Round Two for Tegan & Sara Collab

The indie singers will offer a second run of their popular high-top sneakers.

Macbeth Footwear is teaming up with the indie rock duo Tegan & Sara for a second shoe collaboration as part of the Macbeth Studio Project.
 
The first run of the shoe was released in February and is nearly sold out at all locations, according to the company. Now, a second run is in production and is slated for an early summer release.
 
Retailers said the shoe sparked the right mix of brand appeal with indie music cred with both fans of Macbeth and Tegan & Sara aficionados.
 
Eric Trout, skate buyer at Camarillo, Calif.-based Revolution Surf Co., said he did not carry the shoe the first time around, but he had plenty of consumers requesting it. “I get a lot of people coming in asking about Macbeth,” he said. “There’s a lot of interest in Macbeth, and a lot of the people asking for it are indie people, and that’s probably got a lot to do with Tegan & Sara.”
 
The denim high-tops are available in both black and white.
