Ever think to yourself: “Gee, I wish I had some shoes that were inspired by a video game. Hell, I want some that are actually in a video game!” No? Well neither have I to be honest, but thanks to Heyday Footwear, THQ, and Volition, now you can live the dream. I present to you the “Super Shift Premium” in “Saints Row: The Third Purple”. These kicks can be purchased not only in-game, but also in real life.

Here is the official description of the shoes:

The Saints leader Johnny Gat, known for his swag, admired Heyday’s hustle in the shoe game, and wisely invested his ill gotten gains in the brand. This “legitimate” business gave the Saints their own sneaker from Heyday in signature Saints purple python leather and premium white patent leather on the eye stay, heel, mid-foot velcro strap and removable Super Strap which features a 2 color, embossed Saints Row The Third logo. The python finished calf leather has multiple shades of purple and metallic gold flecks and snake scale details much like an actual python. Each pair is unique and may look slightly different than the photos shown here but every pair is AMAZING.

The Super Shift’s uniquely designed tongue can be snapped on to the collar with Heyday’s gold finish custom logo hardware or unsnapped and worn loose, with or without the Super Strap. White flat waxed laces and gold finish eyelets complete the look.

The low profile white and purple rubber cup soles form the Heyday logo when placed together, have flex grooves in the forefoot like technical running shoes and have 360 degree stitching make for a completely secure mechanical bond from upper to sole.

A plush white terry cloth lining and an anti-odor anatomically molded memory foam foot bed featuring the Saints Row crest and Heyday logos make these the most comfortable, neck breaking kicks you will ever wear whether in Steelport or in your own ‘hood.

And how much are these you ask? Well they will set you back $160, and they have already sold out of most sizes. So, what do you guys think of the shoes? (I’m almost afraid to ask.)
