In conjunction with the launch of his upcoming album, “Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty”, Rapper Big Boi linked arms with shoe giant, Converse, to produce his own pair of limited edition Chuck Taylors. In the promo video, Big Boi stated:
“We used to play basketball and tear our ankles up with all that jumping and running around. The thing about Converse to me is they’re classics. It’s like an American classic. I mean, you know what they are when you see ’em. They’ll always be the same. It might be a low-top, high-top. They might just change the colors, but you know what you get when you getting ’em. That’s how I look at my music, the same way. Timeless classics.”
If you agree with Big Boi, you might like his collaboration with Chuck Taylor’s Converse which features red, white and blue. Each shoe bears part of Big Boi’s album title and also Big Boi’s image on the tongues. Big Boi wants to keep things exclusive, and hopes his fans will become not only wearers but collectors.
