Roll up in Wiz Khalifa Converse kicks
Wiz Khalifa has been living by his mantra, "Work Hard Play Hard" - and he shows no sign of slowing down. After some time off with his newborn and wife, the rapper has been recording his third solo album "Blacc Hollywood," which hits stores this fall, according to Vibe. He also announced last month a collaboration with Converse to design a collection that offers a hip hop take on the traditional Chuck Taylor sneakers, which he's been seen sporting from the start of his career. Vibe noted that the partnership makes perfect sense seeing as he frequently emphasizes he wears "everything Taylored."
Wiz updated the classic kicks with detailing like a camouflage canvas exterior and his insignia on the insole. High-tops feature olive green leather heel support, in addition to edgy silver square studs on the tongue. Even the tread has remarkable detailing, with bright cobalt and green camo print on the bottom of one pair.
Too anxious to rock some Chucks before the collection is released on Aug. 23? Try the laidback All Star Slouchy high-tops, the leather lace-up Hollis sneaker or the badass Outsider boot, all at Jimmy Jazz stores or on JimmyJazz.com.
Do you remember your first pair of Chucks?
