Converse 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 companyâ€™s 100th anniversary sales campaign, dubbed â€œWelcome to the Converse Century.â€ Each shoe is littered with drawings and writings that were published in 2002â€™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.

you guys are such a bunch of fuckin complainers, jesus. its not like they fucking cut him up and put him in a case for someone to carry around going “look, he’s dead!” its a fucking shoe with his writing on it. Disgusting is you people thinking you know him. you wouldn’t complain if they put this shit on a shirt. but they decided to do something both good for the company and trademark of what he wore. that’s all you know him by. none of you commenting here knew him personally and know “what he would have wanted”. so please, be fucking quiet, and if you can’t accept these as just shoes and not a defacation on his life then please, shut up and dont buy them.
i dont think kurt would have liked any of you guys pretending like you knew him, either..you’re all here talking about what he would and wouldn’t have wanted and you all overlook the fact that by your standards he would have hated you all acting like you knew him more than these shoes.
i agree with ‘grungemama’.
none of youse know him personally, sure you’ve read a bit of his journal, SO WHAT.
he would want people to be original but knowing that people are still looking up to his to this day, would be something for him to be proud of.
if he didn’t want anyone to see his journals he would have gotten rid of them before he had killed himself. think about it for a while… stop acting like you know him when you clearly don’t.
Where can I find the Lyrics one’s in New York State? I’m aiming for Long Island and NYC and it’s boroughs to buy them but if there is anywhere i can get the black lyrics shoe (whether it’s in a store or online etc.) then whatever.
omg i luv those shoes!!!! need them, want them, luv them!!!!!
Te amo kurt cobain…!!!
estaras siempre en mi corazon
i miss you.. kurt …..
this is crap by the fucking coutney, cobain knew that this would happen when he’s gone. he knew how things will go on like thise. coutney love suxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
i really wish he’s alive. RIP
love you kurt..
wish i can see you in heaven!!
I need all!!!!!!!!!!! I need!!!!!!!!
All i can sau about what everything ive read so far that is a good portion of you are not real fans the ones who comes to his defense are not even understading of him he never wanted someone to speak for him even after death who are all of you to say thats not what he would or would not want you never knew him and even with the journals and books none of you will ever know him he left his life a mystery yea its sad that courtney published his journals for money not for the fans but she dont own anymore than fifty % of the rights the remaining band owns the rest converse is only there for the money too and those who want the shoes to be closer to kurt your idiots i love nirvana just as much as the next fan but what are you getting closer too? yea i will own a pair cause i like them and cause i like nirvana but ill never wear them ill keep them all i have to say is that if kurt wanted not to be famous he could of stopped makong records and told the record company to fuck off and to keep the royalties for nevermind and of he wanted to keep his life so personal he shouldnt of killed himself if he did if he didnt then you think he would give two shits what any of you thought about him?
hola a todos los seguidores de nirvana
soy colombiana y me gustaria saber en donde puedo comprar los converse edicion kurt Cobain
Kurt cobain en aurait rien eu Ã foutre, il aurait certainement pas choisis de faire un truc comme Ã§a pour faire de la tune avec, mais il en aurait rien eu Ã foutre. C’est un gÃ©nie et un artiste, il avait besoin de libertÃ© et on l’en a privÃ©, c’est se qui l’a tuÃ©. Mais Ã§a, Ã§a l’aurait bien fait marrÃ©… Bref, je les trouve cool, je suis fan de kurt cobain et de convers, je suis tombÃ© dessus sur ebay, ben je les ai prises ! c’est fout 90% des gens qui postent des commentaires ici sont des bouffons…
