Wiz Khalifa sunglasses are a hit

Last year rapper Wiz Khalifa designed a pair of ‘Elevator’ sunglasses, 500 of which were released to the public. And even with a hefty $225 price tag, they’ve just about sold out.

Eyetique, the Pittsburgh-based manufacturer, says that the seven online stores selling the shades saw website traffic soar, with 30% of sales happening outside America.

Wiz Khalifa’s debut album, 'Rolling Papers', is out at the end of the month.


Watch the video for his latest single, ‘Black and Yellow,’ in which he wears the custom sunglasses that inspired the Elevators, here:
