Props to Killian Doyle for unearthing the latest pair of Manc runners.

Following in the footsteps of Joy Division and Johnny Marr, the FAC51-Y3s are limited-edition trainers released to celebrate the 25th anniversary of The Haçienda.

The runners, limited to 250 pairs, are a design collaboration between Peter Saville (the original Factory Records graphic designer), Ben Kelly (the Haçienda’s interiors architect) and Peter Hook (off-the-ankle bassist with New Order, Joy Division, Revenge, Monaco and Satellite Party).

Here, then, are a pair of FAC51-Y3s on a metal plate from the Haçienda with some wood from the original dancefloor. Today’s question: would you pay £345 for these?
