Blondie Getting Their Own Converse Too

    Last week it was the Clash getting their own line of Converse sneakers, and now it’s Blondie, the most successful band to be reared at the teat of CBGBs. The Blondie sneakers are a little less shocking, since Blondie has been a more visible presence in clothing and shoewear (my nine-year-old cousin owns a Blondie tank top, and she has definitely never heard Parallel Lines), but still, sneakers for a band that started out vaguely punk? Not cool. Though the other dudes in Blondie are probably okay with it, since their face isn’t on the shoe at all: Like all things Blondie since the ’80s, it’s all about Debbie Harry. [Daily Swarm]
