Model: Weapon CX “Loyalty”
Release Date: December 6 (blue colorway), December 10 (exclusive pre-release for red colorway)
Buy: Highsnobiety Shop
What We’re Saying: The Weapon CX is Converse’s contemporary version of the iconic Weapon, which was the on-court sneaker of choice for a lot of the NBA’s top stars in the ’80s. Magic Johnson and Larry Bird were two notable players that wore the shoe before Michael Jordan changed the sneaker landscape forever. After dropping collaborative pair with Rick Owens and a launch colorway, Converse is set to release a “Loyalty” pack, which features red/white and blue/white colorways of the newly-released sneaker.
The OG design is updated with innovative CX technology and offered in original color-blocked looks that harken back to decades past. Back in the ’80s, during the Weapon’s heyday, the sneaker was available in a number of team colorways, which are mirrored in the color blocking on the “Loyalty” pack. The blue pair was released first, on December 6 for $135, with the red and white pair exclusively pre-releasing on Highsnobiety Shop on December 10.
