Deftones & Team Sleep Frontman Launches Skater Socks Line
Mon, 04 Feb 2008 15:23:36
Chino Moreno, the unmistakable voice at the center of Deftones and Team Sleep, just launched his very own clothing company called "ChinoSox." It features an exclusive line of skater socks endorsed and designed by the singer. Chino has always rocked skater socks live. Since Deftones' early days, they’ve been a staple of his stage presence. With a variety of styles and colors, the line is perfect for guys and girls.
The socks are available for purchase online exclusively through the ChinoSox website and MySpace page. Right now they’re available in two different packs. The first is a 3-pack of 22-inch striped skate socks with Chino’s name inscribed inside. Those run for $18 plus shipping and handling. There’s also a 5-pack of socks that includes a limited edition pair: the red, white and blue socks that Chino’s made famous on stage. The five-pack is $25 plus shipping and handling. The five-pack features Chino’s signature stage socks, though.
About the socks, Chino says, “Every time I’m on tour, people come up to me and ask me about the socks I wear onstage. No one can ever seem to find dope looking skater socks. So I thought it would be cool to make my own signature line of skate socks, so that fans could pick them up. They’re pretty sick!”
