The inspiration for the Undefeated Poorman Weapons was classic military uniforms and the materials they used on them. One of the most distinguishable features on the sneaker is the heavy-duty nylon that is used in the Air Force MA-1 flight jackets. The flight jackets material helped keep the pilot well ventilated and warm when it needed to be in changing weather conditions. The same nylon was used on the kicks for you to look fresh and stay fresh as well. Undefeated also laced their kicks with two sets of waxed laces for you to add your flair to your pair. Removable Velcro tongue tags and Converse Chevron insignia is also removable if you wanted to give your pair a different look. Along with the kicks, sneakerholics were offered an Air Force flight helmet bag with the matching colors of the kicks as well. The helmet bags featured the opaque orange hue with the Undefeated 5-Strike logo and on the outside a Converse and Undefeated patch to commemorate the pack.

We are very fortunate to have 4 colorways for you to see on the Sneakerpedia wiki. Can anyone help us upload the grey pair to the wiki? We can’t wait to see what Undefeated will offer next, as the partnership with Converse has grown stronger over the years. Which color way is your favorite?  Were you lucky enough to cop the whole set or are you missing one or two color ways of the set?
