Converse shoes has announced plans to release a new line of Ramones-themed Chuck's in support of the Project (RED) charity initiative. The line features a special pre-beat-up pair of Chucks and includes The Ramones patch replacing the traditional Chuck Taylor patch.
Project RED was formed by Bono and Bobby Shriver to raise awareness and money for The Global Fund by produce (PRODUCT)RED branded products. A percentage of each (PRODUCT)RED product sold is given to The Global Fund. The money helps women and children affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa.
