Black Sabbath Launches New Line of Sneakers
Black Sabbath have once again partnered with Converse to create a new line of Chuck Taylor All Star sneakers inspired by the band. The footwear company announced the news yesterday (Jan. 6).
The Black Sabbath Collection consists of four styles, each one inspired by a different album by the original lineup. ‘Black Sabbath,’ ‘Paranoid’ and ‘Never Say Die’ are represented by the famous Chuck Taylor hi-top canvas sneaker, with album artwork printed on the shoe and band logos in period fonts stitched into the tongues. On the ’Never Say Die’ sneaker, black-and-white images of the band are featured on the inner lining. The Chuck Taylors will be available at Journeys locations, various independent shoe stores and Converse's online store for a suggested retail price of $60.
The fourth design is for Converse’s CONS Pro Skate line and is devoted to ‘Vol. 4’ and has an embroidered logo on the shoe’s tongue. It will be available in both hi-top and oxford styles and will sell for $65 and $70 at skate specialty retailers.
