During the 1980s the rivalry between the Boston Celtics and the Los Angeles Lakers was one of the biggest in history, and the inspiration behind this Converse Weapon Rivalry Pack. Magic Johnson from the Lakers and Larry Johnson from the Celtics both were endorsed by Coverse during their playing days and both wore the Coverse Weapon during the mid 80s.
To honor the rivalry between the Celtics and the Lakers, Bird and Johnson, Converse put together the Converse Weapon Rivalry Pack which includes a colorway of the Converse Weapon in the Celtics colors and the Lakers colors. The Boston Celtics colorway was laid out on a high-top version of the Converse Weapon while the Lakers black/purple/gold colorway lands itself on a low top version. Both have tongue tags which say ‘Weapresent’ which is also printed on the inner lining.
The Celtics vs Lakers Converse Weapon Rivalry Pack is limited to a total of 250 pairs worldwide and only available at select retailers such as Solebox.
