Wiz Khalifa x Converse – if it ain't broke...
The sneaker brand has unveiled its Fall 2014 Wiz Khalifa sneaker collection featuring the new Converse Chuck Taylor All Star ILL.
Available in two colors, the new silhouette is inspired by the artist's rebellious individuality and fashion-forward style. This marks Wiz Khalifa's second sneaker collaboration with Converse following the successful launch of the Fall 2013 collection.
Khalifa's use of the word "Taylor" in his Taylor Gang record label is a nod to the high school that he attended, which is coincidentally where his longtime affinity for Converse Chuck Taylor All Star sneakers began. #Kismet.
"I am very excited about continuing my relationship with Converse and releasing this new sneaker collection," said Wiz Khalifa. "We spent a lot of time designing each part of the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star ILL and the end result is exactly what I wanted."
