as part of their centennial celebration, it was announced that Converse will be manufacturing Kurt Cobain sneakers in May, no i am not making this up. they don’t come with rifles though, so if you feel like doing the last thing he did while wearing a pair of Converse sneakers, you have to buy your own rifle.

the shoes will feature artwork and scribbles from Cobain’s personal notebooks. they will also have wear and fray detailing and Kurt Cobain’s signature embroidered on the shoe.

to quote Converse, “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.”

I personally think that these shoes will be a huge success for Converse… now, on the other hand- courtney love is only doing this to make money…. and for that- i hate her.. … and i also think that she had him killed… she got someone to do it for her… and she offered them $50,000 for them to do it.. theres proof in the documentary “Kurt and Courtney”…

I agree the shoes will be a huge success. I respectfully disagree about Courtney having Kurt killed however. This is an old story making the rounds for years, and I don’t believe for one millisecond that it is true. For one thing he would have been worth a lot more alive to Courtney than dead ~
