What you are looking at a pair of runners designed by Johnny Marr, former partner to that singing monstrosity Morrissey and now guitar-slinger for hire (currently employed by Modest Mouse).

They are in “luxurious” dark blue leather with black accents, while Marr’s signature is laser-etched in the tongue of every shoe.
