New Balance Joy Division Trainers

No, this isn’t a hoax! A British designer actually sculpted a limited edition shoe for New Balance as a tribute to the legendary late ’70s UK post-punk band Joy Division. Apparently they are on sale in a few UK stores. For those who might not know the story, lead singer Ian Curtis hung himself in 1980 and the rest of the band went on to form the slightly more cheery New Order. The first shoe to celebrate the ‘Runner’s Low’? Maybe a Happy Mondays ’24 Hour Party People’ model would have been a tad more appropriate.
