When thoughts of the Converse Weapon arrive, memories of the NBA’s golden era immediately come to mind thanks to the shoe being anchored by Magic Johnson during the Showtime Lakers dominance. Converse smartly re-contextualized the former performance basketball model for lifestyle use, one that’s seen a number of notable 2014 releases like the Patchwork pair. Today we get a look at the previously previewed Heather Grey/Speckled pair that has a casual base contrasted by bright yellow accents (They even comes with an alternate pair of laces that glow in the dark). What do you think of the resurgence of the Converse CONS Weapon? Be sure to check out a preview of the latest release after the click and stay tuned for more right here on Sneaker News.

The Converse CONS Weapon has seen a resurgence through a number of limited releases to create a buzz (we’re looking at the creative “Patchwork” and the classic “Lakers” colorways of recent) and now the silhouette has branched out in to the skating world with this release of the Converse Weapon Skate OX. The model features a low cut silhouette yet keeps things right in line with the classic hoops sneaker. We’ve seen this methodology before, with vintage basketball sneakers like the Nike Dunk and Air Jordan 1 repurposed as a skate shoe. This particular colorway sees a simple stone grey upper outfitted with a gum sole for a timeless look. Check out more images below of the upcoming Converse release and if you’re feeling this pair you can grab them today via Premier.

The Converse Cons Weapon has seen a resurgence in popularity thanks to the ubiquitous American brand bringing back some of the most coveted colorways of the classic basketball model, whether it be that iconic Lakers colorway or the fact that they made them extremely limited. The exclusivity route seems to be the mode of operation for the Converse Weapon right now, as the latest “Patchwork” release will see a similarly slated drop. Inspired by vintage sports jerseys, each panel gets a different inspiration ranging from the mesh stylings of the 90s Phoenix Suns duds, to the letter blocking of the Kings on one toebox and the Lakers on the other. The pair is definitely eye-catching and with such a cool concept, will this compel you enough to try and grab a pair? They’re available overseas right now at select retailers like Footpatrol.
