John Varvatos started using the Converse Weapon as one of his collaborative canvases last year, but we hadn’t seen a new pair for 2013 until today.  Here we see JV’s Weapons taking on the look of a rough and tumble motorcycle gang, as it’s done up in premium black leather with metal studs outlining the eyelet wing and heel panels.  The distressed white cupsole gives these a vintage look like the rest of Varvatos’ Converse collabs, and that, in turn, would suggest you’ll want to get your pair as soon as you can from shops like Kith.
