Who Knew? Linkin Park Designs Boots That Don't Suck At All

Somewhere around 2001 (maybe in a Ford Explorer), you were blasting Linkin Park's "Crawling." Then, in 2003, you were screaming in the mirror, silently mouthing the words to "Numb." Oh man, then the remix came with Jay-Z...along with that epic crossover album. "Who you know fresher than Hov?" Exactly.

Since then, the mega-anthem band has racked up a couple #1 albums (NBD) — although we haven't exactly been up on the Park. So, allow us to relive some high school college glory days in a wholly unexpected way: The band has collaborated with Sebago (you know, the heritage label responsible for those awesome, preppy-perfect boat shoes) on a — wait for it — pair of badass boots that guys everywhere shouldn't be ashamed to rock...even if they've hidden their Linkin Park albums. Seriously, this tough footwear will amp up your favorite pair of worn jeans, soft oxford shirt, or even your hole-y, can't-let-go T-shirt. Bonus: 10 percent of the proceeds from the Linkin Park & Sebago boot will go to Hurricane Sandy victims via the group's own charity, Music For Relief. Now can we get an encore?
