“Greetings from Tromaville!”
Chicago-born hip hop artist and entrepreneur Juan “Big Herc” Hernandez is gracing Troma fans, horror fans, and sneakerheads alike with two kick-ass pair of kicks; including a limited edition run of Toxic Crusaders high tops and The Toxic Avenger slip ons!
Born from The Toxic Avenger movieverse that first debuted back in the 80s – which currently includes three films, a musical, comic books and a video game – Toxic Crusaders was a Saturday-morning cartoon show first launched in 1991. The series followed the main character of Toxie and his ragtag band of crusaders, who did battle with various polluters of the environment.
These high tops are a very limited edition run. Only 250 pairs were made available and stock is now low. Each pair will contain a distinct stamp on the box, indicating its numerical order.
The Toxic Avenger slip ons feature the iconic movie poster artwork from Toxie’s second feature film, and are also a very limited edition run. Only 300 pairs are available! Each pair also come in a hand numbered shoe box, indicating its numerical order. They also come with an exclusive, hand numbered trading card and a Toxie shot glass. The shoes have three different color combinations and kid’s sizes are also available.
The going price for each of these sick kicks is $60, and you can only get them at bigherc.com! Speaking of which, you should make certain to bookmark and visit Big Herc Collections often because he’s got some more exclusive merchandise coming our way – from both The Toxic Avengers and Toxic Crusaders brands – in the very near future. So stay tuned!
