Marr, in collaboration with PF Flyers, will design the shoe with all proceeds going to charity partners Pictor School and Cure Autism Now.

In a statement the former Smiths star, now with US chart-toppers Modest Mouse, said: “I’ve been wearing PF Flyers onstage for quite awhile and to come up with a design on a sneaker that will also benefit a charity that is important to me is an exciting opportunity.”

Only 108 pairs of the sneakers will be available in the UK and the US.
