Kurt Cobain Converse Collection

One of rock’s most prolific songwriters and reluctant successes, Kurt Cobain humbly took the underground grunge movement mainstream. In the process, he changed his generation and left the world with a legacy of songs that continue to inspire generations to come. To honor this music great, Converse debuts the Kurt Cobain collection of shoes that feature artwork and scribbles borrowed from his personal notebooks. Distressed in the way Kurt Cobain wore them, the shoes provide a rarely seen glimpse into the head of this musical and lyrical genius with sketches that display his hopes, dreams and lyrics from amazing songs such as “Come As You Are”. Often pictured wearing Chuck Taylor All Star, Jack Purcell or One Star shoes, the collection includes versions of all three shoes with wear and fray detailing and Kurt Cobain’s signature subtly embroidered on the shoe’s outer. Available in black and white versions with lyric, notebook scribbles or distressed detailing, shoes in this collection retail for MSRP $50 – $65 and will be available nationwide at specialty retailers and online at www.converse.com beginning in May.

Julia Hederus x K-Swiss

Oki-Ni is pleased to present Hederus for K-Swiss. The work of rising design star Julia Hederus, this new limited edition footwear collection is inspired by the style of K-Swiss wearing Hackney youth’s – who each add unique stylistic twists to their outfits. Hederus’s work has already drawn favourable comparisons with the ‘clean and clever’ approach of Belgian menswear futurists, whilst her minimal yet subtly playful approach also carries distinct echoes of the Japanese school.
