The 80 Greatest Sneakers of the '80s

61. Converse Cons

Year Released: 1986

The Converse Cons was overshadowed by its big brother Weapon, but it's the Cons name that has carried forward through the decades. A lighter leather basketball shoe, the Cons series would eventually spawn an entire line worn by collegians and pros alike before shifting from basketball to skate. (Which makes perfect sense, seeing that these classics were skated by Rodney Mullen, among others.)
