Art doesn’t simply belong in a frame buried inside of a gallery; it’s meant to be outdoors for all to experience and enjoy as well. With this understanding, brands like Converse are the perfect blank canvas for taking artist collaborations to the street.
Their latest collaboration combines Andy Warhol and Chuck Taylor for a high-powered new silhouette that features the classic style of both icons. The Converse Chuck Taylor is given a white leather base with black accents on the foxing and laces while Warhol’s infamous banana image graces the side of the sneaker. The Converse logo on the medial side of the shoe also gets a bit of a revamp with a black background and yellow accents to further complement the style.
These are available right now at Converse for $80, which is more expensive than a day at the museum but way cheaper than a Warhol original.
