EDIT: From the Late-Breaking Holiday Gift Guide Additions Dept: Turns out, you now CAN have these shoes we originally teased you with last month, thanks to The Ave. Venice and Tauntr.com, which is now selling the three Converse designs for $85 a pop right over here, just in time for the holiday giving season. (FYI, I wear a ladies' size 9.) It truly is a Christmas miracle!
Illustrator Jon Defreest is the foremost online peddler of awesome shit that you can’t have, because it only exists in his pop-culture-addled mind. From “I Just Blue Myself” and “All Of The Bacon And Eggs You Have” Ben & Jerry’s flavor mock-ups to the only (spoiler-y!) Gus Fring Halloween mask you’ll ever need to Ron Swanson’s Turf ’n’ Turf frozen dinner, the products that emerge from Defreest’s mind and Wacom tablet are the we-wish-it-were-real stuff A.V. Club Gift Guides are made out of. Today he decided to taunt us even further with these Breaking Bad-ified Chuck Taylor All Stars he created for Tauntr.com, along with Walking Dead and Dexter-inspired designs.
Yes, they’re totally badass, and no, you can’t have them, because they’re just concepts… for now. Maybe if we all tweet-bomb Converse, we can make them a reality.
