Converse Releases Sex Pistols Collection
Never mind the Yeezys.
It’s nothing new for musicians to be associated with their shoes. Way before No Age and Wu-Tang were designing their own footwear, Run DMC was rocking the shelltoe and the Beatles made their name synonymous with laceless ankle boots. So it should be no surprise that Converse—whose Chuck Taylors have been A1 since Day One with respect to punk rock—has designed a new line of shoes and clothing around the Sex Pistols.
The new line of Chuck Taylors features all-over print graphics inspired by the band’s artwork, as well as a few minimalist pairs so cleanly designed that Johnny Rotten would probably be a little uncomfortable wearing them. The collection also includes t-shirts inspired by the band’s early flyers, as well as a jacket that you should probably not wear to the next royal wedding. You can take a look at the collection below.
