Title: King Diamond Shoe Design Poll
Post by: King Diamond on July 08, 2011, 12:24:07 pm
Hail Everyone,
 
 
This poll is being conducted because the manufacturers of the KD and MF shoes have shown interest in re-releasing the sneakers in a proper way, meaning, they would be available worldwide on the internet.
If you have any interest in this type of product, please indicate which of the following designs you'd prefer by voting in two separate polls for King Diamond and Mercyful Fate on Facebook here: http://www.facebook.com/pages/King-Diamond-Mercyful-Fate/10077528421 and here: http://www.facebook.com/kingdiamondofficial
 
Stay Heavy,
 
King.

I voted for "Abigail" but I would love to see Fatal Portrait and as what everyone else is saying, the banned cover of Conspiracy. Maybe for the holidays you could do the "No Presents For Christmas" image with the reindeer, I'd definetly wear those during the holidays to show my spirit. :D :king: \m/

This!

Damn I hope they go thru with it. The ones I bought were too small for my feet, so I can't wear them. If I get some that fit, I'll be able to let my other ones go. My wife likes them too, and she's been bugging me to get her a pair. She's not even a big metal fan, but she does like KD and MF. So make it so King, I want one of each set thats released.  :king:

Pssssstttttt....the more votes, the more chances are that they'll make the shoes. The more shoes they make, might put a little extra cash in Kings pocket.

So vote damnit!  :D

I think a brand new design would be killer, especially one featuring the whole band (most recent line-up).

Hi King

Abigail is a great design and I also think Fatal Portrait would be absolutely killer (even though HOG and Voodoo are my fave albums).  Also, which design of shoe are you planning on releasing?  I have four pairs of Iron Maidens "slip on" shoes...this style is super comfortable plus the design does not get hidden by jeans.  If you release this style of sneaker I will surely purchase all KD designs and an MF as well.

I thought it was a bit bizarre as well when I first heard it. I realized something though, King is one of the most unique musicians out there so knowing that, he wanted to something unique for us fans. Though I am surprised more commercial metal bands never bothered to put out shoes. I know Iron Maiden and Metallica had one or two pairs each (they weren't very expensive either) but I don't think they ever did too successful with them as I have never seen anyone wearing them EVER. :gah:

I bought all of the Maiden ones just because I collect shit like that but would I never actually wear them.

I'm looking at them now on Google. I had no idea they had so many different album covers as shoes. I had only seen the "Killers" and "Powerslave" ones. They look badass. Did they do every album as a pair of shoes?
Title: Re: King Diamond Shoe Design Poll
Post by: Chagosomar on July 11, 2011, 02:09:14 pm
i think the normal cover for "conspiracy" would actually be really cool. just a big picture of King's face.
Title: Re: King Diamond Shoe Design Poll
Post by: Sneaky on July 11, 2011, 03:55:57 pm
I have four pairs of Maiden slip-ons: The Trooper, Piece of Mind, Powerslave and Killers...all the designs they released.

I'm 37 and yet I proudly wear these shoes to the office, when I play cricket, go out, to the gym, pretty much everywhere.

They are stylish and enable me to demonstrate my support for the band in another way. My mates now expect me in no shoe other than my Maidens vans. And a big one too, women love them. A colourful, stylish, subtle way to stay metal.

the slip-on style, repeat, the slip-on style, are the design to go for...the whole image is visible.

And yes...Conspiracy would be very cool. The brighter the colours the better (like Powerslave)

I had a pair of the Iron Maiden vans, Powerslave version, and Slayer also had their own set of shoes, but I forgot what one I had, all I know is after wearing 'em for almost two years the art on the Slayer shoes was completely worn out :P

Two years? That's pretty good quality for shoes if you ask me. I saw the Slayer ones while browsing Google. I saw saw AC/DC, Motorhead and of course KISS!  :D

It was either a full two years or a year and a half, but I do know they survived a full year of high-school, I was pretty much the only kid at school with those shoes \m/, and they were pretty damn comfy too, I think I might have to get another pair :P Although unlike Sneaky the shoes I had were more along the line of skate shoes, still awesome though \m/

Yeah, I know what you mean. Most of the skateboard companies make shoes for bands. The King Diamond/Mercyful Fate ones were made by Circa which is a pretty well known skateboarding shoe brand.

King says there's going to be proper distribution through he internet, I hope so, cause I couldn't even find the last batch, and if I did they were sold out :(. Would actually like to have a pair of band shoes, as stated earlier my Slayer shoes and my Maiden shoes all faded, no color in them at all :(

I think one of the coolest things would be like an old Metallica concert shirt I used to have. Think it was from Master of Puppets, and it had a little bit from each album cover on it. I know we are talking shoes, much smaller area, and King, much larger musical library, but it would be cool if they could incorperate a little bit of all his albums in the deisgns.
