Converse – Kurt Cobain Collection – Chuck Taylor All Star Lyric Edition (White)
Though the unfortunate circumstances behind his death in 1994, Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain remained as one of the most prolific songwriters in modern time. His often dark and emotional songs not only reflected his tortured soul, but acted as an outlet of expression for many of those who shared the identical struggles in their own lives. Through this process, Cobain propelled the Indie/grunge music genre to its height and influenced a generation of artists. His legacy continues to inspire today.
As a tribute to this musical great, Converse is launching the Kurt Cobain collection. Comprised of models Chuck Taylor All Star, Jack Purcell, and One Star, all of which wore by Cobain in his numerous appearances on and off stage. Each distressed in the way Cobain wore them and comes with various details, like sketches he made in his notebook and lyrics to memorable songs such as “Come As You Are”. All 3 versions are embroidered with Corbain’s signature. With the lyrical version available in both black and white, and rest of the collection in black. The Converse Kurt Cobain Collection will retail from US$ 50 – US$ 60, and made available at specialty retailers starting in May.
