The KedsWhitney collection is breaking new ground when it comes to art. Instead of art on a canvas, their shoes are the creations that should be framed.

The KedsWhitney collection sees the shoe giant and the museum powerhouse team with conceptual artist Jenny Holzer. The results are toned down colorways imprinted with the thoughts of the artist, making for a super cool pair of shoes.
