New Balance has produced a Joy Division tribute sneaker, with tongue and insole elements based on the design of Joy Division’s iconic first album cover. There seems to be some uncertainty about whether they'll go into full production or not, but either way it strikes me as a curious choice for sneaker inspiration, if you're (a) familiar with the band's music and (b) know what they named their band after.
