Fuck Nike

Tired of buying shoes from The Man?

Pissed that Nike slurped up Converse, effectively rendering your punk-rock ass a party to the sweaty sweatshop system?

Do you have a guilty conscience?

Do you like to shop?

Well guess what? I'm your best friend today, Buddy. That's what.

Check out these tasty vegan shoes from Novacas,

They're available now at OTSU (a vegan's best friend) in a plethora of styles and colors (in case your delicate fashion sensibilities are offended by these).

I'm pretty sure Awful Cufflinks did a spread on OTSU's shoes a while back, but I couldn't find the direct link in their archive. Hopefully The Awfuls (Tara and Krissy) will forgive me.

For you die hard Converse maniacs (myself included), No Sweat Apparel has made a shoe that finally, actually looks like your Chuck-T's, instead of some fake-ass substitute.

Wonderful shit. They come in happy colors (like pink, Molly) and they're like balm on your guilt-ridden soul.

See? I'm a giver. I'm the Mother Theresa of shopping.
