Converse Makes Cobain Sneakers

Jeez, can you believe this...

Converse is currently producing a limited-edition series of Kurt Cobain-branded footwear as part of the company’s 100th anniversary sales campaign, dubbed “Welcome to the Converse Century.”

Each shoe will come peppered with drawings and writings of the late Nirvana front man that were published in 2002’s Journals

The product line comes with the full cooperation of Courtney Love, who initially green-lit the project, as well as a previous 2007 auction of the dead rock star’s memorabilia “to make a lot of money.”
