Kurt Cobain-themed trainer



Converse have come up with a new way to boost sales: by creating a line dedicated to Kurt Cobain. Way to work that angle, Converse. Kurt was wearing their brand when he committed suicide in 1994. The shoes feature artwork borrowed from Cobain's personal notebooks. "Distressed in the way Kurt Cobain wore them, the shoes display his hopes, dreams and lyrics from amazing songs such as Come As You Are."

Courtney Love played a part in the line by personally reviewing and approving all of the designs. The kicks will be available in May. So get out your flannel shirt and rock out!

I was shocked when I read about this. I remember when she "did not, and would not, approve of such a use of Kurt's name and likeness," when approached by Doc Martins.

It is quite a strange move, poor kurt would be turning in his grave if he saw all of this marketing
