Alkaline Trio Introduce Their Own Nike Kicks

Alkaline Trio Introduce Their Own Nike Kicks
Chicago goth punks
In addition to the shoes, which are vegetarian-friendly, the band will also be releasing a limited edition messenger bag. The bags, which will only be sold at Jacks Retail Shop in Huntington Beach, pay homage to the band members’ humble beginnings as bike messengers.

Alkaline Trio’s decision to partner with Nike stands in stark contrast to Minor Threat’s Ian MacKaye, who decided not to allow the company to adopt his band’s image for an advertising campaign, proving that the politics of punk are complicated indeed.

This all comes in advance of Alkaline Trio will release Agony and Irony on July 1.
