This lot features Magic Johnson's Converse Weapon PEs from his 1985-1986 NBA season.
Magic Johnson accomplished virtually everything a player could dream of during his 13-year NBA career, all of which was spent with the Los Angeles Lakers. He was a member of five championship teams, won the Most Valuable Player Award and the Finals MVP Award three times each. He was also a 12-time All-Star, an unbelievable accomplishment.
To this day, Magic is famously associated with the Converse Weapon silhouette, arguably being one of his most iconic basketball sneakers. His 1985-1986 NBA season was also the first debut of the Converse Weapon, which would later become a huge part of basketball and sneaker history.
This design features a white, purple, and gold colorway, which matches the Los Angeles Lakers uniform. Converse branding can be found on the tongues and midsoles, along with a fully leather upper and padding in the heel and ankle areas. The sneakers are finished with “Magic” placed on the uppers.
