Converse's Newest Andy Warhol Sneaker Collection Is a Nod to the Artist's Best Work
Andy Warhol’s infamous Factory may be closed, but there’s still an affordable way to get a taste of the legend’s colorful works of art. For the third time, Converse has teamed up with the late pop artist’s Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts to deliver the latest Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Andy Warhol collection, a line of in-your-face kicks that’ll blow any art geek and sneakerhead’s mind.
Ranging from $80 to $85, the low- and high-top selection of classic Chuck Taylors is just that; however, these come drowned in graphics from Warhol’s “Cow” and Flowers” paintings, along with other works expressive of his pop art.
In the past, Converse has turned to the artist’s Campbell soup print for inspiration. So what’s different now? The latest collection also includes graphic T-shirts with patterns similar to those illustrated on the sneakers. See the standout shoes below—and visit converse.com to see the full range.
