M83 Designs Sneakers, Big Boi Designs Socks

Not to be outdone by Justin Vernon (and many, many others), the dreamy worlds of M83 and the more canvas-based worlds of Converse will collide for a new shoe. It’s on sale now and pictured up top; view a trailer for an adjoining design contest Converse is hosting below. Also, while we’re on the foot tip, Sir Lucious Left Foot himself revealed that he’s got a line of socks coming out. From a recent interview:

Your pink and green socks tonight were particularly special…
I’m the sock king! They’ve got a cape on the back – that’s how I flew here. I got my own socks line coming out with Crooks & Castles. Head over to 677 Antone Street, Atlanta Georgia, 30318 and get some!

There you have it. Anyway, Here’s the trailer for the design contest run in conjunction with the M83/Converse collaboration:
