Heavy Rotation: Lace-up boots, Keds Champion, Converse Chuck Taylors, Retro Jordans

Following up Rolling Papers and the success of “Black & Yellow” was a tall task. Nevertheless, Wiz stayed busy in the following year and a half by making a movie, dropping a soundtrack, a mixtape, and the official follow-up, O.N.I.F.C. The album spawned the platinum single “Work Hard, Play Hard” as well as the well-received “Remember You” which featured The Weeknd. A winter release in 2012 would later spawn a summer tour in 2013 with fellow fly-guys A$AP Rocky and Trinidad Jame$.

The Andre 3000-esque album cover outfit would be telling of Wiz’s sartorial choices during this album run. For the most part, Wiz took a break from traditional sneakers, sporting punk rock lace-up boots or festival friendly Keds. Later on, he’d return to his retro roots, rocking vault Jordans and eventually releasing his first official collaboration with Converse.
