Although fears of being considered a “sellout” weighed heavily on KURT COBAIN while he was alive, the late Nirvana frontman has posthumously lent his name and signature to a new series of special-edition sneakers by Converse. Or, to be scrupulously accurate: COURTNEY LOVE has lent Kurt Cobain’s name and signature to the Nike-owned company. The shoes are decorated with scrawlings from Cobain’s journals; it would appear that the insole of one model reads, “punk rock means freedom.” I expect that this product will be consumed by many people with a robust understanding of the ideals of punk.
