Marimekko's colorful prints have popped up everywhere from Carrie Bradshaw's swimsuits to Crate and Barrel, and now they're about to hit your feet. Converse has just teamed up with the Finnish design house on a new line of limited-edition sneakers with some serious attitude.

They've taken the European brand's signature eye-popping patterns and planted them on their classic Jack Purcell's and Chuck Taylor's, along with the line's latest addition, the sleek P.J. At $55-$75 each, these kicks are the coolest way to inject major energy into any wardrobe that's overrun with wintry blacks, grays, and browns.

Check them out below, and see why this is graphic design we can all appreciate.

Buy them here soon.
