These are actual for-real Joy Division sneakers. I refuse to link back to the source.
What gets me most about them isn't just that it's just another creepy way to cash in on great music and a long-dead rock star. Or that the symbolism of an ostensible Joy Division fan wearing the artwork from the Unknown Pleasures album cover on their soles seems a trifle misplaced to me.
What's worst about these sneakers is that they're white. A nice, healthy sporty white. Did Ian Curtis ever jog, anyway?
Way to rape a dead man's skull and not even get the basics right.
