Wiz Khalifa is the subject of one of the recent ‘Bing Originals’ featurettes by Bing.com, portraying a fitting declaration of Wiz’s personal style and attitude. The tall and spindly hip-hop artist certainly has his own beat of fashion, going from high-end shoes and leather jackets to a snapback and Air Jordans (a range that this video captures perfectly). In this video, we see Wiz in his most rudimentary and relatable form – playing ball at the park with sweats and what appear to be Air Jordans; while the silhouette clearly determines the shoes to be the Air Jordan VI, the question remains which colorway these could be. All signs point to a customized version of the ‘Lakers‘ edition with the soles and midsoles blacked out, although they could always be a sample since there doesn’t seem to be any sign of 3M. Judging by the blacked-out logos on the Charcoal Air Jordan IX’s seen on Wiz’s b-ball opponent, these are likely the result of a branding/logo issue rather than a exposé on a celeb wearing fake Jordans, because Wiz’s Air Jordan rotation has been one of the more impressive ones we’ve seen. We’ve got some more looks at these blackout Air Jordan VI’s, as well as the full video below, so take a look and let us know what you think.
