It may not be common knowledge to today’s youth, but Converse was once one of the most dominant brands in the world of Basketball. It was common to see players donning the Converse Weapon in the Larry Bird and Magic Johnson dominant era of the 80s. The iconic silhouette was a revolutionary sneaker in its time, opening the door for Converse’s exploration into performance-based Basketball sneakers. Converse collaborated with the iconic Rick Owen to breathe new life into the classic sneaker. The resulting Converse DRKSDW sees Rick Owen offer a more dramatic take on the sneaker by exaggerating and modernising key features of the Converse Weapon.
