Kenny Scharf, known for his vivid, cartoonish paintings, installations, and sculptures (you may have seen his work, Squirtz, on view outside The Standard hotel), was one of the first talents to bring street culture into mainstream contemporary art. So it’s fitting that in celebration of his new show, Kolors, which opens at Paul Kasmin Gallery tonight, Scharf has teamed up with accessories designer Alejandro Ingelmo to create a pair of streetwise high-tops. “I like to make people take a second look at something they think is familiar, and draw out imperfections, which, to me, is the real beauty,” the artist told The his and hers kicks are offered in black, white, and slate, and feature one of the artist’s signature monster drawings. With three eyes and a few missing teeth, Scharf’s bright red creature—which he created specifically for the collaboration—is indeed imperfect. But that’s what makes him, and the shoes, so endearing.

Alejandro Ingelmo x Kenny Scharf’s shoes are priced between $395 and $450, and are available now at the Paul Kasmin Shop and on Kolors is on view at the Paul Kasmin Gallery through May 4.
