Japanese brand Glamb align in the creation of this late summer release with Converse. Inspired by the fashion sense of legendary Seattle grunge rocker Kurt Cobain, the sneaker is based on the relatively lesser-seen Jack Purcell Mid. While Cobain’s affinity with Converse has long been documented, the Purcell Mid was a model that probably didn’t have the opportunity to grace his feet unlike the more ubiquitous original Jack Purcell and All Star. Two colors are based off of a leopard cardigan and map printed tees, both of which will release in August via Glamb and Converse Japan stockists.
