I was looking at some shoes today and saw this travesty (pictured below)
Now, Kurt Cobain wasn’t necessarily fond of the media to put it lightly. Some even speculated that his distaste for the media’s attention was one of the [many] reasons for his tragic end. Courtney Love is behind these ridiculous shoes and has obviously decided to cash in on Kurt in a most distasteful way. Of course, this isn’t the first time.
For a cool 59.99 you can pick up these cheaply made converse sneakers that boast a wonderfully cliched classic distressed vibe !
Here’s the write-up:

Everyone involved with these sneakers should be ashamed of themselves. Of course this is nothing new.
I guess if you can’t afford the $59.99 for the sneakers, you could always pick this up for $20:
…give it to your kids, it’ll help them learn how to smoke fashionably.
