Macbeth, a Carlsbad, CA-based footwear, apparel, and accessory
lifestyle brand, is proud to announce its third Studio Project
collaboration with Green Day bassist Mike Dirnt.
Dirnt has been rocking crowds around the world with his band, Green
Day, since 1987. With the release of the epic, award-winning album
“Dookie” in 1994, Green Day became one of the first punk rock bands to
capture the attention of the mainstream, and 2004’s “American Idiot”
was an international sensation, selling over 15 million copies
worldwide, winning multiple Grammy Awards and spawning a Broadway
This third Studio Project from Dirnt will accompany Macbeth’s Spring
2011 Collection, and like Dirnt’s past collaborations, this one is also
fully vegan. Dirnt chose to outfit Macbeth’s existing silhouette, The
Schubert, in a rugged military green upper, comprised of organic
cotton, PET (recycled plastic fibers) and a recycled polyester woven
material, while the black outsole consists of recycled rubber
components from tires. Additionally, the adhesive is a water-based,
synthetic, vegan glue.
Dirnt has chosen to donate his royalties from the collaboration to
The National Military Family Association’s Operation Purple, a program
created to empower military children and their families to develop and
maintain healthy and connected relationships, in spite of the current
military environment. Created in 2004 to fill a need identified by
military parents to help them help their kids, Operation Purple
periodically sponsors camps that provide military kids with an
opportunity to have fun and make friends in an environment where they
are reminded that they are our nation's youngest heroes.
“I’m really excited to be teaming up with Macbeth for another Studio
Project,” explains Dirnt. “Macbeth is a great company, producing
quality product in a conscious way, and I’m always happy to find a way
to lend a hand to great programs like Operation Purple."
