Usually we hate corporate tie-ins that try to find a link between, say, shoes and revolutionary music (cough, Nike's Beatles commercial, cough).
But Converse's Chuck Taylor All-Star sneakers have been a part of rock 'n' roll culture even before the Ramones paired them with leather jackets.
So we're not gonna hate too hard on Converse's new Music Collection line.
The shoes come in 14 designs bearing Kurt Cobain, Blondie, the Clash and Metallica imprints.
The subtle ones are actually pretty cool. I'd definitely wear the Clash high-tops. —Michael Gallucci (follow me on Twitter @mgallucci)
