Kurt Cobain Converse Collection

Kurt Cobain Converse Sneakers

To say that some Nirvana and Cobain fans were not happy to hear about an upcoming release of Kurt Cobain edition Converse sneakers is a major understatement. We received quite a few pieces of hate email thanks in large part to a rock station telling listeners that we were behind it! (We won’t put you on blast like you did to us).

The collection of Cobain kicks feature two parts – one are “vintagized” versions of the Chuck Taylor, One Star, and Jack Purcell while the other is a collection of Chucks covered in Cobain’s sketches and writings from his journal entries.?? Converse worked from beginning to end with Kurt’s widow Courtney Love on the project.?? Converse shoes were a major part of Cobain’s life.?? From living underneath a bridge all the way to MTV’s Unplugged and sadly until his end, Cobain wore Converse every step of the journey.
