Converse x Wiz Khalifa Collection
With the lines between music and fashion becoming ever blurred it’s no wonder that we are starting to see more and more labels collaborate with music artists for one off collections.
Earlier this year we saw Kanye team up with A.P.C and now, just in time for autumn, Converse have released a limited edition collection of Chuck Taylors in association with American hip-hop star Wiz Khalifa.
The ‘Black And Yellow’ chart topper has put his distinct, rebellious and fashion forward stamp onto twelve new designs, which marks the artist’s first foray into fashion.
“I’ve always gravitated toward Converse because of how solid the brand is. It’s clean and it’s classic, 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 makes use of two iconic silhouettes: the Chuck Taylor All Star and the All Star SWAG.
The Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars are priced at £54.99 and feature canvas uppers in a variety of colour ways, including red, green, grey and blue with contrasting soles. These are available low and hi-top styles, and come complete with a ‘WK’ leather signature logo tab, laser etched ‘WIZ’ eyelets and special wax laces.
The SWAG styles are priced at £69.99 and feature additional premium detailing such as studs and leather accents. As well as the standard solid colour uppers, they are available in a vivid ‘canimal’ (camouflage/animal) print and come complete with contrasting colour soles, which includes a red leopard design that Wiz Khalifa has a tattoo of on his right forearm.
The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Wiz Khalifa collection is available at 100 select Foot Locker stores across the UK and Europe and online at footlocker.eu.
