Converse is set to launch the 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.

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. They will be available in three colorways: navy/larkspur, lucky stone/black and black/red.

The Converse CONS Weapon Skate is set to release later this fall at converse.com/CONS as well as select Converse retailers priced at $85.
