Converse Unveils Chuck Taylor All Star ‘Wiz Khalifa’ Collection
Converse has officially unveiled their anticipated collaborative collection with Wiz Khalifa -- the Fall 2013 Chuck Taylor All-Star Wiz Khalifa Collection.
Featuring 12 new styles inspired by the artist's rebellious and fashion-forward style, the collabo marks Khalifa's first footwear collection. It incorporates several unique accents including the Wiz Khalifa collection signature logo tab on each design, while staying true to the iconic Chuck Taylor All Star silhouette.
The rapper's use of the word "Taylor" hails from the high school that he attended, which, coincidentally, is where his long-time affinity for Converse Chuck Taylor All Star sneakers began.
"I've always gravitated toward Converse because of how solid the brand is. It's clean and it's classic," said Wiz. "I was excited to collaborate with the team at Converse because I felt they really got my individual style and vision. The sneakers in my collection are dope and I'm excited to share them with my fans."
The collection boasts various customized versions of the Chuck Taylor All-Star Hi- and Low-Top silhouettes... and sports premium leather accents, canvas uppers, and camo and animal prints.
The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Wiz Khalifa collection drops August 23rd at select retailers and Converse.com.
