Soundgarden is on the precipice of a mighty return: they’ve released their first LP in 15 years, King Animal, played Letterman and Jools Holland, and will embark on sizable 2013 world tour. But all of those triumphs pale in comparison to their latest: they’ve joined the likes of M83 and Gorillaz as recipients of their own Converse shoe. They’re back, babies!

As Blabbermouth points out, the limited-edition Soundgarden Chuck Taylor All Star sneaker features the King Animal cover on a monochromatic black sneaker, with the new Soundgarden logo highlighted in white on the heel. Unlike other rock-star lines, these shoes are limited to 60 pairs and will be available only at Converse’s Santa Monica store at Third Street Promenade and at The good news, though, is that they’re available in unisex sizes, so you and your beloved can both rock your own pair.

And though you won’t need a pair of shoes, you may want to grab a thick jacket when you watch the band’s video for “Been Away Too Long” below. Their upcoming tour schedule, where shoes are required at each venue, follows.
