Converse have announced the launch of their new CONS Weapon sneaker collection, featuring five hi-top designs, including patchwork, reflective mesh and more subtle heathered cotton styles.
Taking the brand’s original Weapon shape and updating it for a modern, streamlined look, the initial Converse CONS Weapons to launch will be the limited edition patchwork First String style, on June 13th. Next comes two paint splattered Ray Pack colourways – charcoal and light gray – on July 11th, followed by the Reflective Mesh Pack duo on August 9th.
“We are excited to launch the Converse CONS Weapon sneaker collection to build momentum for a newly evolved Converse CONS Weapon inline collection later this summer,” says Chris Law, design director at Converse CONS. “This premium collection is a first look at the launch of a more refined and re-mastered Converse CONS Weapon, while preserving the sneaker’s iconic elements.”
Converse kick off CONS Project London on May 28th, with a launch party at Peckham’s Copeland Park, where Pusha T will be performing.
