Ad-Rock can you rock the Shoe Shoppe?

Okay, I’m sorry.


#3

Cheers for Planned Parenthood, but these shoes still won’t make you cool. The cool kids will scoff at your feet and say, “Beastly who?”

#5

Zero bowling potential.


#6

Not for them; they’re for Beastie Boy fans, most of whom are now in their forties.

And get off my lawn.


#7

I wonder how much of the $97 goes to Planned Parenthood?

I’m a cheap bastard so $97 is a lot to pay for shoes I can’t try on before buying. I think I’ll just make a donation to Planned Parenthood instead.


#8

No Beasties were harmed in the creation of these shoes.

#10

Especially not wee sleekit, cowrin’, tim’rous ones.


#11

For me, when buying a piece of clothing, even one that supports charity, the appearance of said item is still paramount. The only way I would wear these is if I had were in a plane that crashed in the snow and all the other shoes on the plane had evaporated.


#12

Can you say “Right Wing Beastie Boycott”?


#13

Is Adam in Devo now?


#14

Are We not Beasties?


#15

My family has been giving to Planned Parenthood no matter which party is in office for decades. I won’t spoil that tradition with these shoes.


#16

And that’s different from the rest of my life, how? :wink:


#17

I’m guessing the Deplorables don’t listen to a lot of Jewish bands, so they’re boycotting by default.


#18

While there may be some bands with x% of Jewish members, and while we have had some amazing songwriting members of the tribe, there are damn few jewish bands.


#19

Minimal Compact?


#20

Matisyahu, although he’s an artist and not a band.
