Converse has announced the release of the CONS Weapon Skate, the newest interpretation of an iconic silhouette developed to address the needs of the Converse CONS skateboarding team. The CONS Weapon Skate combines the classic elements of the iconic Weapon with functional design elements ideal for skateboarding, including a drop-in Lunarlon sockliner, perforated memory foam, and a gusseted tongue construction. A mesh underlay on the hallmark Star Chevron increases breathability and CONS Traction Rubber enhances a skater’s grip. In celebration of the launch, Converse released a short film featuring team skater Zered Bassett, capturing his creativity as he skates through his hometown streets of New York City. The CONS Weapon Skate is now available in Navy Larkspur, Lucky Stone Black, and black/red at Converse retail stores and online for $85 USD.
