Legendary photographer Mick Rock is launching a new sneaker line in conjunction with TheCollaboratory, and he's enlisted Oscar winner Benicio del Toro to model the trendy kicks in As If magazine.

With the shoes showing off the late, great David Bowie, del Toro agreed to the interview only if Rock — his interviewer — agreed to talk about "music, culture, and rock-n-roll."

In fact, del Toro turns the tables at one point, quizzing Rock on his iconic images of Bowie.
