off topic, but I hope you (mike Shinoda) and all other climate conscious people will be participating in the EARTH HOUR Tomorrow March 29th 8-9pm. People all over the globe will be switching off their lights and any other unnecessary electrical appliances for one hour, a world wide movement against climate change. Together we can make a change =]

    Sorry about the off topic-ness, people.

  17. soyuneik on March 27, 2008 at 11:31 pm

    I dunno, I’d havta see see and try them myself. I’m real picky when it come to my shoes and typically there all and only shell tops.
    I’ve been rocking the “I love Tokyo” Anniversary ones lately. Make a Shinoda Shell.. I bet they’d be hot as hell.

  18. shinoda_me on March 27, 2008 at 10:50 pm

    thats the most sensible post i’ve seen around …. u really speak like you’re my conscience! XD ..
    and yeah …. it doesnt matter if Mike reads our posts or not … the important thing is that we know he cares! why else would he have an LPU chat more often than other band members? and why the hell would he have this blog if he didnt want to do something to satisfy our cravings to know what he’s thinkin everyday?

  19. YourConscience on March 27, 2008 at 10:38 pm

    And you know it’s in your best interest to take what I say into consideration… After all, I’m Your Conscience… =D

  20. YourConscience on March 27, 2008 at 10:34 pm

    Okay, for those of you who are set on Mike posting that he’s read our comments, just chill out a bit. If you know anything about the man, you know that he’s busy. I, for one, am glad that he even takes the time to keep us all updated. With all that these guys do for their fans (and more!!!), is it really fair of us to ask for more?! Come on… He’s posted before in response to the comments he recieved on a previous blog, and in the recent LPU chat he made it a point to say thanks to all the people who care enough to write… You’re out of your mind if you think he doesn’t care – even I don’t have enough time to read everybody’s posts! =D

  21. paneska on March 27, 2008 at 9:11 pm

    hey everybody!
    tell mike to post in his blog if he read our comments or not! ….don’t you think we need an answer for all those words we say?? we say “mike, you’re awesome” but he don’t answer. we say “your art is fucking awesome, incredible!” but he don’t answer. we say “your last designed shoes are the best shoes i have!!” but he don’t answer….it seems like he doesn’t care about our words…=(
    hey mike! please just say in your blog “i read the comments” if you do it

  22. DaniShinoda on March 27, 2008 at 8:48 pm

    Wow, awesome new for us Mike! Your artwork is really great!
    I can not wait to see the shoes! (:
    And I want it!
    Take care Shinoda!

  23. DRO22 on March 27, 2008 at 7:28 pm

  30. PerpetualPerwana on March 27, 2008 at 4:07 pm

    By the way, I am in first place 🙂

  31. PerpetualPerwana on March 27, 2008 at 4:06 pm

    Hey Mike! I adored your other DC’s and I’m looking foward to buying these new remixes :)I have something to ask you about the REMIX2WIN contest. The winner will set a date, and if that date is not available for LP, some other artist will be there. would you be able to email me the dates that LP would be free, because I surely do not want anyone else BUT LP to come. I won backstage passes to the M&G in Lexington on Feb. 25th, and that was amazing.

  32. PerpetualPerwana on March 27, 2008 at 4:06 pm

    KY really would love you all to come back. I don’t know if you read these comments or not, but if you do, I would really appreciate for you to contact my email address & tell me a good date that you and the rest of the guys to be free ( If I win the REMIX2WIN contest ) haha. I know you guys are in Europe right now and you won’t be back until the Projekt Revolution Tour, But when that is over, it’ll be time for the REMIX2WIN contest to be over & I don’t want another band to come 😦 I want YOU ALL! Please get back with me, thanks

  33. KATHYxx on March 27, 2008 at 2:49 pm

    i Love your shoes!

    I had the last remix set and they were the best. I cant wait for these

  34. Ossik on March 27, 2008 at 2:34 pm

    I like your art. I find it cool. But it’s a great pity, that I can’t buy them in Germany. Sorry, for my english.

  35. Noe_Kenji on March 27, 2008 at 2:24 pm

    what about girls shoes!!!????? 😀
    It would be cool to have MS DC shoes and still seeming girls… 🙂

    I’m coming back mike 🙂


  36. AS_21 on March 27, 2008 at 12:56 pm

  52. Mickey on March 27, 2008 at 3:03 am

    Both you and Chester need to make your shoes/clothing a worldwide thing, already.

