M83 Designs Shoe

    To go along with their recent gold-freaking-record for “Midnight City,” French electro-popsters M83 now have some footwear to rock as Bill Clinton–er, Ian Young rips into that epic sax solo.

    M83 are putting their name on a fly pair of Converse high-tops. It’s squiggly, perhaps underscored by a galaxy of stars or paint splotches. You can order a pair over at Converse.

    The company is also sponsoring a design contest where fans can submit original artwork inspired by Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming and its songs. After submission, M83 will judge and pick up to three winners, whose work will appear on limited-edition M83 posters. 100 of each winners’ posters will then be sold at the band’s Central Park SummerStage show on August 8 in New York.
