Nirvana Frontman's Lyrics to Appear on Shoes, Not Ad Campaign

By Published on .

A week and a half ago, we mentioned Billboard's story that Converse would be using Kurt Cobain's lyrics in an upcoming ad campaign. According to a person familiar with the product launch, this isn't the case, although we do now know that the shoes will be available in May and will be priced at $50 - $65. They will also feature lyrics taken straight from his published notebooks, including songs such as "Come As You Are." Below the jump, photos of all three iterations: Chuck Taylor All Stars, Jack Purcells and One Stars, in white and black.
