Gift idea: Vans’ ‘Death to the Pixies’ shoes

Vans' "Death to the Pixies" shoes

Looking for Christmas gift ideas for the Pixies fan and footwear enthusiast in your life? Get ’em Vans’ black-and-white “Death to the Pixies” shoes, which slap the band’s iconic ’80s T-shirt design — featuring a naked Black Francis hunched over, giving a thumbs-down — onto a pair of skate shoes.

While these fetching sneakers aren’t exactly new — they’ve been on the market the better part of a year now — they’re new to us at Slicing Up Eyeballs World HQ, so we figured we’d share. The shoes come in two models, depending on how you feel about ankle support: the basic Slip-On ($52) and the hi-top Sk8-Hi ($65).

And if your musical tastes gravitate toward the more metallic end of the spectrum, other groups included in Vans’ Bands line: Iron Maiden, Killswitch Engage, KISS and Mastodon.

Order the Pixies shoes here.
