And who designs your shoes?

Mike DirntApparently, Mike Dirnt, the bass player for Green Day, is also a shoe designer. No, I’m not joking, and yes, it’s all right to laugh (I did). Though, I suppose it’s not that surprising given the fact that countless celebrities regularly try their hand at fashion and style — everyone from legendary athletes like Michael Jordan to cutting-edge pop stars like Kanye West and now, I guess we can add Mike Dirnt to the list. According to Shoes4Souls, an international charity that provides free shoes to people in need, Dirnt (with some from MacBeth Footwear) has created a shoe called “45 RPM” from which any royalties he receives as a result of shoe sales will go directly to the charity.

Now, while I think broadening your horizons by trying new things can be a good thing, personally, I’m also about sticking to what you’re good at. Green Day is a great band, but Green Day as shoe designers? Well…I guess we’ll find out.

Thankfully, if there’s one thing I know, it’s here at Shoefly the brands we carry are great at designing fabulous shoes.  With designers like Sam Edelman, Joy Chen, Camper, Biviel, Kelsi Dagger (and more!), it’s hard to go wrong. So if you’re looking for an aggressive shoe with a rock n’ roll feel, give a look at the shoes pictured below. And if you’re concerned about supporting a worthy cause, buy a pair of shoes you’ll actually like, and then just donate to a charity of your choice.

    Whoa! Thanks for posting this, Richard! I have plunked a few bass strings myself, and I have to say that I think the shoes Mike has created would definitely punch up my bass lines. Those are rock star shoes for sure. :)
