CONVERSE Inc. announced the launch of the Converse CONS Weapon Skate, the newest interpretation of an iconic silhouette developed to address the needs of the Converse CONS skateboarding team and tailored specifically for skateboarding. In celebration of the CONS Weapon Skate launch, Converse released a short film, featuring Converse CONS Skater Zered Bassett, capturing his creativity as he skates through his hometown streets of New York City.
The Converse CONS Weapon Skate combines the classic elements of the iconic Weapon with elevated functional design for skateboarding including enhanced durability, comfort and fit. The sneaker comes equipped with a drop-in Lunarlon sockliner that provides cushioning, 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.
