Not too long ago Converse unveiled their Kurt Cobain Inspired Collection–high-top and low-top Chuck Taylor sneakers with Cobain-like scrawl and scribble on the canvass of the shoe.

Not long after, they released the Grateful Dead Inspired Collection (below), featuring variations of the Dead’s skull and bear logos plastered on the side of a signature Chuck Taylor All-Star.
If Converse can take the liberty to craft shoes inspired by two legendary bands, than why can’t I design a sneaker to pay homage to my favorite IFC.com political correspondent Will Rabbe (sorry Sarah).
So for the first time ever, drum roll please, here is my brand new line of Converse sneaker: The Will Rabbe Inspired Collection. No doubt I’ll be wearing these come presidential campaign time!
