Taking inspiration from the artist who once screen-printed his own custom pair of Chuck Taylors, Converse has just announced its new 2015 All Star Andy Warhol Collection featuring a series of high-top and low-cut kicks wrapped in some of his most iconic soup-inspired pieces.

Available starting on February 7, Converse's Andy Warhol collection will range in price from $35 to $90. And before you cry foul of the company taking advantage of the artist's legacy, keep in mind that a portion of all the proceeds will actually go directly to the The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. So you could be helping a struggling artist who might one day find their own creations wrapped around a shoe. [Converse via Taxi via Konbini]

So how many hack degrees of separation is this? Warhol was awful and a hack. He's no Lichtenstein, who was also a hack. A better hack.

"The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts"...

...should be burned to the ground because very little of those words go together. (not that I'm actually advocating that, please don't put me on a list please don't mark me NSA I don't want to burn anything this is satire le suis tee hee etc.)
