Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
Converse Inc. and The Andy Warhol Foundation have teamed up to debut a limited edition Converse Andy Warhol All Star Chuck ‘70—a near facsimile of the original work Warhol did in his Converse All Star piece during 1984-1986 (which is now on view at the Andy Warhol Museum), hand-screeing his own pair of Chuck Taylors.
“We’re excited to release the Converse Andy Warhol All Star Chuck ‘70 sneaker and bring to life Warhol’s original work done on the iconic Chuck Taylor,” said Damion Silver, Converse All Star Design Director. “We’re celebrating creativity, self-expression, and of course, paying homage to the vibrant legacy of Andy Warhol.”
Limited to only 200 pairs, this off-white high-top shoe went on sale at the end of last month.
“Andy Warhol’s creative output which includes unique works of art such as Converse All Star has left an enduring legacy,” said Michael Hermann of The Andy Warhol Foundation. “The Converse Andy Warhol All Star Chuck ’70 limited edition celebrates this work of art inspiring us to ignore convention and be whatever we want to be.”
