Nirvana man gets his own Converse shoe

Kurt Cobain is to be “honoured” with his own training shoe this year.

The Nirvana frontman is to get a limited edition Converse shoe bearing his name, lyrics, writing and signature to mark the brand’s 100th anniversary, reports Brand Republic.

Unlike a Doc Martin’s campaign featuring Kurt Cobain last year, Cobain‘s widow Courtney Love has sanctioned this release.

The Cobain shoe is part of the trainer brand’s birthday celebrations, which have featured a number of other dead people. These have included Joy Division‘s Ian Curtis, writer Hunter S Thompson and the Sex PistolsSid Vicious.
