I shit you not. Converse is coming out with a limited-edition Kurt Cobain series of shoes that will be sold exclusively at Foot Locker.
This was approved by Kurt’s heiress, Courtney Love, I guess so she can feed whatever habit she’s got now.
This makes me sick. When I was in high school, wearing converse wasn’t about being cool or trendy. Hell, a pair of converse cost about 10 bucks. We wore them because they were CHEAP! They were cheap and we were badass.
They even have a shoe that already looks like shit when you buy it.
And a shoe that cute little Avril-Lavigne-listenin’ “punk” girls are going to wear.
And the sad thing is, rich kids who don’t know any better are going to buy this shit because they think it will somehow preserve Kurt’s memory. When the sad truth is this is in defiance of everything Kurt stood for.
