“London in 1976 was a revolutionary year for its youth movement,” reads a description from Converse. “The music scene exploded with a new sound, attitude and look. The Sex Pistols brought the chaos, becoming one of the most influential bands of all time. We celebrate this legendary London band with the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Sex Pistols.”
