Wiz Khalifa has come out with a new line of socks, and their colorful prints totally match his colorful personality.
When Wiz first got started in the music business, he was just like everybody else: gold chains, simple colors, baggy jeans barely above his hips (and sometimes not). Sure, that style matched the trend at the time, but it was derivative. He was derivative. And you can’t make it in the music business by being the same as everyone.
Flash forward a decade and now Khalifa has a style all his own. Gone are the boring black and white tees replaced with colorful, floral button downs that just never seem to stay buttoned down. Sneakers have been replaced by stylish flat-bottoms, ripped jeans replaced by snazzy patched denim, and between the two of them are vibrant, exciting socks.
Usually, those socks don’t match, but Wiz had to make a sacrifice for a corporate sponsorship, and wearing his own branded matching toe-wigglers was the price.
From the Swedish company Happy Socks comes Mr. Khalifa’s first line of branded clothing. All his previous partnerships were weed related but it looks like he’s branching out. It’s good to diversify.
The new line is called Happy Socks 412 by Wiz Khalifa, and the centerpiece is a set of 6 socks with each more colorful than the last. There’s the appropriately named “Black & Blue”, the warm and cozy “House on the Hills,” the radiant “Pretty Nights,” and the flowery “Top Floor,” just to name a few.
Each pair can be individually purchased for $14, or you can get a box set of three for $52. Normally you get a discount for bulk purchases, but I guess we’re past that as a society. They also come in kids sizes if you want your little one to have a little flair for their first day of school.
Toe warmers aren’t all that’s on tap. Khalifa also has a pair of boxers in “Raw” and “Black & Blue” colors, as well as a set of women’s underpants in “Pretty Nights” and “House in the Hills”. Get either on its own ($26 per boxer, $22 per panty) or in their own paired package.
These are almost certain to be limited quantities, so order yours now before they’re gone!
