Green Day Partners With Converse For “¡UNO!” All-Star Sneakers & Free Live Download Of “Oh Love”
While rebellious Bay Area punk heroes Green Day are currently cooling their jets as frontman Billie Joe Armstrong recuperates in rehab after his outburst at a recent radio show, the band is making sure their fans are still being served.
Thanks to the band’s ongoing relationship with legendary sneaker company Converse, Green Day has released a limited edition ¡UNO! branded Chuck Taylor All-Stars, emblazoned with the album’s graphics and printed laces. The shoes retail for $60 and are currently available on Converse.com.
To coincide with the rad footwear, the Converse website is also hosting a brand-new live version of ¡UNO! single “Oh Love” for free download. But like the Green Day shoes, the track is something of a limited edition, with only 20,000 free downloads of it available to the public. So Green Day fans will want to grab it sooner than later. Chop chop, Greenies!
