if they were adidas, i would have bought them.. :)
the look of the shoe don't appeal to me at all (not the design, but the shoe itself.. it's got seams everywhere).
the white ones look ok though, if they were like 20 bucks i would have bought them, just to have an extra pair :P

but i usually buy my kicks on amazon :D i end up paying like $70 (shipping included) for something that would cost AT LEAST $200 over here :)

that's my life story!

I am surprised that the way Buzz now has their main CD sleeve artwork on the back of the case hasn't caught on. It does allow maximum exposure to the artwork.

most bands aren't about full exposure of their artwork, they're about not confusing -and subsequently scaring away- potential fans.


about the shoes:
Buzz told me they had very very little to do with the shoes.  it wasn't even their idea.  a friend of dale who knows someone at nike approached them, asking if they could do it.  they didn't disagree

Ah, so that's all you need to do is ask them and have them not disagree. Does that mean "maybe" works?

I personally thought the black ones looked alright, but I'm not paying that much for shoes. It's funny that the Melvins release so many wacky things over the years (fetus in a jar? An 8-track tape???), yet no one was cool with the shoes at all.
Hail, not fail.

If i found the shoes somewhere i might buy them just for collectable purposes, if they didn't cost too much that is.

I would buy Melvins shoes if they didn't suck. Like maybe some Chucks with the Melvins Army logo where the All Star logo is. In black of course. Add some red stitching.

Sweet avitar Fart Lips, is that a Basquiat?
That rug really tied the room together.

I think the black ones with the skull tipped toes are pretty cool......... I've had several people comment on em without any knowledge of the band - plus they're very comfortable (1st pair of sneakers I've bought in about 8 years - haha)


mopa - keep an eye out on ebay - I got mine for $110(AU)

Yeah I completely agree that the Melvins Nike shoes are just amazing. I had such an amazing experience with it. In fact now I was just thinking to invest in Nike workout leggings as well as tank tops for my Zumba classes. It is hard to find any sale offers right now. Is there any upcoming sale?
