2016 marks the 30th anniversary of Converse‘s Weapon model, and in celebration of the milestone the footwear brand has linked with FACETASM to commandeer a new design. The Japanese label dresses the iconic basketball shoe in two contrasting colorways: a white base with yellow overlays and purple accents, and a black-uppered version with subtle blue and red accents. The  Weapon first came out in 1986 and quickly became a basketball sneaker favorite among the likes of Magic Johnson and Larry Bird. For its 30th anniversary, Converse also recently partnered with N.HOOLYWOOD COMPILE for the Weapon Hi.

Look out for the FACETASM x Converse Weapon to drop November 26 at Architecture and Sneakers (A+S) with a ¥28,500 (approx. $232 USD) price tag.
