15 minutes? Not even his death could end Andy Warhol's fame. Converse are continuing their relationship with the Andy Warhol Foundation and are dropping a third consecutive season of Chuck Taylors, as well as apparel featuring the pop-art master's work.

The collection isn't online quite yet, but check back soon at Converse's Warhol section, since these should be up shortly.
