The Converse Weapon CX is a brand new take of the classic 80’s shoe, at least from the midsole down. These are a bit confusing and we are not really sure why the brand didn’t come out with an OG Converse Weapon, but we’ll take what we can get. If you want that nostalgia from watching 80’s basketball but also want to look more modern, you have your sneaker right here.
