Factory This! You Can Now Buy Andy Warhol-Themed Converse Sneaks
Calling sneakerheads and Andy Warhol fans: you're going to get a kick out of this piece of news. Converse and The Andy Warhol Foundation have joined forces to create an all-star sneaker capsule collection that celebrates the visionary artist in all of his glory. Converse high- and low-top Chucks have been given the classic Warhol treatment with his famous works, including his Campbell soup print, stamped all over in bold hues or black and white.
"With this collection, we aim to celebrate and foster the innovative artistic expression that's intrinsic to both Converse and Andy Warhol," says Converse All Star Design Director Damion Silver. "Andy Warhol famously created art inspired by American pop culture icons, and was a pioneer in utilizing the Chuck Taylor All Star as a blank canvas for his work. From this shared creative history grew our collaboration with Warhol."
The marriage of these two great pop culture icons is, essentially, fashion-meets-art at its best. And here's good news: the 14-piece Converse x Andy Warhol collection (between $35 and $90), which includes three tees along with the sneaks, is available as of today at converse.com and Converse stores. We advise you to run, don't walk, because these are going to go fast.
