On August 15th, Converse Inc. debuts the Fall 2013 Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Wiz Khalifa Collection featuring 12 new styles inspired by the artist’s rebellious and fashion-forward style. 2 of these styles will be available in Australia. The collaboration marks Khalifa’s first footwear collection and celebrates the artist’s eye for bold detail and subtle luxury.
The new collection 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.
Rapper Wiz Khalifa hails from Pittsburgh, Penn., and went from breakthrough artist to feature film star in the short span of two years. Revered mixtapes and the proliferation of Khalifa’s record label, Taylor Gang Records, propelled his rise. Khalifa’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 Khalifa. “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 Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Wiz Khalifa collection will be available exclusively at Foot Locker and retail for $140 – $150 and available in only two styles.
