Throughout his career, Khalifa has been known to wear and endorse Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star shoes, one of the inspirations to the name of his label and collective, the Taylor Gang.
Previously, Kid Cudi and Big Boi have worked closely with Converse. The brand also maintains its Converse Rubber Tracks studio in Brooklyn, New York, which has been used by artists ranging from GZA to Action Bronson to MaG.
