Is there a sneaker more beloved than the Chuck Taylor high-top? Favored by everyone from James Dean to Kurt Cobain, the simple shoe is a wholly American, totally hip pop culture icon. So, of course, it makes perfect sense that Converse would team up with the Andy Warhol Foundation to release a limited-edition run of Warhol-inspired kicks.

The artist's most recognizable works—including his Campbell's Soup Cans (in tomato, black bean and vegetable)—are printed across the canvas Chucks, which are available online for $65 to $90. Yours truly just picked up a pair of fire truck red tomato can high-tops in a brazen bid to exponentially increase my cool factor. Get yours now before they sell out.
