Converse Weapon – The Return of an Icon

Amidst the buzz of the NBA’s All-Star Weekend in Indianapolis, Converse enthusiasts have reason to celebrate as the iconic Converse Weapon makes its comeback. Following a string of successful collaborations with the likes of Fragment Design, UNDEFEATED, and Kasina, the original Weapon and its low-cut counterpart, the Weapon Ox, are back in Converse’s lineup.

A Nostalgic Revival

Originally introduced in 1986, the Converse Weapon quickly became the go-to sneaker for stars of the late ’80s and early ’90s. Now, Converse is reintroducing these classic silhouettes to a new generation in their original material composition and form. Featuring leather uppers, Star Chevron underlays, egret cup soles and outsoles, and the signature Y-bar, both models retain the essence of their predecessors.

Stepping into the Limelight

Leading the charge for the revived Converse Weapon is none other than Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, the dynamic All-NBA point guard and two-time All-Star. GilgeousAlexander takes center stage in a campaign inspired by the original 1986 “Choose Your Weapon” ads, embodying the spirit of the era while ushering in a new era for the iconic silhouette.

A Timeless Classic, Reimagined

Available in classic colorways such as black and natural ivory, as well as vintage white, ash stone, and egret, the Weapon returns alongside its low-cut counterpart, the Weapon Ox, which comes in white and black, and vintage white and vintage cargo. Both silhouettes hit shelves on February 8, making a statement not just on the court, but in the world of fashion and culture. Whether you’re a long-time fan or a newcomer to the Converse legacy, the return of the Weapon is a moment worth celebrating.
