Gorillaz and Pearl Jam Sneakers
Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars are cool and timeless by any measure, but these Gorillaz Chucks, designed by Gorillaz co-creator Jamie Hewlett with elements from the band's artwork just plain rock. They aren't available until February, but you'll be able to preorder them in time to give that special someone on your list something to look forward to come Valentine's day.
Looking for something just as cool and maybe a bit more skater oriented? To celebrate the band's 1991 debut album "Ten," Vans has made Pearl Jam Sk8-Hi high-tops in two styles: red and black plaid flannel (fittingly), and bright yellow and kelly green (the colors of the Seattle Sonics, no less). Both have the band's name stitched in white on the back of the heel and both are available for $65 from Vans.com.
