The Cement Shoes were a hardcore band from New Jersey founded in 1996. Over the course of five years, the band put out four releases, including a full length in 2001. The band played across the Mid Atlantic, from CBGB's to Pipeline, with some of the biggest names in the scene. Across their 16 recorded songs, they included influences from everything to contemporary hardcore to ska. They broke up in 2001. This original The Cement Shoes shirt, deadstock with a few light marks from prolonged storage, is an early tee from the NJHC band.
