Converse unveiled this week its new CONS Weapon Skate, the interpretation of an iconic silhouette developed for the brand's skate team.

The sneaker combines the classic elements of the iconic Weapon model with elevated functional design for skateboarding such as enhanced durability, comfort and fit. It 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.

In celebration of the CONS Weapon Skate 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 Converse CONS Weapon Skate launches this fall in three colorways (Navy Larkspur, Lucky Stone Black and Black/Red) at for $85 USD.
