Converse And Black Sabbath Hook Up


While we don't know whether to be loathe or hipster-feeling to admit we've actually seen Black Sabbath in concert, we also can't decide whether wearing these new Black Sabbath-style Chuck Taylors from Converse would cause friends to loathe us or place us on the pedestal of hipsterati-hood. You're gonna have to tell us whether or not these Dr. Romanelli-designed kicks are worthy of the foot. Apparently, Black Sabbath is having a resurrection.

Somehow I think converse making a black sabbath shoes makes them automatically lose their hipster appeal.

I could, of course, be wrong.

Would've worked if they launched them pre-ozzy's reality tv career.

You can say what you want about The Osbourne's and MTV but the fact is, is that Black Sabbath is still cool no matter what MTV has done to the Ozzy name. I don't particularly like the leather design you show, but the others are very cool. Anyone that cares about being "Hipster" probably wouldn't buy these shoes anyway. The other lines they have set to go are pretty cool as well. At least it's not another piece of KISS merch.
