The Warhol/Converse partnership has roots back to the 1980s, when Warhol silkscreened his own pair of Chuck Taylors. Shoes have also played an integral part in his works.

Converse All Star design director Damion Silver said: "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 range will be priced between $35 - $90.
