The Converse Weapon is coming back again, but not in the same way you might have remembered it. Once the signature sneaker for Magic Johnson and Larry Bird back in 1986, the time-honored silhouette has been updated for a new crop of sneakerheads.
"The Weapon for us is an important silhouette," said design director for Converse CONS Chris Law, adding that the shoe is the third important for Converse behind the Chuck Taylor and Jack Purcell. "We’ve wanted to re-craft and re-master it in a respectful way, but modernize it enough so it can live for another thirty years."
Set to hit stores again this summer, the modified shoe will feature some tweaks in design. Here the CONS design director breaks down Everything You Need to Know About the New Converse Weapon.
