One More Shoe Blog, Then We'll Shut Up

This is a Poorman Weapon from Converse, so called because back int' day they made a canvas version of the leather ones that all the sports players wore so that the kids (who we imagine lived in some 'colourful' neighbourhood in Brooklyn circa 1977) could afford 'em. We also like that it's called a weapon & we envisage back in 70s Brooklyn you would need a weapon wherever you walked.
(not like to today where it's all organic deli's & yoga centres)
It has been re-issued to celebrate Size? 10th birthday where it is stocked exclusively.
