If you love a good mosh, you’ll know how much your shoes can take a beating. A lot of you might even have assigned yourselves a pair or two of designated mosh kicks. Some of you may have even decorated these beloved shoes with the logos of your favourite bands. Over the years I’ve seen everything from permanent marker scribblings on good old Chuck Taylor’s, to some immensely creative hand painted works on the likes of Deviant Art. If DIY is not your thing but you’d love to utilise another piece of everyday attire as a means for representing your favourite bands, the good news is that with a bit of hunting you just might be able to find yourself a ready-made pair, thanks to the wonderful world of retail.
So folks, get your hard earned cash at the ready; here’s some examples of what’s currently available:
