cobain-sneaks.jpg Because there aren’t enough “Commodify Your Dissent” jokes out there, the Daily Swarm is reporting that Converse plans to release a line of Kurt Cobain-inspired sneakers as part of the company’s 100th-anniversary celebration. Unlike the Doc Martens campaign from last year, this line of footwear is approved by Courtney Love, perhaps because Cobain loved One-Stars so much, he decided to die in them. I guess I could be all “blah blah blah capitalism” about this, but instead I’m trying to come up with a list of sneakers that would commemorate other important moments of the past 100 years.
