The best way to rock Converse's Chuck Taylor sneakers like Wiz Khalifa himself is, paradoxically, to change up the way you wear them. Khalifa has been wearing Chuck Taylor sneakers consistently throughout his entire career, and his dedication to the shoe goes beyond the obvious shout outs in his songs. In fact, his rap crew, Taylor Gang, is named after the Chuck Taylor sneakers that they always wore.
The way Khalifa wears his Converse Chuck Taylors is similar to the way he produces music, both reflections of the self. At times his music and lyrics can be serious and dark, like his 2007 song "Youngin on His Grind." Similarly his Chuck Taylors can be fully laced and all black, where the shoes and the song convey a similar attitude. On the other end of the spectrum, Khalifa's music can be happy and whimsical like the 2007 hit single "Say Yeah" that helped launch him into superstardom. His Converse Chuck Taylors can parallel this upbeat attitude by being bright red, laced halfway and loosely.
In fact, it is pretty hard to wear the Converse's Chuck Taylors in a way that Khalifa has not already done so. However, if you want to wear your shoes like the Taylor Gang champ himself, make sure to steer clear of the variations. These variations include the Chuck Taylor sandals and slips, Khalifa always rocks his Chuck Taylors with laces. At the same time, feel free to change up between the high top and low cut versions, and go with whatever color you want just like Wiz does. Finally, if you want to look like Khalifa from the video for his 2010 hit "Black and Yellow," go grab a pair of the low cut Chuck Taylor All Stars.
