Shai Gilgeous Alexander Teams Up with Converse as Their Rising Star for 2024

February 12, 2024

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has quickly become a force to be reckoned with in the basketball world. He has achieved success in two different areas of influence, making him the perfect fit for Converse’s relaunch of the iconic Weapon sneaker. This shoe was first popularized in the 1980s, just like the man himself, Magic Johnson.

In recent years, the Converse Weapon has gained traction with collaborative efforts from fragment design, Undefeated, and Kasina. Now, with the help of NBA superstar and Converse athlete Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, the shoe is making a grand revival just in time for All-Star Weekend.

The new Weapon Hi and Weapon Lo are now available on the Converse website. These sneakers feature leather uppers, Star Chevron underlays, egret cup soles and outsoles, and the Weapon’s signature Y-bar. The design has been remastered in 2020 under the Converse CX line, incorporating a new foam midsole for enhanced comfort.

You can get your hands on the Converse Weapon right now. It is available in High and Low forms, with each style offered in two colorways. The High version is priced at $120, while the Low version is priced at $110.

This relaunch of the Converse Weapon is a testament to its enduring appeal and the brand’s commitment to staying relevant in the sneaker industry. With Shai Gilgeous-Alexander as the face of this campaign, Converse is sure to make a statement both on and off the court. So don’t miss out on your chance to rock these legendary sneakers once again. Grab a pair now before they’re gone!
