Sneaker: Converse Weapon "Lakers"
Released: 1986
City: Los Angeles, CA

Nothing represents Los Angeles better than purple and gold (at least in the '80s, sorry Clippers Nation). It was an era in which bright colors weren't really a part of mainstream sneakers and Magic Johnson led the Lake Show dynasty. Converse couldn't have had better timing than they did bringins Magic and Bird together in unforgettable commercials and a Lakers inspired colorway that will always be one of the most respected sneakers of all time.
