Converse Weapon CX Singapore Drop Set For Late 2021

2021 update: It’s quite clear at first glance, but the Converse Weapon has been given a modern redesign. The changes come on both the design and technology front.

The Weapon gets a midsole overhaul using Converse’s new proprietary cushioning technology, CX. This offers a more plush midsole feel and a soft construction on the upper.

Modernizing the Weapon’s design is the chunkier midsole that offers a double-layered look. It also contains the CX cushioning, so it is both a form and functional update.

Some things never change: The Converse Weapon CX retains the upper of the originals ‘80s sneaker which includes the full leather upper and iconic “Y-bar” ankle collar that offered leading stability back in the day.
