Suicidal Tendencies have collaborated with Converse on a new line of shoes and apparel.

The merch will be available via Converse.com and select retailers. There will also be a pop-up store at Bodega Boston on September 6 from 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on September 7 from 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., before the band’s show at the House of Blues in Boston.
Mike Muir commented:
“When I was young, I still remember getting my first pair of ‘Chucks’ for my birthday and how stoked I was to wear them to school the next day. It was almost like a rite of passage, the beautiful thing about them is whatever ‘direction’ you were headed, you could go there with your Chucks.”
“All these years later, Converse has the same meaning to me. Just as young Mike will never forget putting on his first pair of Chucks, I can’t wait to relive that amazing feeling with the new Converse x Suicidal Tendencies, a massively proud moment for the band, our fans and of course me personally!”
A press release added:
