The Weapon 86 is an absolute classic shoe. This shoe has a big history in basketball and the sneaker world in general.
So one would think that bringing the Converse weapon back to its original form – or as close to it as possible – would make a lot of sense. Especially with the vintage sneakers which are in vogue as they are.
This is not exactly what happened with the CX Weapon. Yes, this is the Converse weapon. But it is far from the original form.
It is not a retro. It’s a remaster. We explore what makes it so different from the OG and if that was the right way to bring the weapon back in the latest episode of SPECIAL DELIVERY.
