  • Converse began in 1908 as a rubber shoe company specializing in galoshes. Soon after, they started using rubber to make sneakers. In 1920, we renamed our canvas basketball sneaker the “All Star.”  To this day, this spirit continues with all of our sneakers and apparel for All Star, Cons and Jack Purcell. As soon as you put them on and start doing your thing, their true life begins. You define them. You determine their journey. They become a one-of-a-kind celebration of your individuality and self-expression. They become a part of you. They’re Made by you.
  • There is NO question that the Chuck Taylor’s is in the top of the list, everyone owns a pair and I am sure of it.
