    Gorillaz co-creator Jamie Hewlett is working with Converse to create limited edition shoes inspired by the band's cartoon avatars. Pumped up kicks, you might say?

    Each of Hewlett's four designs for Converse will reflect the band members' individual idiosyncrasies, as well as the group's look, so says Rolling Stone. In February, the Gorillaz will release a new song with Converse as part of the company's ongoing "Three Artists, One Song" campaign.

    Do you want to own a pair of Gorillaz-designed Chuck Taylors?
