“We chose red and black as the main colors to reflect our Chicago roots and pay homage to the Bulls. We are huge fans,” said Matt Skiba of Alkaline Trio. “I’m also into sneakers, so seeing the swoosh and our logo on one product is unbelievable. The shoe looks amazing and provides some insight into who we are.”

Custom design elements include reflective details and bike-tread inspired graphics, correlating to the band’s formative years in Chicago where the members met while working as bike messengers. Distressed materials translate the punk ethos, and the Alkaline Trio logo is featured on the heel cup. The Heart and Sole Cush is constructed of all synthetics, supporting select band members who are vegetarian.

The Air Zoom Cush, new to the Nike 6.0 line, is a low profile action-sports shoe, built for high performance and increased responsiveness. The Cush features a one-piece toe vamp and V-oriented grooves in the sole to increase flex.

    The guy at the shop I go to said these are going to be hard to find so don’t expect online sales. In NorCal, Ground Zero in Roseville will have these. Not sure if they ship, though.
