Forever associated with rebellion and originality, Converse today has become synonymous with trendy sneakers, appealing to men, women, teenagers and kids alike.
The origins of ‘America’s Original Sports Company’ dates back to 1908 when Marquis Mills Converse founded a rubber shoe factory in Massachusetts. How it became the popular brand that it is today can be attributed to its early support of basketball, which practically originated and grew alongside Converse. A groundbreaking moment in the history of this brand was getting Chuck Taylor on board, who was then a young basketball player signed on to promote the footwear brand as well as the sport in different parts of the United States. The celebrated ‘Chuck Taylor All-star’ basketball shoes were born; in black and white at first, and different colors from 1966 onwards. Other renowned designs include the ‘Jack Purcell’ badminton sneakers designed in 1935, named after the famous badminton champion. The ‘Weapon’ sneaker developed in 1978 also became an instant ‘on-court’ favorite among professional, college and high school basketball teams and remained hugely popular through the ‘80s and ‘90s. And not to mention the Converse All Star high top and One Star classic sneakers which continue to be loved.
The trendy and stylish Converse sneakers have become a mainstream fashion craze with outlets throughout the world. From celebrities to skaters, from local coffee shops to nightclubs- Converse sneakers are everywhere.
