Do I feel Chucky? Well, do ya punk?

My Mum was visiting the flat this afternoon and told me about some Converse All Stars that she had spotted, and which had made her think of me. They had a pop art print on the heel, she said.

An internet perusal later and, although we couldn’t find the Lichtenstein-esque ones she'd seen, I did come across this punk-inspired selection, available at Office.

Designs featuring The Clash and Blondie – please use the comments box to debate whether Blondie is technically ‘punk’ below – adorn classic Chuck Taylor high-tops, Oxford lows, and the lite Oxford.

Blondie Oxford low - My personal choice

And if you're a fan of neither The Clash or Blondie (shame on you) you can buy these non-committal 'I heart ...' high tops, and scribble in your favourite band with permanent marker. Or water-soluble if you're particularly fickle.

Since my black & silver zebra striped high tops disintegrated, I've been looking for a replacement. I'm thinking the b/w Blondie Ox lows could be a payday treat!

I love Blondie and I love The Clash but.. I prefer my Converse completely plain, only adorned with a few choice mosh-pit scuff-marks. Precious? Moi?

No, I can understand that. It's virtually impossible to go wrong with a pair of plain All Stars. But the pairing of a favourite band and a favourite trainer is tough to turn down!
