Converse x Kurt Cobain Collection

Converse x Kurt Cobain – Chuck Taylor All Star Lyric Edition (Black)
> Buy at Journeys.com

To commemorate one of rock’s most prolific songwriters and reluctant successes, Kurt Cobain of Nirvana, Converse teamed up with Courtney Love to design a limited edition range that feature artwork and scribbles borrowed from Kurt Cobain’s personal notebooks. 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”. Often pictured wearing Chuck Taylor All Star, Jack Purcell or One Star shoes, the collection includes versions of all three shoes with wear and fray detailing and Kurt Cobain’s signature subtly embroidered on the shoe’s outer.

The collection is available in black and white versions with lyric, notebook scribbles or distressed detailing, shoes retail at $50 – $65 and sizing will be available for women and men. Look out for these shoes nationwide at specialty retailers and online at www.converse.com beginning in June (confirmed by Converse rep).

Release dates has been pushed back from May to June, but it’s definitely worth the wait – I especially like the Chuck Taylor All Star Lyric Edition in black.

edit:
A few of the Converse x Kurt Cobain kicks has dropped on Journeys.com, the Chuck Taylor All Star Lyric Edition (Black), Jack Purcell Notebook Scribbles Edition and the Chuck Taylor All Star Signature Distressed Edition. The full range should be released in June, keep checking back.
