Do You Like Wiz Khalifa’s Latest Collaboration With Converse?

Submitted by on August 23, 2014 – 10:59 amNo Comment

Wiz Khalifa has changed a lot since he first showed up on the rap scene. He’s grown and matured into one of the biggest artists in the game today—and it looks like he’s only going to get bigger as the years go on. But one thing that hasn’t changed about Wiz is his love for Converse sneakers. Wiz was wearing Converse sneakers when we first started listening to him a few years back, and he still wears them today. And as a result of that, Converse just agreed to put together their second collaboration with Wiz later this month.

Unlike the first collaboration that Wiz did with Converse, he won’t simply be designing his own version of an existing Converse sneaker. Instead, he’s built a brand new sneaker that’s based on the popular Converse Chuck Taylor All Star sneaker. It’s called the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star ILL and the one thing that you’ll notice about it is that it features a ton of leather on it. From the actual sneaker itself to the logos on the sneaker, everything is done up in leather. There is a white version of the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star ILL as well as a black version of it. And both of them can best be described as “bold.”

As you can see in the photos provided here (hat tip to Complex), Wiz did something pretty unique with the All Star ILL and we’re feeling the designs he went with. But the thing that we like the most about these is undoubtedly the price. There are quite a few other rapper-designed sneakers that sell for hundreds of dollars. But these sneakers will only cost $70 and will be available through a variety of different Converse retailers.

Take a look at what Wiz and Converse have done with the All Star ILL sneakers both above and below. Are you a fan of Wiz’s second collaboration with Converse and are you planning on picking up a pair? Let us know.
