The punk-fueled collaboration with DRKSHDW transforms another court icon: the Converse Weapon. With a rebellious mindset to challenge the ubiquitous and break convention, Rick Owens exaggerates the proportions and distorts the lines of the legendary basketball sneaker. The result is a distinct design that sits at the intersection of hoops style and subversive fashion, bringing the edge of DRKSHDW boots to an iconic ‘80s basketball high top. 

The details:

  • Limited-edition high-top sneaker designed by Rick Owens
  • Reinvented take on the Converse Weapon, an ‘80s basketball classic. 
  • Leather upper with an elevated platform midsole
  • Exaggerated proportions including an elongated tongue and blown-out midsole
  • CX Foam midsole with supportive midfoot side pods
  • Custom Rick Owens wrap-around woven label

The Converse TURBOWPN will launch exclusively online at  from Tuesday, 31 August 2021.

Price: R2 999.95
