Pulling from two opposite ends of the rock & roll universe, Converse has announced its upcoming Fall 2008 Footwear Collection that pays homage to The Grateful Dead and Kurt Cobain. The iconic sneaker company has designed shoes to honor those two pioneers in music to help celebrate their centennial.
About the rock & roll sneakers, Converse Global Footwear Creative Director Scott Patt said: "As we continue into the second half of the Converse Century with our Fall 2008 Footwear Collection, we celebrate the originals who have never been afraid to disrupt the status quo. They are the renegades of sound, the league-changers, champions of underachievement, the paint drippers and those with flawless style. These pioneers follow what's inside and do what they believe to be right. They are the ones who have created the last 100 years of Converse history and will be the ones to define the next 100 years."
You will be able to snag a pair of these Grateful Dead and Kurt Cobain sneakers at various specialty retailers, online and of course, at the nearest Journeys in your mall.