  53. AnVanoppens on March 27, 2008 at 2:21 am

    AWESOME MIKE!!!! great job! i hope i can buy them soon.. xD

  54. RomanaW on March 27, 2008 at 2:10 am

    Sounds really great!
    Hope to see a Pic very soon of it 🙂

    I hope they are going for sale in Europe too!
    The etnies i also wanted, but i couldn’t find them in Europe:-(

  55. I_died on March 27, 2008 at 1:48 am

    That sounds amazing, I’m really exited to see them but I’m really sure they turn out really awesome, ‘coz the last ones you did for DC were awesome, too.
    Keep doing your thing!

  56. Sashy on March 27, 2008 at 1:34 am

    Sounds bloody awesome!

    I love to death the other DC remix’s you did, but they’re still looking brand new 😀

    Do agree with SHINODA_ME though, I prefer the bulky shoes, but haven’t seen these ones, so can’t make any decisions quite yet. The art will be kick ass!

  57. shinoda_me on March 27, 2008 at 1:12 am

    keep doing your thing!
    i love these..

    oh and i like bulky shoes actually..
    i cudnt even get my hand on any of the LP related shoes.. (yet!)

  58. Ravaging_Hamster on March 27, 2008 at 1:01 am

    I hope I can get a pair soon 🙂 The only pair of tennis shoes I have are the running shoes I got in basic lol

  59. Daga280 on March 27, 2008 at 12:21 am

    ;D cool^^ i have the Etnies shoes already and wanna buy the DC’s one 😉 Ill wait 4 the new collection 😉

  60. LPchaos06 on March 26, 2008 at 11:28 pm

    o0oh yes! this will be my fourth pair of LP-related shoes 😀

  61. YourConscience on March 26, 2008 at 11:20 pm

    ’88… Mike, c’mon… Half these kids weren’t even born yet! Haha. I actually perfer the chunkier shoes, so I might be able to surpass temptation this time… Maybe… =D

    P.S. Murry… I think you have a problem, too… But it’s totally justifiable… =)

  62. Illara on March 26, 2008 at 11:08 pm

    sounds awesome 🙂

  63. Doggie24690 on March 26, 2008 at 10:49 pm

    AHHH!!! I’m so excited!!!!!!! I’ve been waiting for you to do something like this again for a long time because I wasn’t able to get my hands on your last shoe. You make me giggle Mike. Haha.

  64. nillp on March 26, 2008 at 9:34 pm

    “..these feel more like the old-school skate sneakers we used to wear back in, like, ‘88..”

    yeah..! i prefer this then the other standard.. 🙂

    hope u have more about it as soon as possible.. and as celestial said, we all would like to see pictures if it’s possible! 😉

    see u; take care..

    love ya ~ ♥


  65. Celestial on March 26, 2008 at 9:08 pm

    Psh, converses. Nikes all the way!

    By the way, I’m sure people would like to see pics of this new shoe you designed (myself included).

  66. murry on March 26, 2008 at 9:06 pm

    Good to know. I’ll start paying down my credit card now. I just bought a pair of Club Tattoo Etnies, which were destined for me, and therefore totally justifiable. But I have the first generation of the Remix DC’s, the brown ones, so I’ll have to get a pair of these, too, to round out the collection. Which is also totally justifiable.

    I think I have a problem.

  67. AussiePrincess on March 26, 2008 at 9:05 pm

    DC are OK I guess…but there’s this little voice in the back of my head that keeps saying CONVERSE CONVERSE CONVERSE.

  68. kaosgirl on March 26, 2008 at 9:04 pm

    just be sure to post some pictures when you get all the info straight. its nice to see that youre back to working on art and stuff.

    looking foward to owning another pair. we better be able to buy them through the LPU again

  69. Cyan on March 26, 2008 at 9:03 pm

    wow, it sounds coooooooooool ! :] we are looking forward to it! :]

  70. vanessa_6487 on March 26, 2008 at 8:44 pm

    i’m definatly going to buy them… i bet they are great as all the things that you do ;]… thnkx so much for lettting us know… love you and take care :]


  71. ruru87 on March 26, 2008 at 8:43 pm
