We’ve seen a fair amount of animal print offerings this year, with Vans, adidas, and Nike all taking a walk on the wild side with safari looking sneakers. Well Converse has another pair to add to that list – the glamb x Converse Jack Purcell Zipper Mid – which comes in an all leopard print upper. The inspiration for these may not be immediately apparent, but Japanese brand glamb created them as a tribute to Kurt Cobain, and a quick Google image search should show you some photos of the grunge god rocking a jacket with a similar motif and most likely a pair of Converse. If that’s not enough for you there are tiny music notes dotted around the print to drive home the tribute and the side zipper definitely gives them a 90’s feel. Hit the jump for more photos of this wild Jack Purcell Zipper Mid, which should be hitting Japanese retailers in August. via shoesmaster.
