Converse Chuck Taylor All Star "Warhol"

The worlds of art and sneakers have converged once again in the form of the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star “Warhol” sneaker, the footwear of choice for anyone enjoying their 15 minutes of fame.

The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star “Warhol” sneakers take their visual cues not from Warhol’s famous likeness or even one of his more popular works, but instead a less well-known work by the artist entitled Brillo Box. That in turn makes the sneakers appear at first glance (especially to glancers not well-schooled in Warhol history) as a tribute to Brillo Soap Pads—with Rust Resister—instead of to Warhol, a development that I can’t help but think the late artist would be amused by.

They don’t appear to be available in North America as of yet, but you can purchase a pair of Converse Chuck Taylor All Star “Warhol” sneakers from French retailer Colette right here, where the sneakers are priced at about $95.
