The Daniel Johnston “Worried Shoes” design for Converse that never was.
From MonsterFresh.com — “Clearly, someone from Converse took an interest in Daniel and thought that it would be a great idea to produce the shoe. We agree that it was, however, let’s not forget that Nike purchased Converse back in 2003 and, by definition, a corporation is all about making money. They clearly didn’t see the appeal or value in producing them but, much like when there was a bidding war over Johnston‘s music during his days in the mental ward, I believe that Dick is probably right about his feelings that more offers will be pouring in once Daniel proves that he may be marketable on a larger scale.”
A pretty interesting story, feel free to read it in full HERE.
