The Weapons are back and this time they're cooler than ever — but probably not on a basketball court. Think about it, these sneakers came out like a century ago, and as a society we've made advances in cars, TVs, and SNEAKERS. Even though these might not be the most technically sound sneakers anymore, they are still pretty bad ass to wear in casual settings. The sneaker still features its infamous star logo, updated external Y-bar, and a slimmer midsole — all good for steezin' out and not ballin' out.

The sneakers will be available in a slew of classic varsity colorways and will be released on Thursday, August 31, for a cool $85.
