Back in March, Wiz Khalifa announced that the had signed a deal with Converse, fulfilling a lifelong dream for the Pittsburgh native who named his high school crew and record label after the brand's most recognizable silhouette. Now, Wiz is preparing to officially launch his first signature shoe with Converse — the All Star Swag Hi.
A descendant of the iconic Chuck Taylor all Star, the Swag Hi pulls cues from WIz's personal sense of style and features artistic details from Wiz himself. Below is a closer look at the upcoming release in "Grey Camo," complete with leather trim, metal eyelets, subtle red and blue accents, a studded tongue, waxed laces and translucent camo outsole. The collection is officially marked by a Converse x Wiz Khalifa leather tag along the insole.
Read on for detailed shots of the Wiz Khalifa Collection promotional trunk that was seeded to media this week. Included was the Swag Hi, iPod Nano, a flash drive with Wiz Khalifa music, a Speakerboxx by Leed's and a poster.
The Wiz Khalifa Collection by Converse will launch next Friday, August 23 at Foot Locker.
