Win Some Shoes Autographed by The National, Yo La Tengo, The Jesus Lizard and 47 Other Bands


If you a) like indie rock, b) spend at least some portion of your day walking and c) are a generally good person who cares about others, then boy, have we got some news for you. Currently available via eBay auction are a pair of Saucony Original sneakers autographed by no fewer than 50 of today’s best musicians in independent music.

The shoes were signed during this summer’s Pitchfork Festival and all proceeds will benefit Saucony’s Run for Good Foundation, which works to fight against childhood obesity. The shoes being a size 15, if you’re not rather gigantic, they may need to stay on display in your trophy case.

The bands (many with multiple member signatures) on the shoes include:

Yo La Tengo
The National
The Jesus Lizard
Black Lips
The Walkmen
The Pains of Being Pure at Heart
The Dutchess and the Duke
The Antlers
Fucked Up
Pharoahe Monch
Killer Whales
Blitzen Trapper
Frightened Rabbit
Michael Columbia
Cymbals Eat Guitars

The current bid is only $27.00, but we expect that decimal point to move a bit to the right, considering bidding lasts until Nov. 15. The holidays are just around the corner, after all.
