686 x Mike Shinoda Parka : Behind The Scenes

Mike West, founder and creative director of 686 alongside Mike Shinoda give us an insight of the collaboration on the limited edition 686 x Mike Shinoda Parka.

"Everything we do at 686 resonates with a purpose," explains West. "Over the past two decades, we’ve explored new things well outside the industry norm. Hopefully we’ve been able to open some eyes while remaining true to our beliefs as an independent brand. Working with Mike Shinoda is a prime example of two likeminded people coming together for the purpose of bringing new ideas to the table. Check out the process on how this 686 x Mike Shinoda Parka came about."

The limited edition parka will be available Friday Nov. 15 at Zumiez.com with a portion of the proceeds benefitting Music for Relief
