Kurt Cobain Converse Collection

Kurt Cobain ConverseConverse has given Kurt Cobain his own signature collection of shoes. Now available and shipping worldwide at Converse.com, Converse is currently producing a limited-edition series of Kurt Cobain footwear as part of the company’s 100th anniversary sales campaign, dubbed “Welcome to the Converse Century.” Each shoe is littered with drawings and writings that were published in 2002’s Kurt Cobain Journals. Several new models of Kurt Cobain shoes are coming with the Converse One Star model and a series of high-top Chucks already confirmed, according to NirvanaClub.com.

Distressed in the way Kurt Cobain wore them, the shoes provide a rarely seen glimpse into the head of this musical and lyrical genius with sketches that display his hopes, dreams and lyrics from amazing songs such as Come As You Are.

To further pay tribute to the late singer, three of the Converse shoes that Cobain was often seen wearing will be reflected in the new collection which includes versions of Chuck Taylor All Star, Jack Purcell and One Star shoes. To make the collection even more unique, they’ll have wear and fray detailing and Kurt Cobain’s signature subtly embroidered on the shoe’s outer.The shoes will be made available in black and white versions and should retail for around $50 – $65. The product line comes with the full cooperation of Courtney Love and the Estate of Kurt Cobain. Converse will release the full details of the shoes in April.

  1. to “head” punk rock means freedom is a quote from Kurt Cobain and if you have even a shredd of respect you will not call it gay

  2. i think this is an ok idea but really give him and his fam some privacy and to think ppl put there feet on his thoughts is kind of degusting:(

  3. k, so basically, i think everyone who’s saying kurt hated commercialism and liked his privacy and would in turn hate these is right. and everyone who’s saying that it’s a great way to respect him is way off! really, if he wanted this shit to be known to the public then he would have released it when he was alive!i love and miss him like he was my husband (i know that’s weird but i feel as though i have a connection with him)and i feel disrespected for him about these shoes.

  4. you’re totally right savannah. but then again everyone on this site is doing what kurt hated… obssesing over him! hypocrites!!!

  5. whole o kurt’s life ,a part o him wanted to be understood by people but he wasn’t. To top it, still people in general (not the fans) hardly kno anythin bout him and make mockery o his death ,call him names ,i think all cobain fans shud b happy that people now can kno a lil more bout KURDT,we owe him that much , its a great effort

  6. I saw this collection and I realized that says limited edition but I would like to get under any price
    where can I get urgent

  7. OMG all of you people,Kurt’s notes are already published in books.These shoes are awesome bought some for 60$ and they’re worth the money.and i dont care about courtney,I just like to have a Kurt Cobain shoe!

  8. These shoes go against the sentiment that punk rock stands for and anyone who is a fan knows this.

    Re. supporting Kurt’s memory, your only supporting Courtney Love and Converse’s pockets.

    Re. ‘its okay because its in the dairy anyway’ those very private writings are in the context of what he was thinking, feeling and his inspirations. You are LITERALLY walking on his work.

    Too bad the dead can’t defend themselves…I doubt Kurt would have accepted this. See also Hunter S. Thompson, Ian Curtis, and Sid Vicious chucks. Apparently death is hot right now.

    Also chuck shoes are made shit and they fall apart easily.

  9. This site supposed to be a site which RESPECTS Cobain’s memory, but let there be rock, let there be ca$h, let’s sell and sell and sell ’till his corpse is drained! How come a tribute site supports this kind of exploitation? These shoes are another PATHETIC example of cashing-in a dead’s man life, work and memory. This attitude is worse than the worst! It’s so disgusting I wanna throw up! Everything that Kurt HATED are now on sale by mega companies and bearing his name as a trademark. What the fuck man? What the fuck? The UTTER PATHETIC SHITTY ATTITUDE towards any person. Exploiting EVERYTHING for cash and in the same time pretending to pay respect to Kurt. Wake up people and DON’T be a part in this disgrace, they want your money ONLY, they are so glad Cobain’s dead so they can sell him more and more! WAKE THE FUCK UP people and have the DIGNITY not to be part in it or simply FUCK OFF, you are one of “them”!

    ps: I was never a Nirvana fan, I just happent to repsect Cobain.

  10. Just saw it after I posted the first comment! These fuckin shoes will have parts of Cobain’s diary???????? Great!!!!! Kids, have your parent’s credit cards ready, your “god” is on sale, pay for the shoes so converse can pay the tribute to Cobain and then party with that bitch who gave the ok… It’s getting greater and greater. I’m wondering why they just don’t dig up the body, cut it in pieces and sell it to the “fans”. They could sell it by the gram, like heroin, yeah, sell the dope to the “fans”, make a church, wouldn’t THAT be SUPER-COOL or fuckin what?

    I’m REALLY wondering WHAT the fuck some of you people understood from Cobain EXCEPT the image? Huh? But after all, isn’t EVERYTHING about life style?

  11. I HATE all of them except the one with his signature, the rest are kinda disrespectful in a way i think, but i dont think theres anything wrong with the ones with the autograph. ALTHOUGH i DEFINITELY HATE courtney and i think it sucks shes makin the money off of these

  12. I think they’re neat. Hero-worship is a human aspect we all share in, if you don’t like them then don’t get them, and if you love them then buy them. It’s not disrespectful to parade about in shoe with a name on them, after all THEY’RE FREAKIN CHUCKS 🙂 stop griping about the spirit of the thing. Love it.
