Washed Out revealed his limited Keep shoe design today, making Ernest Greene the fifth musician to collaborate with the L.A. company. (Animal Collective, Bon Iver, Dinosaur Jr, and Tegan and Sara are the other four.) According to a pre-order page, the plimsolls “feature a black cotton canvas body with teal eyelets, laces and sole. The side foxing of each sole has been hand stenciled with black polka dots, and the lining showcases the gorgeous botanical blooms from the cover of Washed Out’s latest album, Paracosm.” Included with each pair are a couple previously unreleased tracks, the format of which has not been revealed yet. So it could be a nice slab of colored vinyl or it could be a simple download card; Keep isn’t saying yet.

While we wait for more details — “The Homer” isn’t out until September — here are some product shots to help you decide if the things are fashion-forward or hippy dippy…
