Converse continues partnership with rapper Whiz Khalifa


Fans of rapper Wiz Khalifa’s line of Converse shoes will have more to choose from this fall.

The shoemaker announced that it would unveil a collection of shoes inspired and designed by the rapper for the upcoming season. The new line is Kahlifa’s second collaboration with Converse, and will feature a new twist on the classic Chuck Taylor shoe — the All Star ILL.

“I am very excited about continuing my relationship with Converse and releasing this new sneaker collection,” Khalifa said. “We spent a lot of time designing each part of the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star ILL and the end result is exactly what I wanted."

The shoe comes in black and white, and features leather uppers and an enlarged version of the Chuck Taylor Logo. It also comes with branded Whiz Kahlifa eyelets and logos, and the black version has a gold-flecked, translucent outsole. The shoe will retail for $70 and start being sold at Footaction, Eastbay and Foot Locker stores

Khalifa, since he released his debut album “Rolling Papers” in 2011, has partnered with various brands including apparel brand Neff for his Blacc Hollywood line of hats, T-shirts, hoodies and sweatshirts. He has also partnered with hat designer Flat Fitty and Raw Rolling Papers for his own line smoking accessories.
