Prefix has some interesting news from the Beastie Boys camp for the second week in a row. After reporting last week that they were nominated to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, we’re learning today that the trio now has their own pair of Converse shoes. The $200 kicks are super-limited and feature previously unreleased photographs taken by Sunny Bak during the Licensed to Ill tour in 1986.
And should you opt to throw down a pair of benjamins on the shoes, you can feel good about your decision because 10 percent of the sale goes to Prop 8 Films. According to their website, Prop 8 Films is “dedicated to creating socially conscious documentary films for a wide audience throughout the world.”
You can buy the shows now on eBay.
