Fans of the reunited Black Sabbath can now wear their heroes on their feet thanks to a new deal with Converse.

The heavy rockers have partnered with the footwear giants to create a new Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Black Sabbath sneaker collection.

The five new styles, inspired by the band’s album titles including “Paranoid” and “Never Say Die!,” will launch this spring.

The designs in the collection will feature special detailing such as stitched Black Sabbath logos and graphic lining.
