Green Tennis Shoe

Green Day Bassist Mike Dirnt designs an all-vegan tennis shoe with popular punk rock shoe company Macbeth.

This week, Green Day bassist Mike Dirnt announced that he is partnering with popular punk rock shoe company Macbeth Footwear to create a tennis shoe made from 100-percent vegan materials. The shoe is constructed with manmade materials and uses a cruelty-free, custom water-based synthetic adhesive. Currently, Macbeth Footwear anticipates a fall release date for the tennis shoes. This is the third time that Dirnt has collaborated with the company, previously teaming up to create a black and gold vegan high-top sneaker dubbed "Schubert" and a low-top companion called "Matthew." Macbeth Footwear was co-founded in 2002 by Blink 182 front man Tom DeLonge.
