You Can Run But You Can't HideLately, when I’ve been jogging, I seem to keep forgetting about, you know, the horror. But if you too need a reminder during your exercise sessions that “a loaded gun won’t set you free,” why not pick up these special edition New Balance Joy Division tennies? They’re snazzy white and gray sneakers with the artwork from the Div’s first album Unknown Pleasures on the tongue and the sole. Actually, it’s just a prototype, but perhaps if we all lose control we can cause enough disorder so that they’ll make these shoes before the, um, new dawn fades… ugh, are they sure a loaded gun won’t set me free?

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and billionaire owners wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2021 demands.
