Converse Brings Back the CONS Aerojam

Converse Brings Back the CONS Aerojam

Converse CONS Aerojam (1)

words // Brandon Richard

Before the 4-point play in Madison Square Garden, Larry Johnson was best known for his five seasons with the Charlotte Hornets. In Charlotte, LJ averaged 19.6 points, 9.2 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game, earning All-Star Game nods in 1993 and 1995. One of the game’s biggest personalities, Johnson had an endorsement deal with Converse, a partnership that lasted until 1999.

While with Converse, Johnson was the name linked to some of the brand’s most popular performance shoes, perhaps none more beloved than 1993’s Aerojam. A sign of the times, the Aerojam was cushioned with Converse’s liquid-based REACT Juice technology. Other standout features included a removable and reversible lace shroud and fading splatter print details.

Last made available 10 years ago, the Aerojam is back for another run. The updated CONS design is stitch-for-stitch the same silhouette as the original model. Available now is the original Black/Peacoat Blue colorway worn by Johnson in ’93, while new Grey/Black and Grey/Orange colorways will follow on Tuesday, November 26.

Today, Converse launches the CONS Anarchy, a brand new style that echoes influences from 90s sneaker culture in a form that’s focused on clean execution and individual style.

The Anarchy features a suede build, padded collar and a pronounced hook and loop strap that can be worn tucked into jeans or hanging free on the side. Other unique elements include the Star Chevron logo, a translucent sole and ribbed detailing.

These casual Converse shoes now available in Red, Black and Grey with pops of bright color accents.

Converse Poorman Weapon Hi

words_Nick Engvall

Over the last year or so, Converse has introduced the Poorman Weapon with collaborative efforts from some of the top boutiques from around the country. Thanks to the success of those collaborations, the silhouette already has some buzz around it, despite not having any general release colorways available yet.

It’s not so much a surprise that this style would be successful, as it has the genes of two of the most popular Converse styles of all time. The Poorman Weapon takes influences from the Chuck Taylor All Star and the Converse Weapon. Paneling and the Converse Chevron logo on the side panel are inspired by the classic eighties style Weapon, and the lightweight and flexible efficient style of the Chuck Taylor All Star combine for not only a new future-classic style, but also come at a price that is equally appealing.

The first two colorways of the Poorman Weapon come in a purple and white combination, and a black and white version, both of which feature a suede finish.
