Why No…There’s Absolutely NOTHING Ironic About The Sex Pistols Selling Tennis Shoes…

Converse releases Sex Pistols themed hi-tops...for some reason.

Converse releases Sex Pistols themed hi-tops…for some reason.

I will say this…they ARE cute shoes, though I don’t see anything very punk about them. They’re very tasteful and subdued, a proper shoe for a suburban Christian teen off to summer Bible camp….

From the hyperbolic press release:

BOSTON, MASS. (JAN 07, 2016) – CONVERSE Inc. celebrates the legendary band, Sex Pistols, with the new Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Sex Pistols collaboration for Spring 2016 showcasing iconic imagery and artwork.
The collection features colors, materials and graphics inspired by the band’s iconic style and album art. The footwear collection features details such as stitch detailing and graphic overlays. Each style includes the iconic Sex Pistols logo on the tongue of the sneaker as well as in the foot bed. The apparel collection combines elevated fabrics and graphic executions that also represent the spirit of the Sex Pistols.
The Spring 2016 Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Sex Pistols Collection will be available for purchase starting January 7, 2016 at specialty retailers, Converse stores and Converse.com. The footwear will retail for a suggested price of $65 – $80 USD with apparel ranging from $35 – $140 USD.
Uh, to represent the spirit of The Sex Pistols, they should be covered in blood, sweat, vomit, piss, Nancy Spungen’s blood and about a pound of coke.
That said, who’s gonna buy me a pair?
